STARTING XI

Diego López, Juanfran, João Miranda, Neven Subotić, Weligton Oliveira, Filipe Luís, Xabi Alonso, Arturo Vidal, Yaya Touré, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani.


FORMATION




TACTICS

We will play the 5-3-2/3-5-2 formation. Diego López is the goalkeeper. Juanfran and Filipe Luís will play as attacking wing-backs who will overlap regularly but at the same time would make it a five man backline when we defend. João Miranda, Neven Subotić and Weligton Oliveira form the three-man central defence.

The midfield comprises of Xabi Alonso, Arturo Vidal and Yaya Touré. Xabi Alonso will play as a holding midfielder, who would sit infront of the defence and at the same time, control the tempo of the game. Arturo Vidal will play as a balanced box-box midfielder like he does for Juventus. He would contribute defensively but would also make plenty of attacking runs into the box. Yaya Touré though, would have completely freedom to attack and combine with the front two. His link-up play, creativity and goals would be key, especially since he would have more freedom to play his natural attacking role.

Edinson Cavani leads the line with Cristiano Ronaldo playing off him as a second striker/withdrawn forward, like he is doing for Real Madrid currently. Cristiano Ronaldo would have the complete license to roam and play in a free role. Edinson Cavani would run the channels and also look to get the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Arturo Vidal and Yaya Touré into the game with his hold-up and link-up play. His work-rate would be absolutely vital in us pressing from the front and looking to win back the possession as early as possible.

Der Kaiser's midfield supported by two strong wingbacks will run over Jose in the middle of the park, especially where an ageing Gerrard and a defensively irresponsible Pastore aren't going to be able to keep up with the energy of Filipe, Vidal, and Toure. Defensively tight enough to keep out Jose's strikers and his attack is simply far superior with CR7 and Cavani up top. Should be a relatively comfortable win here for DK.

JOSEDIN 0-3 Der Kaiser - Ronaldo x2, Toure

Der Kaiser takes this one rather easily. JOSEDIN's side is better than it probably gets credit for, but der Kaiser has too much quality. He'll dominate in midfield. However he played this too conservatively despite his back line and he does lack real creativity in midfield. Still you don't need great creativity to unleash Ronaldo and he always shows up against the weaker sides.


JOSEDIN 0 - der Kaiser 3 (Ronaldo, Cavani, Ronaldo)

I like Jose's lineup this time, and it's a decent team, but DK's superior quality in midfield (despite Toure and Vidal not being at their best now) and Ronaldo up front give him a 2-1 win.

i think Dk worked wrongly on his team for this game.
however, most of josedin's players are has been (daniel alves, gerrard) or simply not up there. the ones with quality seem a bit lost.

dk 2 -0 josedin

Kaiser's wimpy Serie A fagtics almost costs him the game, but is spared the blushes by his MVP, one of the most in-form players in the world, the always brilliant Ed Cavani.

0-1 Kaiser

0-1 Kaiser
Routine 1-0 win for Pav through very boring and predictable football similar to Juve in Serie A.
The Mess drags Blau's nobodies to a victory with a late effort reminiscent of the Argie NT. Will it be enough in this tournament?

1-0 Blew.

Pav is clearly beef-voting.
Bredda, last year you played with 5 defenders and played catenaccio. And this time solid, balanced teams with solid tactics are playing boring Serie A footie. :D You're promoting light midfields because you have one. Vote and comment honestly and don't try to influence the game to tilt it in your favor please.
