The indications from the Berlusconi Trophy with Monza: Ramsey in front of the defense lasts a while without shining but Allegri is counting on it, playing on both sides De Sciglio confirms why Juve is thinking of keeping him
Many big players still out, between ailments and the return from the national teams, a team that at the second exit can only be a construction site still open and necessarily partial indications with the staff available. But also on an individual level the 2-1 over Monza brought different indications to Juventus.
The only big player in front, he takes on all the weight of the attack by himself and does it with his best virtues, even in the football of (late) July: dynamism, energy, movement. Great race for the moment of the season, he cuts from one side of the field to the other and also takes a piece of the game from the central point: revival of the Parma times not seeing him for fun in yet another different role but valuable ability to respond to necessity of the day. It is not his job at the moment, but the goal is the well-deserved icing of a cover man’s evening.
In small doses it shows insertion, winning pressure in the reconquest phase, shot from outside. His strength has always been the flashes more than continuity but with Monza he holds the field for almost 70 minutes and does even better in the second half, he grows over distance (also in confidence, making the touches go up) and this is also news . On his physical condition already reliable.
It will weigh the right seasonally, but the hungry eyes in football withdrawal have lit up to see the brilliance of Matias Soulé, with his flair for aiming at the opponent and creating the ball and chain, and the personality of Filippo Ranocchia, who already knew to be on the launching pad regardless of the goal scored and the physical exuberance together with the tactical intelligence revealed with the insertions and the interdiction: at stake there is the concrete possibility of conquering the Allegri’s call to the first team.
THE LESS YOUNG
Behind them, the readiness of Szczesny after only three minutes of the season, the tranquility of De Ligt at the first release and the double-sided version of De Sciglio, initially uncertain but then punctual in closing and active with the ball, double-sided especially for the double soul from the right side in the first half and left in the second that plays in favor of his chances of permanence. And the physical condition is also news: 81 minutes on the pitch for the former Rossoneri.
Ready, go and immediately uncertainty due to a misunderstanding of Merih Demiral with De Ligt saved in the Szczesny parade. Not a certainty in the setting phase, the Turkish plays with his usual muscular personality, but when the ball ends up in his side there is that sinister feeling that an error is always around the corner. Nothing new, in light of the undoubted potential, except that today he is a featured player.
Aaron Ramsey does not demerit in his new position as director in front of the defense, or rather: he holds the position but is not seen as much in the setting phase. It could have been an opportunity to send a signal to Pjanic and say that Allegri has the solution in that position at home, seeing him come out already in the middle of the game to make room for Fagioli does not seem like an investiture in the role. But never stop at appearances because Allegri at the end of the game throws it there with a certain insistence: “I think Aaron in front of the defense can become an important player”.
