This is gonna shock and anger a lot of you, but there's a possibility of 4-3-3 I think.

I expect one of these two as the offensive line for this game:

Silva and Cutrone in a 3-5-2

Borini - Silva - Suso in a 4-3-3.

ET? Is this the first time a poster has opened a match thread with American time zones?

I think it's not a matter of 3 at the back or 4, it's about the backline getting more training hours under their belt as a unit more than anything.

Since our defense hasn't yet started working in tandem as a unit, better we have a double pivot system, which will better protect them.

That's why the 4-3-3 leaves our backline susceptible, due to the single pivot.

So even a 4-2-3-1 will be better suited for us than the 4-3-3 for now Imo, but a 3 man backline gives us more numbers in the middle... Also we have no pace on the flanks up front for a 4-2-3-1.

^Yes we are severely restricted on the wings. However, we must have at least 2 systems of play that needs to be drilled in well enough to be used tactically against big teams. SPAL is a good opportunity to try to get the 4-man defense right. Using the flanks won't work - I agree. It should be more a 4-3-1-2 with Hakan in the hole, or a 4-3-2-1 with Hakan and Suso supporting the striker.

But Montella could easily choose to go 4-3-3 with Borini and Suso on the flanks again and try to get that right - if he feels the Lazio performance was due to other reasons and not tactical.

Basically, I won't be surprised if this match is used to get the alternative tactic to 3-5-2 right.

Don't think we need to be resting too many of our key players here.. maybe Biglia because of his recent injury. I really don't want to drop points somehow here.
