Slightly more difficult game than AC Merda. 1-3 for us.

Along with Benfica away, this will probably be our toughest fixture in the group. A draw or even loss wouldn’t be catastrophic but 3 points right off would make everything else a bit easier in terms of progressing.

Start Asllani, he deserves that chance to prove himself.

Wtf are you talking about?
If you refer to the Circo Internazionale, this was the banner the Milan ultras made for the Saturday´s derby (only to then witness a Circo Milanista)

You guys seem to have a lot of faith on Asllani… My feeling was that we haven’t seen enough of him to make that judgment. Maybe his international form?
Not a bit worry for his attacking game, but his defensive one is the thing that I have a bit concern.
Also remember he has been under Inzaghi for a year, should understand better the role and expectation a lot better, about time for he to play some games, we will see.

So much to look forward in this game.

FFS, we have EMPOLI in a few days, not Napoli. Don't start Arnautović in this game.

I'm not a big fan of getting the toughest game (on paper) in our group on the first matchday, but it's still important to get off on a good foot, even if that's just a draw. Lets not totally outthink ourselves...

I don't get all the doom and gloom from some peeps. I thought the loser mentality would be gone after our CL run last year. Don't underestimate the quality of our bench. We could start all of our bench and be competitive in most matches. We'll take three paints from this match. Just relax and enjoy.

I believe we can win, but it will be a hard fought win. All teams in our group, especially Benfica, will try everything to make us suffer.

Hopefully Real Sociedad shit themselves like Newcastle did yesterday

It will be a safe assumption that Asllani will start from the beginning and he will have a disastrous game. Inzaghi will sub him on the half time, and he will get no more minutes till the winter break, where he'll be sold for like 5 mln to some midtable Serie A club. Next season, Asllani will become their star, and he will be sold to Milan or Jube, where he will retire as a club legend.

It's the norm here. Some are just like that. Some are just used to doom and glooming. Some do it for the jinxing BS. I can tolerate it to some extend, but those who overdo it go to my ignore list.

That's interesting. I don't expect anything from Arnautović, but Carlos Augusto getting his first start in CL is special. Hopefully he shows up big time

I like the lineup, got way more than I hope for, let's make it count.
Looks like we will physical them out in the attack apartment (Dumfries, Carlos, Arnna) and our CBs are our playmaker, direct from the back, muscle them out in the front, balancing it out in the midfield.

If people still don't see how ballsy Inzaghi is, I don't know what to say.
Also it is not guts with no brains. Like some people are fearless cause they lack of awareness, courage is knowing the risk and do it.
