Ji Dong Won -- Even if he's been inconsistent on the offensive end, clearly Baum trusts Ji to do his job as an aerial target and and put in 90 minutes of effort. Ji should start, especially given uncertainty of other attackers.

Koo Ja Cheol -- Baum's had a hard time of filling all the gaps in Augsburg's play with Koo but that reflects Koo's good work and some of the problems at other positions Augsburg has. Koo should start.

Park Joo Ho -- He injured his knee in training so even less probability of making squad than normal.

Lee Chung Yong -- He's not even made squad recently. With a win last week, I don't expect any changes.

Ki Sung Yueng -- At the time of this post, Ki started to return to individual training on the ball, and looks to be nearing a return to team training. Even if he were healthy, I'd expect at best a bench role so we'll see if he's fit enough to make the squad.

Kwon Chang Hoon -- We'll see what the manager thinks of KCH's job but he should at least make a sub appearance if not a bigger role.

Son Heung Min -- I don't think Poch will change things after such a big win so bench for Son. A tougher challenge this week so we may see more of him than 5 minutes of garbage time.
