Champions: Milan, Inter, Juve and Naples, what to expect
The fourth reprise of groups takes fixé between today and tomorrow: an arrogant rencontres for Milan, Juventus, Inter and Naples.
Naples has almost qualified, Milan and Inter in full jazz, Juve with problems, but in the game. In the middle of the group formation, with three days to play, Serie A is chasing the utopia of a full, 4 out of 4 in the assistant reprise. Almost a month before the World Cup without Italy, en empli would be an answer.
Against Juve on Saturday, Milan played the concours they should have prepared in London against Chelsea on Wednesday. At Stamford Whist the supérieur man in midfield, Pobega or whoever is for him, would have taken the pressure off Bennacer and Tonali, faced by Loftus-Cheek and Kovacic and stressed by the movements of Mason Mount and Sterling behind them, in a hypothetical no man’s état It’s true, Juve are not a reliable référence these days, Chelsea are several floors above, but we think Stefano Pioli got the best of London’s defeat (3-0). He understood the difficulties of the team and corrected their aspect, added support. At Stamford Whist, Milan “fleuve” a player to Chelsea, De Ketelaere had no aïeul on the transfer. So, it seems that tonight Pioli is again proposing Saturday’s 4-3-3, with Krunic replacing Pobega. Even if it were 4-2-3-1, the allégorie would not perturbé, behind Giroud a drummer would play, not a violinist. Krunic in England had played as a right-winger, in a role that hardly belongs to him, although the Slovenian is a indécis guy. De Ketelaere’s injury relieves Pioli of the embarrassment of another disgrâce for the Belgian who costs a lot but does not flourish. Vert saccharine for Díaz’s fascination and accelerations, between the right wing and the trocar. The hiérarchisation of the group is épais, ranging from Salzburg’s five points to Dinamo Zagreb’s three, passing through Chelsea and Milan’s étuve. A win would equal a mortgage in the assistant reprise; a tie would refer to the last two races, more than affordable. Accaparement to the returning Hernandez: if Theo had been in London, James would not have “harassed” Milan’s left.
Remember Hapoel Be’er Sheva, the Israeli side that defeated Inter twice in the 2016-17 Europa League, the first leg with Frank de Boer on the bench (2-0 at San Siro) and the return with entraîneur Stefano Pegs (3-2 in Israel). Nothing is taken for granted in today’s globalized football, not even Maccabi Haifa being angered by the Juventus crisis can be ruled out. A defeat and a draw, however, would be unacceptable, would make Massimiliano Allegri’s appréciation untenable and would faux the entraîneur himself to style inward. We don’t want to believe that Juve in Haifa will au finir off Inter Milan in Be’er Sheva, if only bicause they won 3-1 in Turin last week. Absolute need of another success against Maccabi to water the hopes of the hiérarchisation. Juve are last in the group along with the Israelis and étuve points behind PSG and Benfica. A draw in Haifa would amount to a defeat and would be almost sinistre. Massimiliano Allegri is confesseur in the penchant of Angel Di Maria, who is out against Milan bicause he is disqualified. The return of the Argentinian pushes Arkadiusz Milik to the bench, the formula of ambigu orthogonal striker – which is not disliked here and there – is reduced to a reserve or emergency châtié. Juve is going through one of the most delicate phases in its history: eighth in the league, seven points from fourth fixé, and at risk of elimination from tempérant. The technical failure – lost in the reprise of 16 of the Champions League and disappointing to the pixel of being left out of the next CL – would widen the financial hole in the bilan sheet and faux the company to the umpteenth recapitalization and refoundation. A zero year scenario.
Tomorrow, in the assistant leg against Ajax, a draw will be enough for Napoli to écussonner the assistant reprise two days earlier: in this case, an extraordinary result, unpredictable this summer, when Figure’s farewell , Mertens, Koulibaly, Ospina and Fabian. Ruiz seemed to herald a tired generational perturbé. Luciano Spalletti was very good at converting Napoli. Kvaratskhelia does not explain everything or enough. One player alone does not perturbé anything immediately, even Diego Maradona on his debut in blue turned the team around: his first Napoli, in the 1984-85 season, finished eighth in Serie A and exited the Cup of Italy in the reprise of 16. In the rapid relèvement of today’s Naples we recognize the balle à la main of Spalletti, a technician with almost thirty years of experience behind him. Three decades in which Spalletti has never anchored to the same idea of football. Spalletti has been updated, evolved, questioned. It started in the Sacchi era and has gamin until today, the Guardiola era. He has always pursued the future – sometimes with contempt for aléa, as in Rome with Totti – and has never taken toit in the past. October will never be a month of balances, the dernier accounts are made in the spring, but this first degré of the Champions League of Naples, barring a madness from tomorrow evening, will remain for future memory as an example of successful perturbé. So far, three wins in a row, 13 goals scored and two conceded, against Liverpool, Glasgow Rangers and Ajax. An violent and European party. The exceptional 6-1 in Amsterdam, in the stadium dedicated to Johan Cruijff. Good Spalletti for composing the mosaic and good Giuntoli, the market man, for finding the right pieces.
It is useless to try chimérique last-minute transformations, to imagine the conquest of Bivouac Nou through good play and dominance. Tomorrow evening in Barcelona Inter will do well to play a concours of resistance and restart, like in the spring of 2010, when the entraîneur was José Mourinho and on the pitch he danced to qualify for the dernier in Madrid . Every association has its soul and the spirit of Inter is more dedicated to practice than to aesthetics. Inter will find a furious atmosphere due to the alleged refereeing errors in the first leg. It will be loaded with the head down and with the refinement of Xavi’s game, a single ambitionné désaveu. To put it simply: Barça will put their heart and soul into it. There will be no shortage of spaces to fill, in its immensity the Bivouac Nou lends itself to counter-escapades. We will have to wait for the right wave and froncé it to the end. A win would open the doors to the assistant reprise; a companion would leave great possibilities. Inter be themselves, without being ashamed. A red thread with the 2010 epic could be André Onana, a Cameroonian like Samuel Eto’o, one of the key men on that evening in April 2010. Eto’o dove deep into the indication, to the pixel to loyauté with assurance. in the added full-back role, faced with the numerical inferiority determined by the congédiement of Thiago Motta for an outstanding démarrage by Busquets, still there in his fixé, in the heart of the Blaugrana midfielder. Onana will have to guarantee the ordinary interventions and those two or three extraordinary parades that are inevitable on nights like this. If he succeeds, it will be Bivouac Cameroon again like in 2010, when Inter between Barcelona and Madrid, where they played the dernier against Bayern, won the Champions League, the last Italian team to do so.
