Indnyc--------------------------------------------------------Gio Indnyc write up Formation: 3-4-2-1/3-4-3 Tactics: High Press with emphasis on quick play and ball retention. Loosely based on the 3-4-2-1 used by Bayern Spoiler Defense: Alaba and Valencia play at wing backs. As terrible as Valencia is now, at his peak the guy virtually ran our entire right flank. Alaba of course is well suited to play in this role as he has played a similar role with Bayern De Ligt is probably my weakest player given the short career. Having said that, he is probably one of the best players in the market and expected to move to a big team sooner rather than later. His performance Vs. United in the Europa league shows his defensive and ball playing skills. Spoiler Koscielny and Azpilicueta are pretty well known and rated so don't need to go too much into their profile. Midfield Nzonzi and Banega form the core of the Sevilla midfield of 2015-2016 when the won the Europa League. Nzonzi is more defensive of the 2 but both of them have incredible work rate and will press the opposition. Having played for Unai Emery both of them are adept at pressing and will harass the opposition midfield. Attack Coutinho, Reus and Lewandowski form a deadly attack and would be a handful for any defense. Excellent pace and an ability to press from the front Gio write up TACTICS: 4-2-3-1 WHY WE WILL WIN: Midfield control - De Bruyne and Vidal with Rabiot's support should boss the midfield area. Hamsik too will offer support and attacking punch. Each of them will get chances to get in behind Indnyc's midfield line to expose the opposition defence. Defence that can match up to Indnyc's attacking threats. The hulking Koulibaly is a good fit for squaring up to Lewandowski and has been delivering top class performances for a number of seasons now. Most recently Koulibaly shut out the big Pole in Senegal's win in their World Cup match up. Dzeko packs too much physical punch for a slightly soft central defensive pairing. Notwithstanding that Koscielny hit a good peak level for Arsenal, and De Ligt is one of the most promising defensive talents around, I'm not sure either are a good fit for getting to grips with Dzeko's presence and forceful forward play. His experience could bully the youth of Indync's defensive axis with two 19-year-olds in the one area of the team that requires nous and grizzled experience. PLAYER PROFILES: Manuel Neuer One of the most dominating, pro-active and aggressive keepers of all time. Has won it all with Bayern and Germany and brings serious experience to the team. Mario Fernandes Turned down Real to sign for CSKA Moscow where he has been tearing it up since 2012. One of the standout defenders at the 2018 World Cup, notably shutting out Spain's left flank in the second round. True to his Brazilian roots, he offers plenty going forward as well, assisting Cheryshev in the World Cup against Egypt. Fabio Coentrao Swashbuckling left-back whose career peaked early at Benfica and Real Madrid. Has impressive international pedigree shining for Portugal at the 2010 World Cup and again at Euro 2012 where he was arguably the best left-back on show. In his 2009-2013 peak, he carried the ball with panache and was usually preferred to Marcelo by Mourinho when Real Madrid sought more defensive solidity as they faced the big boys in the Champions League. Kalidou Koubilaly Nicknamed The Wall or K2, the imposing Senegalese has been in the top handful of central defenders in the world over the last three years. Powerful, athletic and rangy, he is equally very comfortable in possession and can open up play with his tidy left peg. Has a fantastic spring which Ramos-style he can make count when it matters most, as he showed most emphatically with the late headed winner in the do-or-die title clash against Juventus in April. Marquinhos First choice at PSG since the age of 19, Marquinhos has matured into a reliable and dominating defender. Moulded in the image of Thiago Silva, he shares his compatriot's athleticism and slickness. Perhaps the best defender under the age of 25 in the world. Adrien Rabiot Like Marquinhos, first choice at PSG since his teenage days, Rabiot brings class, composure and presence to the heart of midfield. His rangy frame allows him to quickly intercept the ball, while his silky left foot consistently finds PSG's attackers. Arturio Vidal Hugely dominating box-to-box midfielder who has been a tour de force for Juventus and Bayern at club level. Scored heavily at his peak (33 goals in 2012/13 and 2013/14), but was always an all-round and complete player who contributed all over the park. With Chile he won back-to-back Copa Americas in 2015 and 2016, cruising into the Team of the Tournament in both years with his talismanic displays. Kevin de Bruyne In the last four seasons, De Bruyne has been his club's player of the year in three of them. Incisive passer who has cut open the most organised of defensive lines, he is the best crosser the league has seen since Beckham and is a two-footed threat from range. Complete attacking midfielder who reprises his inside-right channel 8/10 hybrid role here. Marek Hamsik Napoli's highest ever goalscorer having reached double figures on eight occasions. Versatile and has performed to a high level as a support striker, inside forward (on both sides), and more recently as a central midfielder. Here he reprises his inside-left role from 2012/13 when he boasted his highest average ratings of any Serie A season, scoring 11 goals and creating 17 assists in the league alone. Class act who poses serious danger in behind the midfield line. Ezequiel Lavezzi Fleet-footed and nimble winger who tore it up for Napoli in the late 2000s alongside Hamsik. An excellent dribbler who brings width, energy and acceleration to the attack. Edin Dzeko Has matured like a fine wine in recent years. Proven goalscorer who has five seasons with 24 goals or more. Perhaps more importantly has made a habit of scoring in the big games, netting home and away in last year's Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona, as well as both semi-final legs against Liverpool. In his last 24 European games he has netted a Cristiano-esque 19 times. Has a seriously impressive international record of 53 goals in 95 games for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
