Ya my first guess was right it is Bruno on the right side in a 442.

That Portuguese midfield is quite open with Neves anchoring the midfield. I'm not sure if this is necessarily the best approach given that Shaqiri is in a free role.

Should have hit the target there at least.

It's a dutch 433 with Bernardo as false 9. Strange to see William as left midfield pivot but i guess Santos wants to make up for Ronaldo's lack of defensive work.

Didn't look like a foul to me but nice free kick it's been a while.

Great tackle - ref shows for a foul
Shit free kick - a goal.

Gotta love football.

I'm not sure if the foul was given to Mbabu. Wasn't there another Swiss player who went through C. Ronaldo's back?

Ruben Neves and William can’t play together. They’re both too slow, we can’t press like this
