I have a feeling we're going to be seeing something closer to a 4231 than the typical Gattuso 433. I think Bakayoko won't play like Kessie. He'll hang back with Biglia, trying to dominate the middle of the park while Hakan floats in front, with Castillejo starting out on the left but will be floating across all over the place acting as our outball for direct transitions. When we defend we'll go back to 4141 obviously, but i'm very interested to see if Bakayoko plays like Kessie or if he will play a different role alongside Biglia.

I'm assuming Gattuso is resting both Kessie and Paqueta, which seems likely based on reports.

Bakayoko definitely wont play like Kessie because his characteristics are completely different. He'll be on the ball more and making less runs. But him sitting back will not be ideal, he will move forward and carry the ball while Calhanoglu becomes the free man more often than he usually does I think.

I think Bakayoko and Kessie are a little more similar than you're saying. Bakayoko obviously has far more specialized skills and an incredible sense of positioning when anticipating a tackle, but they can both carry the ball with strength and purpose and also find space to run into (this is where Kessie is better).

You're right that Biglia will most likely sit back and anchor the midfield and also that Bakayoko won't sit back in the same way, but I guess what I was trying to say was that he won't play in the same line as Hakan when we have possession. With Paqueta and Kessie in midfield they usually played on the same line, but now I think Hakan will play much further ahead than Bakayoko who will mainly try to clean up second balls behind the forwards. He won't have as many insertions as Kessie, that's my guess.

Definitely interesting to see how Bakayoko is deployed and how he interprets the role. He's actually pretty good on the ball so I'm excited to see what he can do.

Yes, Kessie for disciplinary reasons and he'd already been hoping to rest Paqueta, who since then played twice for Brazil.

Kessie isn't benched for disciplinary reasons. He arrived late back due to being with his national team and missed some training so isn't "ready". Make of it what you will, but a rest will do him good.

You really think Gattuso will change his 433 formation?

Ronaldo Vieira and Jacopo Sala are Sampdoria's 2 biggest weaknesses.
