Off we go to another CL clash
The game will take place next tuesday, in El Madrigal, at 19.45 GMT
Koeman called the following players:
Goalies: Quim , Rui Nereu.
Defenders: Nelson, João Pereira, Anderson, Luisão, Ricardo Rocha, Léo.
Midfielders: Geovanni, Carlitos, Petit, Karagounis, Manuel Fernandes, Beto, Karyaka, Simão.
Strikers: Mantorras, Nuno Gomes.
Regarding Miccoli, only tomorrow there will be some concrete info concerning the gravity of his injury, and Moreira is still out with a knee injury..
Let's hope we can grab a win! At least a tie is very important imo...these are our most direct contenders, and should we play like we did in Old Trafford (but with a lil more ambition) and yesterday against Porto...we should make a good result!!
I would like to repeat the same starting line-up as against Porto, with of coz someone replacing Miccoli...which might be geovanni....
I would give karagounis the starting role in spite of his not so good performance last saturday, because during the 1st half we should basically try to hold Villareals attack , and he can do that job well imo.
For the 2nd half and to give the team a more dynamic attacking profile, we could sub in karyaka again
I wouldnt be surprised if koeman choses to play ricardo rocha in leo's place...not that leo isnt good ( hes better than ricardo in that position imo) but he may want to play a more physical defense...
Just leave beto on the bench, ok ronald?
Anyways, here goes my starting line-up for the match:
nelson - luisão - anderson - leo
petit - manuel fernandes
geovanni - nuno gomes - simão
Let's keep up with the good results and the good performances
