Can 3-5-2 save Juventus?

The Livorno coach intends to confirm the level published against Paris Saint-Germain also in the championship match against Salernitana on Sunday.

The first half to forget and the second half to start over. Juventus striker Max Allegri restored 3-5-2 In the last Champions League match he lost 2-1 against Paris Saint-Germain And it seems that the turmoil in the squad satisfied the Juventus coach. In the Sunday match against Salernitana Therefore, Allegri will propose the same model again. Of course, in Leghorn’s pragmatic mind, there is little room for considerations in units: whether it’s 4-3-3, 4-3-1-2 or 3-5-2, the ball is round, it must be well managed and “soccer is simple.” “. However, the change in structure greatly affects the choices available to individuals and the management of the dispensary. The absence of Pogba, Di Maria and Kiza It led to 3-5-2 as the only redemption, to treat the start of the season which has so far given few high notes.

It’s right doubts That new (old) idea of ​​3-5-2 is settling in: in the first league matches, Juventus rediscovered itself without key elements in the middle of the pitch, forcing themselves to take a lot of wait-and-see approach. Needless to say, 3-5-2, at this moment, is the unit that ensures greater stability In a weak and dilapidated center of gravity. The need for more grip and weight along the midfield belt was clearly demonstrated in the European debut against the Parisian barge. Walls / Locatelli Supporting items in the control room, along with a variety of ductile mezzas such as Rabiot, Mckennie, and the Jolly Miretti. But it was the summer market above all that made their expenses meet 3-5-2Landing in all areas like the wing costic, which is ideal for covering offensive and defensive missions without ensuring a pure winged size, has turned the scales towards this unit. Cuadrado, on the other hand, also has all the qualifications to adapt: ​​Sarri renamed him as a full-back, while Allegri has always considered him a multi-level player on the wing.

In front of us too Coexistence between Vlahovic and Milik It turned out to be a panacea for the Bianconeri. Starting from the moment of pole formation he started off the right foot in the tournament and proved to be more than capable of connecting the match between divisions. In this way, 3-5-2 can feed Vlahovic with more balls, and the Serb, in turn, can count on an excellent teacher. Allegri himself admitted: in the area, Milik has more “career” than the Serbian, who has not yet learned to manage the nerves under the goal. And with the return Maria To move between midfield and attack, the current formation shouldn’t change much.

Returning to 3-5-2 is equivalent to the characteristics of the main parts of the defense: if we think about it, it is necessary Bremer He’s already accustomed to the three-way line from Toro, while Bonucci retains the experience of the Contian era and the early delight period. At that time, the BBC controlled the defense and Tevez carried out the attack. The midfield boasted names of the caliber of Pirlo, Marchisio, Vidal and Pogba. Today the transition to 3-5-2 is dictated mainly by the scarcity of raw materials. Previously it was a whim, today it is a necessity. Not an encouraging hypothesis to heal arid Juve in spirit and intent.
