AC Milan will rely on a weapon called Messi from Malaga in their attempt to steal victory at Juventus headquarters.
The fierce match of Juventus vs AC Milan will color the 35th week of Serie A, the Italian League top caste competition, the 2020-2021 season.
The match will be held at the Allianz Stadium, Sunday (9/5/2021) or Monday morning at 01.45 WIB.
On a visit to Juventus headquarters, Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan will carry a weapon named Messi from Malaga.
Lionel Messi is still defending Barcelona. So who is the figure in question?
This figure is none other than Brahim Diaz. According to reports from several Italian media, one of which is La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Brahim Diaz will be featured from the first minute of the match against Juventus.
Brahim Diaz will fill the trequartista post, aka the hole attacker, right behind the spearhead, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, in a 4-2-3-1 scheme.
Hakan Calhanoglu, who usually plays as a trequartista, will be shifted slightly to become a left-wing striker.
Alexis Saelemaekers, who served at the right-wing attacking post, then completed Ibrahimovic’s trident.
Returning to Messi from Malaga, the title refers to Brahim Diaz’s style of play and hometown.
Even though he is still far from the level of Messi, Brahim Diaz is known to have deadly dribbles.
Stefano Pioli has said that the Brahim Diaz dribble is “poisonous”. The cleverness of dribbling the ball and the small posture with low gravity would immediately remind people of Lionel Messi.
Meanwhile, Malaga is the birthplace of Brahim Diaz. On August 3, 1999, aka 21 years ago, Brahim Diaz was born in the city located in the Andalusian region.
AC Milan fans can expect a lot of Brahim Diaz in the duel against Juventus.
The last time it was believed to be mental since the first minute, Brahim Diaz was able to make a real contribution in the form of goal scoring.
The incident took place in an away match against Fiorentina on 21 March. At that time AC Milan brought home a 3-2 victory from the Artemio Franchi Stadium.
In the last four matches, Brahim Diaz has only cumulatively lasted 62 minutes. He is always shown as a substitute.
The match against Juventus is also a good chance for Brahim Diaz to immediately sting from the first minute.
Brahim Diaz’s real contribution in the form of goals and assists often brought points for I Diavolo Rosso (Red Devils), nicknamed AC Milan.
