Win in this match will be huge boost to players moral and can change everything, but unfortunately i just cant see us win here, our attacking play too slow and too predictable and our defense play not even exists, not a mention that the two team have completely the opposite moral, rube will come with a lot of confidence and we will come shaking...
I really hope that i will be mistaken....

We need to destroy Sheriff at home tomorrow to build the confidence after the Lazio disaster. I think we need to rest Dzeko against Sheriff so he's refreshed for this match.

Handa, DAmbrosio, DeVrij, Darmian-Dumfries, Vidal, Broz, Gags, DiMarco-Sanchez, Lautaro. Rest Barella and Dzeko for rubemerda.

This game is huge now. A win and it would be a huge mental boost and we would be “back on track.” A draw meh, not ideal we will probably be quite a ways behind Napoli/Milan. A loss and we are in crisis.

Inzaghi please get this game right.
Inzaghi cant get this game right because he doesnt have his Luis Alberto here.

We better score some of the chances we'll create, cause we are conceding ourselves 100% too.

Start Barella, Brozovic, and Vidal in midfield.
Darmian and Perisic on the wing.
Bastoni, De Vrij, Skriniar on defense.
Dzeko Lautaro for attack.

I will sleep If Inzaghi start Gags / Vecino over Vidal in this game.

Vidal needs to start every time he's fit, cause Calha is the third member in the Vecino-Gaglia debate.

So who's the best out of Calha-Gaglia-Vecino?

at least Calha can do Long pass and set piece.

Don't compare him with Lord Gags and Lord Vecino, clearly Hakan have some usefull attribute.

Gagliardinho is one of the best Inter player forever, but only against Genoa teams.

It's probably an unpopular opinion but for me it's Hakan. At least he tracks back and he has good set pieces. Vecino can contribute in attack to an extent with his forward runs but he's a defensive liability and Gagliardini offers absolutely nothing.

It goes without saying Vidal needs to be the definitive starter from now on.

Wut, Vidal have been shit almost every big game and he is the one with "experience". He fucked us over so many times in CL.

This season Vidal is 10 times better than last season Vidal.
Like Vidal said, You will see real Vidal this season.

He play almost perfect every time he on the pitch this season.

3 Keys to Win:

(1) High press has caused us insurmountable suffering this season. Knowing Allegri, he'll instruct his players to focus on 3 players: Skriniar + Brozovic + Bastoni. These 3 are how we transition forward and build our attacking play. As long as Juve neutralises these 3, it doesn't matter how good Vidal/Barella/Dzeko is. We'll run around like mindless chickens. We don't need to change our formation. But Inzaghi can surprise them by having Barella to take on regista duties in the first half. This will confuse the fuck out of them.

(2) Darmian over Dumfries. Don't get me wrong. I like Dumfries. But having Dumfries start would mean he'll lose 2-3 sitters to lower our morale. Then expecting Darmian to do his magic in the 80th minute against Juve would be totally unrealistic. The reverse is much better. Darmian starts so at least our right flank is secure. At the 65th minute, throw Dumfries on to wreck havoc then the rest will go by itself inshallah.

(3) Vidal must stay unprovoked. When he gets hot headed, his tackle will get clumsy. Surely he'd want to "be the guy" after scoring against Sheriff today. But his quality is always there. No need to overdo it. Just stay calm, stay back when Bastoni and Perisic are doing their overlap, then we'll be okay. It's all about tactical discipline.

---

Needless to say all bench players should be on DEFCON3. We will have a lot of cards. We may even end up playing in 10 cos it's Rube. Maybe Barella or De Vrij could suffer from a heavy tackle. But even Radu will need to approach this game as if he's playing the World Cup Final.

Forza Inter!

Maybe a Vidal strike will turnaround our season again?

Martinez - Dzeko
Perisic - Vidal - Brozovic - Barella - Darmian
Bastoni - De Vrij - Skriniar
Handanovic​

With Sanchez coming on for the last 30 minutes.

After watching the game tonight, I am sticking with my suggested line up. This is the team we need to start against Juve.

I actually think there's a lot of things to be worried about heading into this game. I think we still haven't found any groove in our play, there's a lot that looks awkward or just out of place. We also have players who seem to be out of form or lacking the ability they showed last season. On top of that juventus look like they're back on track and can overtake us soon.

So in other words, the essence of what you are trying to say is that we are fucked.

Too many variables need to change for us to get a result from this game and we are very much falling back into old habits in the sense of not knowing how the team is going to perform from game to game.

I saw highlights of the Lazio and Sheriff games. And the reoccurring theme that really stands out is the space our defence concedes and how open and exposed we are at the back.

We all know that Juventus rise to the occasion, especially when they play us. And we also know that for the best part of a decade, we have had an inferiority complex when it comes to playing Juventus.

Last season was the exception. This will go according to script with Juventus getting three points.

If we keep playing we did against Sheriff, Allegri is gonna rape Inzaghi. We gave them so many counters and I'd say only because they are Sheriff (so their player material is not top level), we didn't concede goals from those counters.
