Spalletti Could Deploy Brozovic in Juventus-Inter

Luciano Spalletti could deploy Marcelo Brozovic and change his trusted 4-2-3-1 in to a 4-3-3 for Saturday night’s Derby D’Italia at the Allianz Stadium, Turin according to Tuttosport.

The Nerazzurri boss could do so in order to mess up his opposite number Max Allegri’s plans to beat the 4-2-3-1 system that Spalletti has used in every game this season.

Spalletti will reflect on the situation and may also be interested in re-watching Inter’s 3-0 win over Juventus in March 2016 in the Coppa Italia semi-final to see what Brozovic has done against Juventus in the past.

Roberto Mancini’s Inter won 3-0 in Turin with thanks to two goals by Brozovic. That evening he was deployed as the attacking midfielder in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Inter went on to lose on penalties but it was one of, if not the best performance from Brozovic in Nerazzurro.

This season, the 25-year-old Croatian midfielder has made 10 appearances and managed to find the net on three occasions while also making one assist.

    It is time to put the Brozovic experiment to bed. He is way to inconsistent to be in a top club like Inter. He cannot control the ball well. His passing is either wonderful or woeful. He is always losing the ball in dangerous locations. He did more for Juve than Inter this weekend. I hope he is getting this extra play time to get some transfer offers for him.

    Rather have Brozo-valero-vecino in midfield rather than Valero-vecino-gaglia
    Cus if we play counter brozo would give them through passes like against chievo but if Rube play counter , Gaglia would be a bit problem because he gives away the ball too often

    hes great with his left and right and has decent vision, although not a amf by nature he works harder than most to track back

    To me him and Valero should always be sure starters.
    Then the rest of the group for one spot.

  • Murillo4President

    I think he should start with Valero and Vecino behind them. Come out ready to attack and bring on Gagliardini or Joao Mario if needed.

      Yep could work, still think we’ll go with two holding midfielderss in Gagliardini and Vecino and Borjo in front just like in the Napoli game. Then when June gets tired (they played in Greece on Tuesday night while we were having a great Christmas party and relaxing) Brozo could come on

    a couple of impressing through balls from him in the last game

  • casperv

    3 goals and one assist in only 10 games – pretty damn good for a midfielder if you ask me!

    • Bellal Amerkhail

      better than kondogbia with 12 appearances 3 goals 1 assist

      • casperv

        Yep still, kongodbia is doing well in Spain – a league with no focus on defending and thy at good for him and us!

  • Mr J

    Brozo is playing well this season even though he is not a regular starter.

    • JAY

      still lacks major consistency or he would be worth 140m
