Seeing Nico Gonzalez against Atalanta makes me think that he is an updated version of Capaldo. Both have great stamina speed and pressing ability. Nico is better in passing.
Nico and Capaldo are two completely different type of players, the former is a lateral forward/winger/CF(sometimes) while the latter is a holding midfielder/RB (sometimes).
Yeah that was I am trying to mention. Capaldo has that wing back feature. Nico also played in the Left back position earlier. The speed with the ball, pressing and stamina reminds me of these two.
Lautaro seems to be lost his touch again. But 1 goal would make the difference. Yeah he had a rough patch during the copa. But that 1 goal against Bolivia made him come back stronger. And that goal was the easiest he had ever scored. Serie A title race is looking very competitive. But all Italian teams looks very vulnerable in the CL. Tomorrow villareal make life difficult for Juve. That is sure.
2 of Scaloni’s main back ups are on fire:
1. Angel Correa 6 goals in the last 10 despite playing limited minutes.
2. Papu Gomez 4 goals and 2 assist in the last 10.
Scaloni is being very fair here. He gives more minutes to the back ups who are in form.
Except to Angel Correa
Lautaro form is worrying, didnt score in 7 serie a matchrs, in last 10 champions league matches, missed 2 crazy chanches today, one open net quasi.
It’s a worry to be sure but he seems to be one of those players that does better for the NT than the club.
Yes and to be honest I prefer it this way.. to much times in the past our players are superstars for club but not for country..
In 4-2-3-1 Parejo Capoue—Danjuma Lo Celso Chukwueze—Moreno
Marca praise Lo Celso
Yep! “On Saturday, Lo Celso started just behind Arnaut Danjuma in the Villarreal attack. This is the kind of role Lo Celso played with Real Betis, a very attacking role with a little more freedom than he was given at Tottenham”. It’s not just a little more freedom, it’s more than that.
If you look at the heatmap you’ll see that Lo Celso does not just stay static in the penalty box. A second striker position actually affords quite a bit of freedom to move around.
In a 4-4-2 formation, sometimes you see teams play with a support striker, trequartista in Italy or number 10 off of the main target man , in a way it almost becomes a 4-4-1-1 formation as the SS drops off into the hole or even deeper and uses his creative skills to bring others into play around them. Hence Lo Celso in that role is perfectly fine.
Do u think that position will be good for locelso with our national squad? I ask because Messi and di Maria have already been given the license to free roam. We are probably the only team in the world like this…which makes us unique
No, I think in the NT that role is reserved to Messi. When all 3 of Messi, Di Maria and Lo Celso play it usually ends up being a 4-2-3-1 with Messi in the middle, Di Maria on the right and unfortunately that pushes Lo Celso to the left flank where he is not at this best but can still play there.
Like Enganche said no way Lo Celso is getting in that role for us with everyone else there, he will most likely continue playing box to box for us where he excels. Now as long as he’s not playing as a 5 or some bs like that for his club I’m fine, he is still getting minutes anyway which is the most important thing for him to stay fit and sharp. He is versatile and will fit right into our squad regardless.
