Partidazo of the champions between Juventus and Tottenham.
After the match between Real Madrid and PSG, I think that this is the most even match of this phase of the cup, and although Juventus is the favorite for its greater background in this competition, Totemham is a team that can not be underestimated.
The Juve comes in a tremendous streak, 11 consecutive victories, and 16 games without a defeat, but the most surprising thing is that he only received 1 goal in those 16 games, which tells us of the tremendous defensive solidity that has always been the basis of this team. With the experienced Chiellini accompanied by Benatia, fast reaction player and good aerial game, and Buffon in the Arc (although Polish Zcezny played in several of these games), to this we add a tireless player as Lichsteiner and a midfield solidarity with Pjanic, Khedira and Matuidi (although the latter is doubt and may be a sensitive low). The only weak point is the left side of Alex Sandro, but not because of his performance, but because he is a player who adds a lot to the attack, and if Juve leaves any space, it will only be at his back. In attack, contrary to what the defeat 7-0 to Sassuolo could indicate, is a team that wins with the right thing, and that the losses of Cuadrado and Dybala have greatly reduced the production in attack, which supplies the volume with the effectiveness del Pipa and Mandzukic, before what Costa and Bernardeschi can produce.
The most powerful item I think Juve has in this key, is the ball, with specialists like Pjanic and Bernardeschi, from any profile, a free kick can translate into a goal, and if it is not a direct shot, the air force Juve is tremendous, and has released more than one game.
On the side of the Totem, we could say that it is the other side of the coin, a team that likes to attack at all times and does not hide even being above the scoreboard. The central back of the Totem with Vertoghen and Davinson, is a defense with a lot of speed, which is hardly overflowed in the one on one, however in the still ball and the centers by the sides usually have problems as well as the aforementioned centrals and Dier, his other players are not so defensive, Dembelé usually plays in the center of the field with Dier, but it is likely that Pochetinno decides to put Wanyama to strengthen the defense, otherwise it could be complicated by above.
But the most important thing of Totemham is in attack with Kane, known by all for being the scorer of last year, and this is no coincidence, the team in general is very offensive, with Alli, Son, Dembelé and Aurier, fast players and precise, that of winning the back of Alex Sandro they will be able to generate damage and Ericksen, eye with this last one, that in the still ball it can also flip the match, and Pjanic is a player who usually generates many faults on the edge of the area.
The reason why I have expounded so much, is because this pick passes through my very personal opinion of what the game can be, with the forcefulness of Juve and the dynamite of Totem, because if we go for statistics, this pick would go against logic, but beware of Totem, the league seems unattainable, and Pochetinno may want to play all his chips in this competition.
So nothing, very careful everyone who wants to follow it, because the statistics do not support us and if something has Juve is hierarchy, able to get a 0-0 or a 1-0 to whatever, but in all those games that leads without receiving goal, never faced a team with the power of Totem, good luck to be encouraged!
