The move here is to come out with the strongest 11, get it done, and we rotate against Bologna. Bologna would be a challenging match even with our strongest 11. If we go +15 after Genoa, who really cares what happens against Bologna. It’s a good opportunity to give our bench a tough match and we can rest our starters for a battle in Madrid.
Disagree, we have enough points to tweak the lineup in both games and rest players.

It doesn't need to be wholesale changes. One or two starters, with one or two being subbed at the hour mark.

You want our main guys well rested for Ateltico, and guys like Aslani, Frattesi, Augusto, Sanchez, Arnautovic, (Buchanan, Dumfries) ready enough to come on and make impact if called upon.

I'm tempted to get a 2 star avatar, but I don't want to jinx it.

Eh, I prefer the idea of playing this penultimate game as a "proper" game, best available XI, and try to keep things on track, and then (hopefully at +15) rotate the hell out of the Bologna away game with all eyes on the 2nd leg in Madrid. If we're at +15, we can afford a rotation game even against a tough opponent, because even if we lose it won't be the end of the world. But I want us operating under normal service for this game to fully capitalize on Juve spotting us three more points to add to our lead.

Weirdly enough I'm excited to see Dumfries starting. He came back from injury playing like he ate some lion meat during recovery. Running over left backs as if he was playing against Primavera level opponents. He is already looking red hot and ready to play against Theo.

Yeah, same here. He started the season well, then had a few games where he didn't look interested in playing + drama with the contract negotiations, but now he is slowly turning it up, just at the right time for CL matches.

What is this drama with the contract negotiations? As far as I know, he's been simply not fit and has been dealing with physical issues.

He was having his worst run of games when he was demanding more money than what we were offering.

In order to reach 90 points like Napoli last season (which should be enough), we can afford to waste 15 points. Of course, this game seems like must win, but is crazy what an advantage we have.
lets be real juve are NOT getting 90 points but a win is a win and this group of boys will give everything theyve got to bring it home

Lol poor Mkhitaryan, starting 12 games in a row at the age of 35. Who does Inzaghi think Mkhi is? Lebron?

Mozzarella man. Have you seen the video? Pimenta told he walked into the finest ristorante in Milano and ordered only mozzarella, nothing else.

Man is in peak fitness.

I don't buy that BS at all. Timeline is what the media tells you.
