Leao needs to play as a striker. He also needs to press more, that's the only thing from holding him back. He does defensive work though, but he doesn't press in the attacking sense.

Great win. I hope Bennacer can come back for Juve. We need him.
Benna will not be fit.

Leao needs mental practice and learn the movents of CF. But mental issue 1st. Concentration above all.

He did fine without being a standout.

He?s no Theo but he didn?t try complicate things too much. I?m happy with his current role and contribution

I genuinely prefer to see the team go man down than up against these teams. Especially without Ibra and Bennacer. This is a counter-oriented team.

Anyone else sometimes get Seedorf vibes from Kessie? He’s a player that’s got quantity and quality attributes just like early Clarence did with us.

This is just his natural look when he's running, he looks like he's smiling in almost every picture while he's playing. It's weird.

Or... We could just realize this and openly embrace it so without Ibra we just play a low block and counter. Romagnoli would love it.

Yep, I believe Ibra?s absence both required and forced a tactical switch.

Pioli tried target man Rebic and then Leao and it wasn?t effective. Switched to this counter attacking style and it benefitted both players immensely. It?s a different style than we won with after the COVID break, but it?s proving to be just as effective. Tactical flexibility is a sign of a great team.

For me he's decent. Defensively i trust him in the 1 vs 1. But his positioning is a bit awkward sometimes. He leaves a lot of space for the opponents.

I don't think there's that choice if a provincial team is a man down. They'll set up a camp in and around their box regardless of how deep our team is positioned.

I think the way Pioli is setting up the team 11vs11, without Ibra, is balanced and as counter-oriented as the opponents allow it to be. Some teams(Sassuolo, Lazio) are more willing to dominate possession than others(Parma, Genoa).

Seems to have a tendency to drift toward the middle of the pitch.

A very important win which showed great team work after Tonali's stupid decision for the red card. Donnarumma and Kjaer were immense. A great team display going into the Juve game.

Forza Milan!
