Draw is ok in my eyes. Jube have tough schedule ahead. Napoli, Atalanta, Lazio, Fiorentina, Milan, Torino, Roma, Bologna.
They don't look like a team, who can win all of those matches.
We can afford some rotation again, because our next two features are tricky. Genoa and Bologna. We already lost points there earlier.

No rotation for this game. Genoa game we can rotate.

Hoping for Juve to underperform is a mistake. They can certainly handle current form Napoli, Atalanta, Torino, Roma, Genoa, Fiorentina and Lazio. Milan and Bologna 50/50. Remember, they don't have CL or EL.

If Sommer isn't back for this one, I don't expect a win and I don't mind a draw either. We have enough of a point cushion that a draw against a hot Atalanta team won't break this team.

Actually under rotation I meant only Frattesi for Mkhitaryan. We are forced to play Asllani and Arnautivic instead of Hakan and Thuram anyway. I want to see
Sommer
Pavard - SDV - Bastoni
Dumfries - Frattesi - Asllani - Barella - Dimarco
Arna - Lautaro.

Of course you do. You know why Inzaghi took Miki right away after a yellow? Firstly, he always does that, but he made sure he won't get another yellow and miss Atalanta game. Your position is mind boggling. You are willing to draw an important game at home, so just Miki will not play. Don't get disappointed again, Miki starts. Do you want to bet money on it?

with all the injuries I'd be fine with a draw here, as long as we beat Genoa next... These next 4 games, Atalanta, Genoa, Bololgna, Napoli are pretty tricky, especially cause of the Atletico game and there won't be much rest. I would not be surprised if we manage to win one and get 3 draws here. Even tho 2 wins and 2 draws are more realistic.

Hot? Did you see them play against Milan today?

Gasperini will hype them up. We had a few bad games this season too, that doesn't mean we aren't a good, in form team

Haha. I forget that you somehow decided that I'm some kind of a Mkhitaryan hater.
Sorry to disappoint you, but my reason is completely different.
I want Frattesi starts for two reasons. First one is to use the momentum after his positive performance vs Lecce, and the second one is, because Mkhitaryan played a lot lately and he looks out of gas. Especially against Atletico and Lecce, where.he wasn't convincing.
Atalanta is exactly the type of a game, where Inzaghi could afford to rest him.

But he won't rest him. Watch.

It’s a tricky game for sure, especially due to injuries on those key players.

A draw would all in all be fine, but obviously getting 12p clear of Juve should not be underestimated.

Miki could use some rest for sure, regardless of whether he start or not he can’t or rather should not play full time.
