In this indoor game, coach Ronald Koeman should keep the team 3-4-3 privileging the organization of their defensive system and counterattacks, especially through the right side. The experienced Englishman Wayne Rooney is the great highlight of Everton with 2 goals scored. It is important to note that the home team have presented difficulties in terms of defensive transition and aerial play.
