Although Antonio Conte is one of those coaches who lives a season moment by moment, planning very rarely in the long term, at the moment he seems to be forced. The situation of the Nerazzurri rose certainly does not help, presenting 5 injured plus others who have come back injured by the national team.
The Pugliese coach is therefore forced to play strategy and manage the forces well in view of two fundamental events: the match against Torino and the one against Slavia Prague . On the one hand, there is the championship challenge which, being in conjunction with the Atalanta – Juventus challenge, could lead to an Inter Milan counterweight to the Bianconeri, while on the other side, there is the Champions League, even more fundamental as the situation of the Nerazzurri in Europe is much more complicated. Conte must therefore be able to maintain the balance between these two very important commitments by managing the players' forces at its best.
The injured situation seems to be the same; therefore in the field probably will be the same who played all or almost all 7 games condensed in 21 days pre-stop national. In defense, the Sticks will probably rotate, both to try to give a little continuity to the convincing performance of the boy, and to make sure that a defender with more experience, one of De Vrij and Godin , rests to be then deployed in Champions. In midfield the choices are nothing short of forced; with Sensi who still trains apart like Gagliardini , the usual indefatigable Barella and Brozovic with Vecino on their side will descend in the field hoping to recover human material in view of the Prague challenge. In attack the situation is almost similar: with Politano and Sanchez out at least until mid-December and until January, the goal pair can only play ahead: Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez . First and only change obviously the Nerazzurri baby talent Sebastiano Esposito , who will have to try to exploit the situation as he will surely have so many chances to prove his worth, maybe even starting from 1 minute in a not too distant future.
