TURIN, September 19, 2014 – There is plenty of choice for Massimiliano Allegri, finally. On the contrary: Vidal … is there. Yeah, well King Arturo joins the ranks of skilled and recovered (almost certainly). He shall be, together with Andrea Barzagli finally ready to take the field for at least a portion of the game. And along with Alvaro Morata that – in the final part of the last game – continues to put playing time in his legs, approaching a state of acceptable form (such as to enable him to play at least 45 minutes). It is not dependent on a more serious injury sustained at the beginning of the preparation during the preseason (the well-known second-degree injury of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee).
As for the game system, Allegri is geared towards the confirmation of the 3-5-2 formation used so far in the league (against Chievo and Udinese) and Champions League (with Malmö). The classic 3-5-2 “at the Allegri”, with some changes compared to the version Conte. The current Juventus is pointing even more to the ball possession and the strikers are slightly relieved of defending duties : less included in these moves, therefore more free to give their best of being offensive.
3-5-2, in particular, with Martin Caceres, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini impassable dam (this is what hope in Juve, at least …) in front of Gigi Buffon. In midfield space instead, definitely, to Claudio Marchisio in the control room (instead of Pirlo) and Paul Pogba, his faithful squire. The third in the coalition of the center should be Roberto Pereyra, unless today and tomorrow morning Vidal conditions prove excellent: as we looked forward to, the tests conducted yesterday gave the green light for the convocation but for what concerns the actual use will have to wait. Talks. Confront. And only in extremis will dissolved the last doubts.
Some uncertainty also in the left lane, with Kwadwo Asamoah ahead of Patrice Evra, while to the right will certainly play Stephan Lichtsteiner. In attack, space for Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente. Confirmed. With Morata on the bench, to be included in the final instead of Navarrese, or possibly together with the Lion King and the Apache. The hypothesis of a offensive trident in during the game is not in fact be ruled out, indeed. Especially if Barzagli gives good guarantees, you might finally see some spark of 4-3-3.
