Swansea made a fantastic start. Their first Europa game and won 3-0 away to Valencia and with 65% possession. That's a fantastic achievement that too for a PL club against La Liga club.

Pretty sure Valencia went down to 10 men at around the 10th minute or so. Still a great result but I doubt they would do that to an 11 man Valencia.

Lazio :palm:

And it's not like they don't try or play with their second team, quite the contrary.

Oh and, Spurs have such a great depth. Sandros fit again, he is such a beast. Great defensive movement and can bring the ball forward as well.

Two assists! He clearly looked a little weak though, so he probably needs to bulk up a bit. Lazio did well to come back and draw the game, but in reality they're a far more talented side so I see it as points lost


Also, all those people who were saying that we should be after Biglia should punch themselves in the face for pure stupidity. What an average as fuck player he is, and that's on a good day.

It's a useless competition. I wouldn't be upset if they did away with it honestly. Maybe 2 or 3 good games a year in the whole comp. maybe champions league guaranteed groups stage placement will spark some interest.

Dylan
03 Oct 13, 20:35
Unless it's like 2/3 of the Semi-Finalists get a place in CL then it's useless. I know that without it then many teams wouldn't have much motivation to improve. If they know that they're comfortable midtable then they know they don't have a chance of top 4 or 3 so they can just relax.

Still, what's the big difference between UEFA Cup and Europa League? Wasn't there suppose to be a change.

Perea was the worst of our U20 strikers just really tall. Lacks speeds, finishing, balls and a winners mentality. He is still young hope he fixes his issues or is made into a CM or ATM and can be a great player.

As for Lazio I think they used a mixed team tho I am shocked by the 3 goals they got scored on them. Really pathetic.

As for Biglia ....... haha man he is an Argie.... you know everyone here automatically thinks he is godlike.

They didnt. Except those injured players, but its not like they rested them, they were injured :D otherwise they played with their best 11 currently, Candreva, Lulic, Andreson, Hernanes, they all played.

Wow, Lazio have been dissapointing in my eyes for sure.

Pajo, you win. They are definitely below us atm tbh, considering the relatively poor quality of their performances, especially on a defensive scale.

And KevinB was right; Biglia is an overrated piece of shit.

Nevertheless, Perea will be an exciting prospect to watch in the future.

You win about Roma tho. It all depends on form anyway, Romas in great form, we are in decent, and Lazio will bounce back. Not top3 contender, but will get better. While roma will drop some points and will have drop in form eventually. My 2 cents.

If Juve drop down to Europa league it'd be interesting to see an all Italian final. It'd definitely help with our coefficient points.

actually, getting trough the group stages earns so many points (5) that it could even be better than reaching EL finals

Caecuban

Didn't know that, thanks.

The actual UEFA coefficient criteria is really weird. What counts the most is winning at the group stage (2 points for a win and 1 for a draw) and getting trough the group stages (5 points but only for CL). Strangely, winning the CL will not be as good as, for instance, getting lots of wins at group stage.

If a team manages to go trough the CL group stages every year with a reasonable win ratio, this team is almost guaranteed to remain seeded in the first pot.

Participating in the CL round of 16 is worth 5 points but being in the final is only 1. That's fucked, I wonder who came up with that.

Now I really wish we could have made Europa League. Since Mazzari always plays second fiddle team in EL, it would have given a chance to see some of our talents, before writing them off. Not only that, but wins in EL would've increased our co-efficient. We're still the only Italian team that can get ranked #1 in UCL.

And what would be better than to win the competition in Juve's stadium.

So Serie A is going to have four quality sides in the Europa league knock out stages. I hope all of them treat it with respect. Napoli, Juve, and Fiorentina should all be treating it as a way to increase their own coefficients ratings in order to not get Napoli like groups when they qualify for the CL

Teams left:
Seeded
AZ Alkmaar, FC Basel 1893*, SL Benfica*, Eintracht Frankfurt, ACF Fiorentina, KRC Genk, PFC Ludogorets Razgrad, Olympique Lyonnais, SSC Napoli*, FC Rubin Kazan, FC Salzburg, Sevilla FC, FC Shakhtar Donetsk*, Tottenham Hotspur FC, Trabzonspor AŞ, Valencia CF.
Unseeded
AFC Ajax*, FC Anji Makhachkala, Real Betis Balompié, FC Chornomorets Odesa, FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk, FC Dynamo Kyiv, Esbjerg fB, Juventus*, SS Lazio, Maccabi Tel-Aviv FC, NK Maribor, PAOK FC, FC Porto*, FC Slovan Liberec, Swansea City AFC, FC Viktoria Plzeň*.

I think Lazio would need to face Genk to have a decent chance of progressing. Napoli and the Viola would want to avoid Ajax, Porto, or a trip to Russia/Ukraine, but in reality I say that both should have a decent chance of beating any of those teams. Juve on paper are the best team left in the compeition along with Spurs. It'd be embarrassing if they didn't win or come very close.

He played 4-3-3 with Pirlo against Madrid it was perfect... Italy play with Pirlo in 4-3-1-2 it's perfect as long he's flanked by 2 box to box players.

I didn't watch the game, but heard he was struggling with 3-5-2 and when he went to 4-3-3 they looked way better. From what I heard...

They need wingers (at least wide attacking players) to stretch play.

Napoli did good, but I'm surprised Benitez is even using this many starters tbh. If he doesnt make CL next season he's gone.

Reja already said some bullshit last week about how "Serie A is a serious championship and thus we need to be fully fit for our league matches" says everything we need to know about him. If he had been their coach all year Lazio wouldn't have made it out of the group stages.

We are playing very poorly, specially on the defense, thatīs why Iīm not confident about tonights game.

We switched coach just a week ago for the coach of the B team that will stay until the end of the season, he plays tacticaly like weīve been playing since forever, classic 4-3-3 with a 6 deep between the defense and the midfielders and 2 wingers wide open, not like our former coach who tried a different approach and destoyed our midfield and after that our defense. Itīs still unknown how the team is after the change, we only played one match after that against a minor team and didnīt perform that well, the team has lost a lot of confidence in the last weeks.

Our squad is a lot weeker after we lost players like James and Lucho but specially Moutinho, even more because the players we bought to replace them are failing to meet the expectations, We are in march and still donīt have a solid starting 11 thatīs how bad we are, we have tried so many different sets of players on the midfield that I canīt even tell whoīs in better shape to start this game.

Plus, for Italy to have a chance of getting their spot back it needs it's teams to be winning both legs of their matches.

Shaun you give too much of a fuck dude. This team beat this team, who beat this other team, who was supposed to beat this team, but it tied this team from that league, in that league.

Next year when EL winner gets CL spot, that's when teams will take it seriously, and Serie A will slowly win coefficients back. It's all within a 5 year period anyhow, so the 5th year gets discarded. Bundesliga teams 3/4 will keep playing like crap in CL, and that'll benefit us too.

As long Udinese doesn't win any European spot, everything is fine.

Giovinco is giving Rube so much attacking width that they were lacking this CL campaign. They did better last time, simply because Giovinco stretched play. Tevez/Lorrente is extremely narrow. At Trabzonspor as well he helped them greatly.

Napoli got a good result, considering who was playing. A 1-0 Porto win will be a piece of cake to overcome at San Paolo. Zapate missed at the end; Pipa would've done the job.

Rubentus with odds at 1.15 tied. Kudos to Fiorentina for getting the goal.

Totenham is in their usual retard mode, where they only win away.

Valencia has it easy and will get raped past Razgrad.

Nice to see Lyon overcome that 0-1 into 4-1 (should've bet in live game, after the goal, at 2.5)

The real surprise for me was Betis. Sevilla is a much better team and I have no idea how they managed to loose 0-2. Interesting trivia: the second goal of Betis was scored by Salva Sevilla (in italian/old spanish/dead latin it means "save sevilla").

The quality isnīt great because I took the pics with my phone. Anyway here they are, I took one of fat Rafa just for fapuccino but it was completely blurred.

About the game if anyone follows the thread about the portuguese league youīd likely spot a couple of things that Iīve been criticizing about Porto this season, and yesterday we made the best our game in at least 2 months.
This coach returned to our classical midfield and now we see that the midfield works and the players are well positioned not like the former coach when the midfield didnīt work at all.

Still itīs painful to watch how the team quality dropped in the last 3/4 years, if on the league the differences fades away on european matches itīs evident, it wasnīt a coincidence that this was only our first win at home this european season, even though we were on a "easy" group on the CL.

The game ended 1-0 but both defenses made so many errors that it could ended 3-2 with no problem, Napoles had 3/4 clear chances, we had 4/5.

Playing at home we tried to take advantage of that factor and assumed the game , the 1st half Napoles didnīt do that much and seemed confortable giving us the ball and sitting back expecting to put a ball through our defense on one of our many lost balls in the midfield, Fernando and Defour were the ones to blame most of the time, both did a good game but lost too many balls.

During the 2nd half Napoles were the better team, we ended up scoring 1-0 when they were this close to score for 2 time in 5ī.
Porto continued to made awful defensive mistakes, Mangala and Alex Sandro (who was really good on the 1st half) were the worse of the back 4.
Alex Sandro is the kind of LB that is good on the attack but average on the defense, when it comes to crosses he tends to come too close to the CBs and leaves a lot of space on the second post for players to come, we almost conceded a goal due to this and conceded several goals this season because of that, I donīt know why our coaches didnīt fixed this already because itīs evident to anyone.
Mangala was superb last season but this season is well bellow what was expected from him, last night he made 4 rookie mistakes that almost costed us goals, I donīt want to be too hard on him because his worst performances came after his father died, that was only last month, Iīm sure thatīs one of the reasons but it canīt explain the whole thing.

Quaresma was Quaresma he wants to make it to the WC but I think he should have though of that not 6 months before the deadline so I donīt think heīll make it, certainly not playing like he played on the 2nd half.

Our attack lacks player like Lisandro, Hulk, James, Falcao and other this season we fall years ago from the offensive power he had before, Varela is just an Ok player, reliable but thatīs about it, Quaresma is 30 and Jackson this season is far from his previous season form, the role our previous coach set for him made him run like crazy without the ball for endless games and now heīs very tired and seems demotivated.

Iīm happy Quintero is getting more play time now, this guy has a left foot thatīs so good, I hope we can make it work with him, the club is putting a lot of faith on him, but he needs to work on the defensive process of the game and on his positioning without the ball.

I guess this sums it all.

Tomorrow Porto will play with the defense in even worse shape, Hélton (GK) had a severe injury last game and will be out 6 months, it may also end his career, A. Sandro with a yellow card last match is out as well and also Maicon ended the game against Napoles injured and didnīt play on sunday, he was called but itīs probably just bluff.

So Porto only have 4 defenders for tomorrow available and like I said Maicon isnīt likely to play. I have no idea what our coach will do Maybe Ricardo will play on the left, a right winger that we are trying on our B team to adapt as a RB, a really young player without experience will be a huge gamble, but moving Fernando to that position would weaken our midfield too much.

My guess is

-----------Fabiano
Danilo - Mangala - Reyes - Ricardo
-----------Fernando
-------Defour------C. Eduardo
Quaresma --- Jackson ---- Varela


This will not be pretty to see...

I like the way Napoli builds up play, its very nice to watch. I think theyre best Italian side at creating chances, But they choke way too much in front of goal. Higuain playing well and then choking, just like he did at Madrid. Napoli choke especially outside of home.

And their defence is all over the place. Ghoulam looks like a good player, he was a nice buy, but their center backs are a joke. There are bottom table teams with better defenders.

Salzburg 1-2 Basel with Salzburg with one more player for 80 minutes and Salzburg missing a ton of chances.

But you're wrong though. With the way that the coefficients work the most current year is always the most important year as it's points will be in play for the next 5 years. If Juve can win the rest of their games Italy's coefficient points total for the season will be decent enough to keep them close to the other top leagues. If they were to get knocked out then Italy will have a huge disadvantage for the next 5 years

So again, you're wrong. Juve's results for the rest of the season will basically decided whether Italy's coefficients for the next 5 years are fucked. Because of right now Italy is about par with Germany for the season.

If Bayern get knocked out without winning a game in the next round and Juve win every game Italy would have a slightly higher average coefficient for the season than Germany.

I went to Lazio forums once, they all wanted to reach Europa League spots, but no one gave a shit about the actual competition itself :awyeah:

The CL spot is definitely going to motivate Italian teams more, it's just I'm worried about sides like Parma and Atalanta who really can't win it, and might just throw it away.

But I think teams like Fiorentina that can win, will go all out for it. I think it's easier to win Europa League than make 3rd spot in Serie tbh...Teams like Atletico Bilbao, Fulham, Porto, Atletico (long time ago), Benfica, have been in the finals... Most of these teams will struggle to make top 3 in Serie A.

P.S. Germany also had Frankfurt that did just as bad as Udinese, but they have 7 teams, so it didn't matter that much.

Dropping behind portugal would be great for the league. 1st it will only be for a year, since portugal record points would disappear after that.

And maybe figc will give a lot higher TV revenue to EL teams, or find ways to incentivize EL.

Antonio Conte sucks. He gotta go back to Bari or Siena or something like that. Even tho Tevez just scored, Juve suck big time. They need a king as a coach: in other words, me. If I were their coach, Juve would already have scored 3 goals against Benfica. But I wouldn't coach these pricks anyway.

Juve sends me offers all day, I already told them to not stalk me but they adore me and want to set up a golden statue of me. Sometimes I wish I wasn't that great but that's life...

Juve are playing like garbage. Forget the team they're facing. They were horrendous in the final third until Giovinco came to provide width.

Definitely not shit. Conservative because of Benfica's pace, but the fact was that Benfica didn't have a shot from the point of their first goal until their second which was unstoppable

Benfica lost three titles in the last games last season so I think they will be much stronger and more ready now. Those kind of things usually makes you want to win even more and motivates like no other things. They were so close last season that they almost could taste the victory. Now they are even hungrier so Jube will have tough battle in Torino.

Listen, I think Juventus with 2 world class wingers, would be the second best team in Europe. Them and Bayern were the top 2 teams with shots on target in CL group stages.

But you can gather every best player in history, and put them in a 3-5-2 and I wouldn't be surprised if they failed to beat Copenhagen too.

The 2 best teams in Europe are Bayern and Real. Look at their wingers.

3-5-2 is a slow tempo formation that only works in slow motion Serie A. Right now, Rube is not even top 10-15 team in Europe. They are playing like garbage.

Well tbh, if you think we were atrocious in CL despite our dominance in Serie A late 2000s, then Juve is even worse. The last decent European campaign that Juve had was reaching the CL final in 02/03. In the past 2 decades, despite their performance in Italy, they have only won 1 Champions League and maybe some worthless European peon competitions. Put it simply, they do have have the DNA to compete in Europe.

This is so pathetic. Rubentus with 2 good wingers could obliterate sides like Benfica. Yet Conte keeps insisting on 3-5-crap. Unless you have complete domination of midfield, this formation is completely useless offensively. Thats why Rube are crap until 70th minute.

Markovic is really dangerous on the attack because of his pace but his lack of pacacity on the defense is leaving a lot of trouble to Maxi who isnīt great. If Salvio is fit he needs to enter at half time.

Benfica started well but the last 15ī they were lucky not to concede. Good thing Juve plays like this the full backs are Benficas weak spot.

Because its fucking pathetic to watch this 19th century football, that will make Serie A drop below Portugal if Benfica isnt knocked out tonight.

With a midfield of Pirlo, Pogba, Vidal you could be a world class team w proper wingers, but yet these retarded Italian morons like Conte and Mazzari decide its easier being a coward.

He can't play 2 up front, with those 3 in midfield so this is what he has to do. It really isn't 19th century football. He's getting the most out of the squad he has.

Also at this stage, Juve are so in control that the wingbacks can push up as far as they want with no worries. So Juve can effectively play a front 4 with players to stop a counter too.

What are you talking about... They are PATHETIC. You cant rely on Asamoah and Lichsteiner to do your attacking for you.

You dont play with front 2, thats the point.

This formation is pathetic, and the reason they struggle against sides like Copenhagen and Tranzonspor.

How is it pathetic? They aren't relying on them to do their attacking, they are providing width.

If there was ever a side that was made to play 3-5-2 it was Juve.

Plus they haven't got fullbacks.

All those sides have wide attacking players something which Juventus doesnt have. The best sides in Europe all play with class wingers. From Bayern to Madrid.

You need creative players to break down defences from the flanks, not Lichsteiners and Asamoahs. You need wingers that can score and assist, and have 2 players providing width instead of just one.

When was the last time a side won CL playing 3-5-2 their entire campaign. How much more proof do you need when they looked a completely diff side playing 4-3-3 against Madrid and 3-5-2 against Copenhagens etc....

Ok bro. Italy is 5 minutes away from falling below Portugal, theyre perfect for it.

W/ 3-5-2 Struggle against Copenhagen, struggle against Galatasaray, struggle against Trabzonspor.

Play 4-3-3 against madrid and dominate them for most of the game. And this a formation they almost never practice with players out of position.

I agree you may need higher attacking wingers to break down top sides, but there's a reason Juve can beat the best sides in Serie A as well using this current system. Litchsteiner has 7 assists which is 2 more than Robben, and only 1 less than Ronaldo.

Conidering only 1 league seems to play 352 then obviously nobody using 352 has won recently, how many people have won playing 5-2-3? Saying these formations doesn't prove anything. Playing Litchsteiner and Asamoah is better than playing wingers of a lower calibre until they can attract them.
