Did his Chelsea form creep up on him again?


He's been pretty poor for the last few games but still a much better option than Kulu at this point.

He's scored 6 goals in the group stage. Really stupid to bench him. And I am not sure what Pirlo is waiting for to make that sub. Maybe after we concede another I guess.


Looks like it was the right decision because Morata was absolutely terrible the thirty minutes he played Laughing


Morata apart from that finish looked very lively. We atleast looked more direct and better on the counter. Far far better option than putting Kulu as a striker. Kulu is too raw and inexperienced to be a starting a game like this.

Morata is Juve's player of the season so far, integral to the team, and a well know big game player too

Awful decision to keep him out if it wasn't for injury or fitness reasons

I think we would have gotten away with a draw atleast had Morata started this game.

He wasn't injured. Another poor/miscalculated decision from Pirlo to leave him out.

Pirlo:
"Morata wasn’t in good shape before, then was sore at the end too, so we’ll see. Morata hasn’t been at his best since returning from a bout of flu. He was only playing tonight because we needed him."

“He felt ill in the locker room afterwards, he felt faint and needed a lie down, so he is not doing well.”

Plenty if ways we don't go through. Giving a gift like those of last night will see us knocked out. Need to be much more focused and hopefully get some players back for the return leg.

Pirlo crying about the penalty is pretty pathetic. Expected much more class from him but he is turning into another Toupee.

That incident was far from game changing. We were playing pedestrian stuff for majority of the game. Maybe he needs to explain why the players are losing 'focus' so often since he's the one training them day in day out.

I don’t think there’s a manager alive or dead who wouldn’t comment on the dubious penalty call. All Pirlo said is the referee’s explanation for not checking the VAR was strange

I understand the anti-Pirlo agenda but don’t grasp at straws here. Is it Pirlo’s fault that Bentancur can’t make a 5 yard pass 1 minute into the game? Or is that also a preparation issue

The truth is. We are not a good enough team to be gifting a goal at the start of each half and then to come out with any sort of result. We made the game too easy for them and we didn’t deserve a draw but for me it was a penalty

It made 0 sense not to check the penalty with VAR. It's an incident that completely conditions the tie, same for Bentancur's mistake. We can't afford these.

I'd love to see Juve go out, of course, but I feel like this is very probable that you manage it, even in the questionable state you're in.The quality is there, fucking Ronaldo can always just shoot a ball in goal, or two.

Meanwhile, almost all of my matter-of-fact confidence about our Lazio tie has vanished. Our defense is so ridiculously vulnerable.

Since when is Lazio relevant in champions league? they just conceded 3 to Inter, it's not like they are particularly solid

I swear to you, I'm not exaggerating, this could be checked and verified, but in EVERY game over the last 4 months, the opponent was 1v1 before Neuer at least once within the first 5-10 minutes. Usually it happens after 45 seconds-2 minutes.
The ref whistles, games starts, bam, there's an opposition striker alone before Neuer.
It's mind boggling. Every time. It's fucking crazy.

Only Neuer and deer-in-the-headlight stuff from scrub attackers have saved us from embarassment so far.

But even with Neuer, there was a stretch of something like 10 Bundesliga games in a row where we always conceded first. Absolutely crazy.

In the CL, this doesn't fly.

And no, Lazio are not relevant. Usually we have no problems whatsoever with such teams. And that was my stance all season, but this defense man. Doesn't matter, Lazio, Freiburg, Bielefeld, Moscow, Kiel from second division, we are like a sieve.

Probably it's the first time where I'd not be irritated if Juve goes on ( Juve without cups is more dangerous for Scudetto).

With everyone half fit either carrying an injury or having just returned from one, there are few doubts in the lineup and a few 'forced' subs anyway since some players cannot last 90 minutes.

Basically one of Ramsey or McKennie will start but both woll play anyway at some point.
