    he's still a revolving door defensively but not only did he not make any contact with the player but he got the ball too

    Hahaha you’re exactly right. Certainly a winnable match but not exactly the ideal draw given the other possibilities.

    The other and more pressing issue is that the match is scheduled for the day after the international break ends which means none of the SA players would be back in time for it. Apparently the club is going to request that the Brazilian FA release those players early so that they’re able to travel back and train/be available for the match. No Vini, Casemiro, Militao, Rodrygo or Valverde would make things much more difficult for sure.

    apparently they've already declined the request, which is even more ridiculous when you consider that they've already qualified for the WC

    still early and they’re creating good chances but I’m afraid this is turning into another dominating performance where they just have 15+ shots but can’t finish and find the net

    Benzema's injury isn't thought to be serious and while he might sit out the CdR match against Bilbao he's expected to be ready for PSG the following week

    Asensio as a false 9? I get that Carlo loves the Brazilians (or hates Jovic and Hazard) but I still can't believe he's starting Vini, Case & Militao like 24 hours after they returned from the international break

    also Alaba at LB and Nacho in the middle which is a bit of a surprise

    edit: but definitely the right call given the speed of Inaki & Nico down that right flank

    incredibly poor across the board

    disappointing effort all around starting with Carlo's selection & tactics imo

    Isco as a false 9?

    How much does Carlo hate Hazard and Jovic? And why keep them around if they’re not even going to play when the starters are unavailable?

    I thought I hated Hazard…not near what Carlo thinks of him obviously.

    They need three points today

    At least they’re actually creating chances and getting shots on goal. Just need to keep the pressure up and be mindful of the acres of space Marcelo’s leaving down the left flank so they’re not countered

    also he’s still young but Camavinga is not a holding mid nor is he a replacement for Casemiro. He’s just not and his ability is wasted there.

    what a ridiculous bullshit whistle and awful officiating

    he was clearly on and and it clearly wasn’t a foul and his in alone on goal, why the fuck wouldn’t you let that play and then review it like the rules call for?

    Marcelo just isn’t a first team player anymore. Full stop. Carlo has to bring on Nacho and move Alaba to the left because Marcelo offers literally nothing in defense.

    Not like that’s the only issue because they’re a mess all over the field and the front three are totally disconnected unless Vini comes back to the edge of his own box to receive the ball.
