Took off in a flash on Marchese’s shot in the first half and then one simple release to punch the ball over Legrotagglie in the area from a right cross.
Another performance worthy of… the national team. It was up to him to solve the most intricate situations just a few steps from the white lines. Then he also hit the post…
In the first half, he was acting as the launching pad for the forwards, showing soft feet and vision of play. Then the situation changed and he only cared about Bergessio.
Juan Jesus: 6
He must guard the area where Catania were less dangerous. Barrientos could not break through and Pablo Alvarez didn’t push too much. And so he played the game without being extraordinary.
He thought that he could be more involved in the attack on the wing but instead, after 20 minutes, he found himself on the left chasing a quick Gomez. An essential sacrifice for tactical balance.
Showed the rustiness of the long period of inactivity. Always looking for immediate support and running to cover as long as he can still breath but did not have the quality to become the focal point of the midfield.
Brought vigor to the team.
The assist for Cassano was a masterpiece of idea and execution. It was also him who crossed for Ranocchia who then hit the post. We’re wondering why Strama does not see him as a playmaker.
A little bit high on the left, then as right back, same determination, same ability to slip into spaces. Eternal youth and enthusiasm.
Before his goal, he played with tactical intelligence and liveliness. At the end, a goal that is worthy of a standing ovation.
Started to play in the second half thanks to being in good condition. Provided timely and accurate passes to Alvarez and Palacio.
With him in the midfield instead of the “defender” Obi, the team turned itself into a 4-4-2 because Zanetti knows how to make the best of the wing. The midfield then also become more rational.
He just blew two chances. First was formed by his good dribbling, the second was on perfect pass of Milito. Start practicing with the right foot no?
Playmaking and goals: he is the soul and also the top scorer of a team that strongly wanted him and the one that is in his heart. The next challenge is to hold for 90 minutes.
Was able to transform tactics correctly between the two halves. Now he must find a… Pirlo who can support the vibrant trident that we all saw at work yesterday.
Fourth victory consecutively and with a spectacular trident.
