MILAN, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Milan is looking for great countermeasures to go and sink Napoli in the big way.
Milan, Gazzetta: “Pioli focuses on CdK to attack Spalletti”
“Total Tonali What is certain is that Tonali will be at work, and it is a detail that is anything but trivial. Because his movements in Pioli’s 4-2-3-1 are constantly evolving, just like his position on the pitch. Napoli again helps to frame Sandro’s specific weight in the maneuver: in the success of Maradona who launched the Rossoneri at the top of the standings alone, last March, Tonali played from the back screen in front of the defense, while Kessie and Krunic attacked the bearers of blue ball later, in an unusual 4-1-4-1 “.
“It was the move with which the strategist Pioli wrapped Spalletti (never beaten until then) and froze Napoli, winning three fundamental points for the championship race. Another stage, another move by Tonali: in Verona Pioli placed him very high, almost close to the center forward, and the former Brescia signed a brace… as a forward. In Milan with the Scudetto on the shirt, Tonali’s journey is crossing new regions, such as the left lane towards which he often widens, to carve out spaces for the striker and full-back and “create numerical superiority on the wing”, as Pioli says. It could also happen against Napoli. Tonali “wide” but also assaulting, to get up almost in line with De Ketelaere and with Bennacer backward to guard: the sleight of hand succeeded in Maradona against a Napoli lined up with the 4-2-3-1. And with the three-man midfield? “
