    Alright, I'll make this simple. KevinB's defense is not very good, and mine is excellent. Brozovic and Biglia are both adequate defenders at best, particularly Biglia who is more of a regista than a box to box DM. When you factor in Pogba's laziness and lack of willingness to track back, you get a midfield that is going to be overrun by a much more hard working and equally talented midfield trio which I possess. Peres is not a strong defensive fullback and will struggle to create anything against the much better defender Sandro. KevinB's inability to hold the ball in the midfield will lead to a counter-attacking strategy being deployed by him, which will fail against my superior defensive side. Anderson and Il Faraone are pacey players with good dribbling, but are not strong finishers. His team is going to be over reliant on Bacca to bag goals. Pogba will have to be contained by Marchisio's high work rate and Badelj's physicality.

    Attacking wise, expect Mertens and Sandro to run wild down KevinB's weak right flank where there isn't a single above average defender. Jorginho will control a possession based attack focused distributing the ball to Salah and Mertens cutting in against KevinB's weaker fullbacks. Mandzukic will likely be dueling directly with Chiellini and attempt to hold-up play and win aerial duels.

    My keeper is also far more experienced in big games FWIW.

    True, ADRossi's defense is strong. But I'm sure my attack can fuck em up. He mentions that my strikers aren't good finishers, yet in total they scored more. Mandzukic and Mertens waste a lot more chances. And tbh, Felipe Anderson had a bad season and El Shaarawy only came in the winter mercato. So those points are invalid.

    How is my midfield unable to keep the ball? With ball loving players such as Biglia, Bro and Pogba? Nah. They'll keep the ball good in possession. Besides, equally talented midfield?

    Pogba >>> Jorginho
    Bro < Marchisio
    Biglia > Badelj

    Your midfield may work hard, but it lacks magic. There's no one who brings the x factor in your midfield. Your offensive play will just be a long ball to Mandzukic who will head it to your pacey wings. But both Peres as Ghoulam won't have much issues with that. And Chiellini will win a lot against Mandzukic

    Besides, even if I won't get to your box, Anderson, Pogba, Bro, Bacca and El Shaarawy all can shoot from distance.

    This will be a hard battle, but my midfield brings more magic, and that's where the key will be.

    Mandzukic had the highest goals per shots ratio in the league behind Icardi last season. Why do people keep calling him a bad finisher?

    And Bacca is rarely a threat outside the box:

    I voted for ADRossi. I feel KevinB's side is extremely well rounded for the most part, but his attack is going to struggle to breakdown a side with so many solid defensive players. Bacca is an amazing player for the counterattack, as is Anderson, but it will be KevinB's side who will have most of the possession, and when they don't have possession I feel the tactical intelligence of ADR's team will be good enough to stifle any counters. Pogba is clearly the X-factor, but I can imagine him getting frustrated and getting out of position and I feel Salah would take advantage of this.

    1-0. Mandzukic goal from a Salah assist. Disappointed how the draw has worked out. Much like the Euros one side of the draw has been far more stacked than the other. KevinB's side easily beats both sides in the other semi. Although, I thought my side was easily one of the strongest teams and apparently I was very wrong.

    You are winning by one vote ADRossi, maybe time for the final?
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
