I honestly don't know shit about Basel or Shahtar, but we shouldn't underestimate whoever we play against.
I think that, honestly, we've reached that level when Gagliardini just needs to sit out. We need Eriksen from minute one. Seriously, we need to score, and Sanchez is maybe injured and Lautaro creates chances, but still was far away from scoring.
That fluidity from midfield to upfront we need in order to win big games will not make do with only Barella and Brozo (who is disappointing lately IMO), and certainly not with Gaglia.
I hope we show Shakhtar/Basel the same respect we showed Leverkusen. This is a potential banana skin, the exact type of match we’ve struggled with in recent seasons. Full concentration on winning this match, if you win then you deserve the final and can sorry about if it’s Man Utd, Sevilla, Wolves.
I only saw part of Shaktar's game today as was switching between games, but from what I saw Shaktar looked a better side than Leverkusen. Its never easy to play a "champion" side of Eastern Europe, these guys believe they can win any game.
This is going to be two tough, closely contested semi finals. I hope we win, don't care who wins the other one.
