He Naples began the season with an inappropriate level of football that they had been doing in recent years, in which it was the in charge of playing Serie A against Juventus. The streak of bad results did not stop until the ex-Milanese arrived Gennaro Gattuso to bring order. With ‘Rino’ Naples recovered its essence and began to link good performances like that of the first leg against FC Barcelona.
After the stoppage of football due to the pandemic, Naples returned to activity in a great way with eight wins in twelve league games, but more importantly, snatching the Coppa from Juventus after a frenzied finale. However, Italians have shown various weak points that Barça can and will take advantage of it to be in the final phase of the Champions League in Lisbon.
Starting with the defensive zone, those of Setién will have to penalize the insecurity of Ospina under the sticks of Napoli, as well as the possible absences of two central weight as they are Manolas and Maksimovic. On the contrary, Koulibaly’s return Regarding the departure, this is great news for visitors. However, the number of centrals that Gatusso may have to align, with Di Lorenzo from improvised central It seems lazy compared to the Barça forward.
For their part, lateral are the heads and tails of the rear since its clear offensive vocation, despite the fact that it provides them with many alternatives in attack, makes them suffer in fast transitions exposing the team.
In the spinal cord, despite the fact that in the trivot The one Gattuso plays with stands out for quality, so do his defensive deficiencies. The arrival of the German Demme in the winter market has provided Italians with more balance, but the triplet it forms with Fabian and Zielinski tends to overstretch opening spaces that players like Riqui Puig, Sergi Roberto or Arturo Vidal could penalize with their driving.
However, like Napoli suffers on the cons, he also knows how to make them his virtue and proof of this are its players on the attack front. In the absence of validating the physical state of Distinguished, the Italian will be the benchmark in attack together with Mertens and Alley. Three players who are characterized by their electricity when attacking and that they will take advantage of any extra measure that the culé defense takes when it comes to recoil.
Another of the offensive bastions of the Neapolitans passes through their air power, a facet that the azulgranas will have to take care of a lot. Visitors have several options for offensive plays bypassed with footballers of the stature of Manolas (1.89), Koulibaly (1.86), Milik (1.86) and Llorente (1.95). Players who, in addition to their height, are very powerful above and they can change the course of the encounter in any isolated play.
