JUVENTUS, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Juventus must really go for the Champions League victory to date.
Juventus, Gazzetta: “Here’s how Benfica beats”
“Calm It is clear that the ideal, for Juve, would be to transform those 20 minutes into a whole match. But it is difficult to believe that he is capable of it: basically Allegri’s eleven has never played 90 minutes above the pace in the season, either because of I think or because of physical conditions. Benfica, then, has the technical quality to get out of the pressure, thanks to the two midfielders Enzo Fernandez and Florentino and a little genius named Rafa Silva, the real glue of the team. He knows how to lower himself to receive and help in construction, as well as to move on the entire front of the attack and increase the degree of danger of the Portuguese. He has foot, intelligence and imagination. In the first leg, when Benfica took possession of the game, Juve never took him. How to limit it? Knowing Allegri’s tactical art, a move could be to free him, in the non-possession phase, Manuel Locatelli. The “Loca” does not have the pace in the short of Rafa Silva, but it can annoy him with the physicality, since he is also in considerable growth in condition. At the same time, McKennie and Rabiot must not empty the median, tightening the shirts so as not to leave a hole in the center ”.
