Seo Jong Min-- Came on as a sub after an hour and played through ET but Dresden lost. Hopefully a sign for a bigger role off the bench going forward.

Park Kyu Hyun-- Didn't play with reserves midweek so slightly greater chance of at least making the squad.

Jeong Woo Yeong-- Came on as a sub and missed his PK. Likely to start but maybe the minutes and showing midweek (which I didn't see) increases chances of being dropped to bench, though Petersen is out reducing attacking alternatives.

Lee Jae Sung-- LJS started at RCM again and was very lively, winning balls in the air and defending more effectively than recently. Unfortunately, he was a bit overeager in attack, turning the ball over a few too many times. A positive trend as he settles into a more consistent role and a decent chance of starting this weekend.

Son Heung Min-- I didn't watch this yet and apparently I shouldn't as it was apparently a slog of a win. Should start this weekend after being rested midweek.

Choi Kyoung Rok-- The action wasn't flowing towards CKR's direction, playing right wing nominally, but dropping deeper and wider to help out on defense and then pushing forward closer to a 10 role in attack. He had a couple of decent moments and certainly was scrappy in pressing though a bit less effective as a pure defender. But when the moment came, with a sloppy pass out of the back by the Leverkusen GK, CKR was ready, intercepting the pass and calmly curling it around the keeper to put Karlsruhe into the next stage. Should start with extra day of rest.

Lee Kang In-- Suspended midweek but should start this weekend.

Hwang Ui Jo-- A greater chance of returning this weekend though I'm not sure how much of that is bluffing or how much he can play if he does make the squad.

Suk Hyun Jun-- Continuing his role off the bench.

Hwang Hee Chan-- Seems to have a firm grip on a starting role for now.
