You guys think peresic can take barellas position?

Maybe shift Hakan to the right and peresic with de Marco cover salah
I think, with the most upmost respect, a terrible idea. I think salah destroys Di Marco. Perisic in the middle I don't hate but I think pero has to be lwb. Or maybe even darmian. Id trust him more on salah

I'm more interested in what bastoni does. Does he attack like he usually does? He adds so much to our game but thats so risky.

Yea…I just don’t want to see any of gags or Vidal.

But yea Di Marco would have a hard time against salah.

This is a big game, we need big game players. Barella's missing, so we need Vidal to have a good game. He can do it, if he doesn't go crazy.

Also we need Sanchez to start this one.

Sanchez - Martinez
Perisic - Calhanoglu - Brozovic - Vidal - Darmian
Bastoni - De Vrij - Skriniar
Handanovic​

I think Vidal will play instead of Barella, and I have confidence he can put up a good performance for us.

Even if Vidal starts and plays well, he doesn't have 90 minutes in his legs so we're going to be seeing one of the gruesome twosome at some point in the match

It’ll have to be Gagsy after Vidal runs out of gas

When do we know how long Barella's suspension will be?

It isn't just Salah. It's also TAA. We definitely need Perisic on the left side. Darmian on the right is a similar case. I don't trust Dumfries against Robertson and Mane.

I agree, that’s our best bet for getting a positive result.

I wouldn't rule out a surprise loan addition for the midfield that could potentially secure a starting spot in this game. But it would depend on Vecino/Sensi departures.

Been thinking a lot about the midfield situation for this match and ironically I feel it might be better to start with one of the retard brothers as opposed to Vidal.

The way I see it, Vidal would be fired up and all that, but his body simply isn't up to it anymore. Despite his tenacity and his best efforts, I feel like Liverpool would just run circles around him, especially in transition, and drag him out of position over and over again. One slightly late challenge gets him booked and from there on he becomes a liability.

Gagliardini on the other hand is more static and less rough than Vidal. He doesn't hurl himself into challenges full pelt nor does he press with as much aggression. There's less chance he'll pick up a booking and if he just screens well and holds his positioning with a degree of discipline, he might act as an obstacle to Liverpool's passing game. Albeit, to the same degree of difficulty of a training cone in a routine drill.

Finally, Vecino would simply be absent from midfield, as he always is, but this might help us in transition. In the rare moments we win back possession and lump a hopeful long ball forward, Vecino could help us by providing another body up front and attacking the Liverpool box. Make no mistake, this is a 99% useless strategy but I am always up for those.

Is it just me that think Liverpool have been declining during this season? They started the season very great but have been bad in recent games. I know they didn't have Salah and Mane against Arsenal but I didn't see them having a descent performance against Chelsea and Tottenham with them. Too bad we don't have Barella in first leg...

I got a feeling Inzaghi prepare the team well to handle Salah and Mane on the wings. My biggest concerns are who is gonna replace Barella in the first team, and how our strikers finishing will be on both nights.

We are not gonna progress if we don't take advantage of our goal scoring opportunities. This tie won't be like many other fixtures where we make 20 shots, 10 of them being off target and 8 of them being shot direcrly at the GK and we still manage to win. We need to take the most out of the chances we make, or our chance of progression will be close to zero.

No, I don‘t get it either. It’s ridiculous.
If people really knew about this shit and didn't just follow useless hype, they'd know that the best songs are with Lazio and several German clubs.
But Lazio, damn, that's like 3 beautiful anthem like songs.
