We play Jeonbunk Hyundai FC tomorrow for our last game in The United Arab Emirates. The reigning Korean Champions  have won the K-league 4 times in the past 6 years including being the champs for the past two seasons. Our team is most likely going to lineup with two almost separate teams for both halves as they did in our last against Eintracht Frankfurt. While our  Park Joo-ho never played in the K-league  he'll go up against some familiar faces from his national side teammates such as Korean legend Lee Dong-gook. Our number 23 the one and only Kagawa also should be familiar with many players in this Jeonbunk side as he's faced the Korean National team more than a few times in his Japanese First team career.

Things to Watch For

  • We really hope to see our youngsters out there some more. It'd be great if Felix Passlack and Christian Pulisic could play together on the pitch as their bromance is almost as legendary as the Auab-Reus one is now.
  • Amid rumors of an exit Moritz Leinter was given a chance to shine in our game vs SGE.Although he wasn't super impressive, another decent performance could at least cement him as a good rotation player for our hectic Rückrunde schedule.
  • Goals!!! We tallied 4 against SGE and there's no reason to think we shouldn't try to hit a similar mark against what should be a weaker side.
  • Who's in the squad and isn't. with all the transfer rumors bouncing around, any odd exclusions from the squad will probably reheat those rumors, so don't be surprised if twitter blows up when the lineups are announced. However I believe that a being excluded from a friendly probably isn't too much of a confirmation of any rumors out there
  • How to watch: Game will be on BVBs free streaming site at 7:45 am EST. Hope you watch with us!
