That was a bit shocking... Amateur mistake. Especially for someone who is supposed to be good on the ball.

Nah, not the first time he has this move but this time it was clean and no foul, he needs to stop doing this falling trick if getting trap, just clear the ball.

Under Conte he was immense. If it wasn't for his magical left foot, I wouldn't mind getting rid of him for a more agile CB.

True to this... most times refs give him a foul even it is not.

Bastoni deserved a yellow card for that fall. Same with the dude that made the ref show Barella a red card, acting should get yellows.

There's no going around it - it's an amateur mistake. I'll give him some benefit of the doubt because the pitch was horrible, everyone was sliding and falling left and right and ball probably behaved in an odd way.

If he had to make such a dumb mistake, then at least it's good that it was in the first CL game with stakes still relatively low. It rattled him badly, I doubt he will do it again.

But to be fair to him, he really didn't have a lot of options where to pas the ball except for maybe Asllani if he released it as soon as he got it.

That Sommer pass wasn't really a perfect pass either.

The only thing he could've done is hoof the ball forward, he didn't, they scored, that's it. He'll survive.

Terrible decision in a horrible situation. Let's hope the entire team recovers and that Bastoni isn't too hung on this one.

Tactically we failed because the regista was not registing

Against Empoli, I saw this dude cleared the ball right away with no options :yao:
Thing is he smirked after, like that sense of humor.

Anyway like I said that was the only and first time he did an error that lead directly to a goal in my memory, so I will even just act like it didn't happen.

Did very good after he woke up, following that long touchline throw in, but c'mon these lapses shouldn't occur

That air defense on Bologna's second goal was something.

The second Bologna goal is a collective cock up. We would never know whether Bastoni/Acerbi instructed something to Pavard and the latter didn't understand. Or if the defence has agreed they should switch in that situation. Still, I suspect Bastoni is the main culprit. He was on Zirkzee and he suddenly switched to the overlapping runner which ran to Pavard's zone.

At first I blamed Pavard, but after watching the replay it seems to me Bastoni is the culprit. He's with the striker, Pavard and Acerbi runs to cover the 2 Bologna players that entered our zone, then Bastoni suddenly leave his position to come to Pavard side, who try to block the shoot.

There were series of wrong decisions made in that play. Bastoni running to cover for Acerbi, leaving his guy alone. Acerbi AND Pavard reacts to that, both running to cover Bastoni's flank. Then Bastoni realizes Pavard's flank is free so he attemps to cover that (as Zirkzee is back towards our goal at that point). So at that point it's a free shot from the edge of the box. But what is Sommer doing? Did Pavard's block attempt deceived him this much? He didn't try to make the attempt, meaning it was way too late when he saw the ball or he was already doing some prediction in his head and it went the other way, so he was way too late again?

There's still something to be rehearsed with that back trio, you can't triple one guy and then scramble from there, it's gonna be a mess after that as the attacker didn't even do some fancy shit, apart from that first fake shot/pass attempt.

i wont be surprised if Inzaghi will go more for a Pavard-DeVrij-Acerbi line up.

2 Goals conceaded in CL, both are his fault.
The next player to be sold, for sure. It's weird, because he ended last season and started this one as a boss, but he isn't being as good in defence
