Here we go, first game of the season !!!
Cuchu injured, and with Sneijder flight still delayed to Milano, it is interesting how will Jose play versus Bari.
First game of a season, so he could be quite carefull, otherwise we might see 4-4-2, or 4-2-4 so to speak.
In place of Cuchu there could be Dejan. I have to see Bahrain game, I don't know what Beppe was talking about that Vieira played in Cuchus position. This would be certainly the first time, while Dejan played many times there. If Vieira indeed played there(and did well as Beppe said), than we could see rombo in midfield containing Vieira, Muntari, Motta and Dejan on the tip, with Milito and Eto'o upfront.
If Dejan will play in Cuchus postion instead, we could probably see 4-3-3, with Mario/Quaresma completing the three up front.
For the deffense, there is probably the only question who will partner Lucio, will it be Samuel or Chivu. Hard to pick, as both were very very good in centre of deffense, but Cristian might have a little edge as he played more in pre-season.
On the sides will undoubtly be Javier and Maicon. It is a great relief, that sides of deffense will be Javiers main position this year. It was really damaging the team to play Javier still in the midfield.
Anyways, I think it will be "save" variant with:
Julio; Javier Chivu Lucio Maicon; Vieira; Muntari Motta; Stankovic; Milito Eto'o
ps. Can't believe I made the topic, before anyone else did
