THE ATTACK STENTA – After an interrupted preseason and an even more complicated championship start against Verona Piatek has quickly stopped the gate, but it remains an unsolved puzzle on how to best the qualities of the Polish striker exploits and makes the development of the game more fluid and productive. From this point of view, there are no improvements to the Gattuso era, and what makes us think more is the comparison with the figures and statistics of the three-year period of Giampaolo in Sampdoria. In the previous championship, the coach from Abruzzo led the team with the highest percentage of successes in shots (16.8%) and fifth place in the ranking of best-placed attacks (60th) ), also thanks to the heroic deed of Fabio Quagliarella author of 26 goals, including 9 on penalty kick.
THE FIGURES OF GIAMPAOLO – Data in contrast to the thirteenth place for conclusions (357) and the performance of Blucerchiati in the two preceding seasons. In 2017/2018, Samp was the tenth-best shooting team (351), the eighth-best attack in the tournament (56) and the fourth-best formation at the realization level (16%). while Giampaolo in the first Genoese year finished his tenth place after number of attempts to finish (369), the twelfth after finish (49) and the fourteenth after performance (13.3%). Figures showing that the new Milanese coach's crew are struggling to realize the amount of the produced game and that in this first look at the championship they seem even more alarming. The Rossoneri are Sextultimate for shots fired, 24, fourth-last for number of goals (2) and fourth-last for the conversion percentage (8.3%) and Piatek, the player who has tried the most (4 times) , ), is far from the various Duvan Zapata, Immobile, Dzeko, Berardi and even a midfielder like the Inter Sensi.
Giampaolo is convinced that he can transform the former Genoa player into a "pirate" and almost exclusively from Strenger in a full attacker and more maneuvering, but for Milan to really "be" and become more in line with his footballing ideas, you also have to intervene on those who turn to number 9. And if you try to reverse this dangerous tendency, if the defense continues to keep hope, the attack is the real pain point this season as well.
