Allegri Plotting Juventus Tactical Evolution Exploiting a Few Returns

After a terrible start, Juventus have found their groove with five straight wins. Coach Massimiliano Allegri has never had the full roster at his disposal due to injuries thus far. The situation will improve after the second break and could bring some tactical adjustments.

For instance, the coach is a big believer of Arthur, reports. The former Barcelona player missed the early portion of the schedule. He underwent surgery in the offseason to remove a lower leg ossification. He returned among the call-ups in the Derby della Mole.

“Arthur is a technical player, a good distributor that raises the quality of the team,” Allegri stated in the pre-game presser. The manager will test whether he could turn into the deep-lying playmaker they searched for in the summer. If that were the case, he could switch to a three-man midfield, Tuttosport informs.

Otherwise, the gaffer will work on a 4-2-3-1 similar to what he has been deploying so far. Using Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernardeschi as strikers were momentary due to the emergency. They will return to the flanks once the forwards heal.

In that regard, Allegri plans to lean on Kaio Jorge in Serie A play, as he was not included in the Champions League list. The starlet played a few minutes against Torino. The coach commented afterward: “He touched just a couple of balls, but you can see he is alert.” Juventus will organize a midweek friendly to help the two Brazilians get into shape.
