Week 35: Juventus vs Milan 9/05/2021 20:45 CEST
 
Standings
2. Atalanta 69
3. Juventus 69
4. Milan 69
5. Napoli 67
6. Lazio 64-67*

FIRST LEG


COMPETITORS GAMES
Spezia - Napoli
Fiorentina - Lazio
Parma - Atalanta

TOPCIS
  • Very important game as it's do or die for both teams. At least one of the two is expected to lose a top 4 spot by the end.
  • Since everyone is so close, H2H might decide the final positioning and currently it is not working in our favour. Something to consider.
  • Should gigio dollarumma play against the team he is heavily linked with? Can we trust him?
  • None of our other competitors are expected to drop points this week

Nice design for this match thread. I hope this somehow translates to a nice performance from our players

The two clubs are playing worse than each other at the moment but a big game like this should be a motivation in itself. Time for a last push, anything less would be a real shame considering the journey of a season we've been through

I think Napoli and Atalanta have tricky games

Edit: are fans allowed to this? If i remember they said that they will let fans from May

Parma are doomed so I don't expect them to trouble Atalanta.
None of Fiorentina and Spezia are safe from what is a very tight relegation race so Napoli and Lazio may both be in for some hard-fought matches.

ladri actually have a tough schedule, they play 5 games in 15 days

9/05 ladri - Milan
12/05 Sassuolo - ladri
15/05 ladri - merda
19/05 Atalanta - ladri (Coppa Italia Final)
23/05 Bologna - ladri

I hope Sassuolo and merda do us favours, and more importantly we do ourselves a favour

Jivara 03-05-2021 23:29

Juve will drop points, they've been playing horribly even against teams that don't need the win.

We need to stop thinking about the others and worry about our own form.

Nestafan 04-05-2021 00:45

Now imagine if this scenario was happening in the Super League

Jivara 04-05-2021 01:15

Or the new CL format.. which will have an additional number of matches

I agree, adding the more teams to the Champions League is ludicrous too but it is much more the lesser of two evils

joyrider 04-05-2021 08:26

We need to trash them, ibra will prove something against them.

Hitchens 04-05-2021 09:31

This would be the most feelgood win this season.

But doesn't the new format ensure that the extra 4 spots goes to teams with historical whatnot :fp:

Its more or less the same idea that goes against sporting merit

They ll drop points. Only question s our form. I d take even draw with wins against torino and cagliari.
Also by time we play atalanta they ll secure top 4. Also this game in cup final might drain them just like juve.

Honestly im optimistic.

Goodfella 04-05-2021 12:12

Win or die.

I do not want to see high press 4-2-4 with old/unfit/lazy players, like in recent weeks. These 3-0 or 3-1 big game losses are getting tiring.

But I also don't see Pioli benching any of those old/unfit/lazy player, except Leao.

Oh well. Hopefully Ibra will be clinical this time, and Dolla at his best. We're gonna need that.

Nestafan 04-05-2021 12:21

Editing post.

I thought it was 2 teams, no? Still 4 is a lesser evil than 15. But it's all bullshit. Hate the adjustments. UEFA are pricks too.

pippofan 04-05-2021 13:38

I would start Tonali in place of Bennacer.

Selection of additional four spots according to UEFA?s official website:

Quote:


Qualification for the Champions League will continue to be open and depend on a club?s final position in the previous season?s domestic league competition. The additional four slots available in 2024-25 will be allocated according to three different criteria:

Slot one: awarded to a club from the country placed fifth in UEFA?s national association coefficient rankings. Each association?s coefficient is based on the results of its clubs? performances in five previous Champions League and Europa League seasons.


Slot two: awarded to the domestic league champion with the highest club coefficient among all other domestic champions that have not automatically qualified for the Champions League?s league stage.

Slots three and four: awarded to the two clubs with the highest club coefficients that have not qualified automatically for the Champions League?s league stage, but have qualified either for the Champions League qualification phase or the Europa League/the Europa Conference League (due to start in the 2021-22 season).
