Default Week 36: Torino vs Milan 12/05/2021 20:45 CEST

Let's start focusing on our next task.

We won the home game thanks to a Leao goal and a Kessie pen.

Torino risk playing without N'Kolou and Sirigu.

I haven't seen any rumoured XIs yet but Saele is suspended and Ibra, Brahim are likely to miss the game because of knocks.

My preferred XI:

Donna
Calabria - Kjaer - Tomori - Theo
Kessie - Bennacer
Dalot - Hakan - Leao
Rebic

Diaz for Dalot if available, Hauge to sub for Leao.

Andiamo!

problem with playing both leao and rebic is we wont have anyone on the bench able to make the difference.
samu and mandzu?? diaz will be needed to replace hakan since we gonna play 2 times per week (good other serieA teams also)
of course there is also krunic ... and hauge

Well if juve game was called ?the biggest and most important match of the last 10 years? this is a double of it.

I hope we keep our heads down and have the same attitude and determination and beat them. Always hated Torino away but its now or never

You know for sure that Castillejo is starting this one. Let's not avoid the inevitable.

Win here, Inter spank Juventus, and barring Lazio winning all of their four games while we lose the other two (and Napoli + Atalanta also win all theirs) we're in CL.

Brahim will lay on the right? Hakan in the centre?.

Most important questions:
  1. Do we switch back to 4-2-3-1 after winning with 4-4-2?
  2. Who replaces Alexis on the right (Samu of course, who am I kidding?)
  3. Does Torino have anything left to play for?
  4. Do they have any suspensions to key players?

My guess is we?ll follow the old Italian mister adage of ?don?t change a winning team? and stick with 4-4-2, but with Samu on the right and Rebic + Diaz up front. We may even see a change in the central midfield, since Bennacer is just getting back into form from injuries and may need a rest. Tonali?

Rebic-Diaz
Hakan-Kessie-Tonali-Samu
Theo-Tomori-Kjaer-Cala (Kalu?)

4231 and 442 are very similar, especially if you call what we played yesterday a 442. What's interesting is how Pioli described his intentions, to play with fewer 'forwards' and just attack with more players, meaning fewer reference points up front that the defense can predictably control. Ibra floating around, and Brahim floating also, so the defenders don't know whether to push up or stay back. Sometimes it didn't work, for example balls played through thinking someone was making a run that was badly timed, or Ibra laying off to no one... But I really like it.

Agreed in terms of positions, but the interpretation of roles depends on who plays that central attacking midfield/SS spot. If Diaz is available and plays up there he will be more available near the box and will be more of a goal threat, which will push Hakan out wide and essentially we won’t have as much width. If Hakan plays centrally then the left sided player will likely be wider by nature of who we can deploy there (Rebic/Leao/Hauge) and the striker will need to be more isolated. Neither Rebic or Leao are as effective when isolated up front, so I prefer we attempt a 4-4-2 again.

Maybe Samu scores one of his very rare goals

no worries, it will be a 442 in certain phases


in the attacking phase, we will switch to bulldozer mode
