I think Treze will be in the bench for this match .. we need to win this at all costs, Keiv will be very defensive and will count on the counter-attack, specially with their fast players .. we need to score an early goal, and then add to that .. FORZA JUVE !!
I don't know much about them (Kiev) but I've a feeling it will be a tricky match. The team's in fairly good shape, DP is at the top of his form and were playing at home - so we should win, but it won't be easy.
Kiev is a serious team. They've beat Newcastle easily and there are a lot of young creative player - we should think about that. And I hope all of you remember the 0-3 in Barcelina-Kiev match some years ago - after that Sheva moved to Milan. But Kiev is a very collective team, any player can play in any position - that was the main tactical point for years. I know that really good because Kiev is team from exUSSR, so they are really like team from my country, they speaks my language etc. And I can say that Kiev is my favourite team... after Juve for sure ;-)
Btw I'm going to visit the second game - Kiev-Juventus in the November. Kiev is just in 12 hours by train from my city.
This will be a tough game. Dinamo will be pumped after defeating Newcastle last week and will be tricky opponents. With Del Piero hitting top form,I think we should be able to win this one pretty easily though.
Finally I get to watch all 90 mins of a Juve match! I hope they play well...
Does anybody know what formation Lippi plans to go with? Will he go with the 4-3-1-2 or the trident attack which was used against Empoli? And I have another question to ask which requires somebody that witnessed the Empoli - Juve match. Did Del Piero play as a 3rd striker or as a trequartista? Somebody also told me that Nedved played on the right side of midfield and Di Vaio on the left. I need to know what the real deal is.
