The position of Kevin Prince Boateng against Barcelona in tonight’s Uefa Champions League could be the litmus test of the tactics of manager Massimiliano Allegri.
A trident pure midfield with Boateng suggest a choice offensive and courageous on the part of the technician Tuscan.
The alternative would see more balanced, as with Parma, The use of a fake Ghanaian external attack, in connection with the midfield position.
In this case two would play in midfield median pure, with no doubt more defensive characteristics.
Pazzini seems to have secured the place but can not exclude the possibility of an attack without points of reference, with all the performers that suit when the counterattack.
By contrast, the absence of a first bit of weight make it more difficult possession of the ball in the most advanced stage, real problem to be solved when playing against the Catalans.
There is still no correct formula to combat Barcelona. Who did not succeed only with the barricades.
Against this team, the difference is the attitude. Only in the case where the environment and the players were now able to embarrass the champions Barca, we play our cards.
