JUVENTUS, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Allegri is really anxious about the form of his team in view of the first championship.
Juventus, Gazzetta: “The bianconeri worry Allegri, little solidity”
“Absences and confusion The signals arrived yesterday are not encouraging: bad defense, midfield without a soul and attack all on the shoulders of Di Maria, the only one who tried to do something. The absence of Pogba weighs but cannot become an alibi. Atletico seem to belong to another category: ball possession, harmony, well-established movements and established schemes, excellent athletic condition “.
“The Spaniards have everything the Bianconeri lack, including a striker who scores. Allegri starts with the usual 4-3-3 without Kean, Cuadrado (still out for a flu virus) and Luca Pellegrini (bruised right knee) and with Soulé left outside, then tries to run for cover by placing Di Maria under the tip and closes with the three-man defense, throwing Gatti (one of the few happy notes) and Rugani inside. Difficult to find something that worked: the Bremer-Bonucci duo are so wrong, Alex Sandro proves once more that a left-back would also be needed, Danilo on the other side does not do better. Step back for Locatelli, who needs a more solid median to be a director ”.
“Double problem The numbers say that in 4 friendlies (we do not count Villar Perosa, unreliable test) Madama collected 8 goals and scored 4. Atletico play with central Witsel due to the absences of Gimenez and Felipe, De Paul and Oblak and Renan Lodi, Correa and Griezmann start on the bench, yet he scores four goals (Cunha’s last) and even misses a penalty (Szczesny saves Joao Felix). Juve is all in the one shot on goal by Miretti, who entered the second half. There is also room for Rabiot, who ends up with a broken head (stitches for the Frenchman). “This defeat can only do us good – said Allegri -. This we are and with Sassuolo we will have to have a different attitude ». There are still 7 days left to run for cover ”.
