    Gonna be a tough game I'd imagine.

    While Miha fights his illness, his players fight for him.

    That was seen in their last game being 3-1 at ht and then win 4-3. They will be buzzing. This is a big test to see just how much the last 2 games are really something to build on.

    I see a similar lineup to Sassuolo. Would you play Zaniolo or kluivert on the right?

    If these two are going to share minutes on the right until Under comes back then I would try and keep it as fair as possible for both especially now that Kluivert has shown promise on the right. So since Justin started against Sass I would start Zaniolo here and sub him in when the moment arises.

    Fresh legs was needed 10 mins earlier in the last game and I dont think we would have conceded that second goal.

    I'd start Spina at LB. Florenzi had the EL game off now it's time to give Kolarov a game off. We can't play him every game like we have done in the past.

    We play Atalanta midweek as well. So I'd play florenzi and spinny at fb, and hopefully spinny and kolarov Wednesday for Atalanta. Flo can come back in for lecce next weekend.

    I'd also consider resting Pellegrini and put Zaniolo at treq. LoPe can be a second half sub if we need/want.

    Because Brescia got a man sent off. Bologna was absolute shit before that.

    Doesn't discredit the point. 3 goals is still a big climb in one half despite the man advantage. The group will have taken a lot of confidence from that to carry forward into this match.

    I don't think we can afford to take Pellegrini out of the starting line-up

    I think we'll see the same line-up as against Sass with the exception of possibly Zaniolo coming in for Kluivert.

    Extremely hard to leave Nicky Zan out of the starting XI I'd have said.

    Zaniolo must play.

    As long as Pastore ain't starting, I'm cool with it.

    Be honest, how much did it pain you to put Fazio in your 11?

    When the other options are Juan and some Turkish dude named Mert? Not that much.

    Mert is too close to Mort. He's starting off on a negative.

    Quite the opposite actually. He’s an alpha in waiting.

    Sorta shocked they sit Zaniolo after midweek, but I’m fine with that if he starts vs Atalanta.

    Hhmm....Kluivert gets the nod ahead of Nicky Zan again. Interesting.
