UEFA Champions League

Opinion: 3 Ways Thomas Tuchel May Lineup His Attack


A difficult challenge awaits Chelsea on September 29th as the Blues travel to Turin to face Juventus in the first round of the Champions League group stage. Due to the fact that both sides are extremely strong defensively and offensively, the match is sure to create a number of interesting highlights. 

Chelsea's head coach is likely to send some of his best players, such as Romelu Lukaku, Ngolo Kante, Rudiger, and others, into the encounter against Arsenal. The Juventus team, on the other hand, would be represented by prominent players like as Chiesa, Ramsey, De Ligt, and others as they prepare for the encounter. 

Thomas Tuchel will be aiming for a strong performance from his team, as he expects his team to take advantage of the majority of their opportunities in the game. Check out these three possible attacking lineups for Thomas Tuchel ahead of the match. 

1) Combining Lukaku with Ziyech and Kai Havertz in the starting lineup 

The first scenario in which Thomas Tuchel may set up his assault against Juventus is with a front trio consisting of Romelu Lukaku, Kai Havertz, and Cheikhou Kouyate. All three players would be excellent in the attacking third because they are all very strong at converting goal-scoring opportunities. 

Ziyech is quite proficient with long balls, which he can use to generate opportunities for Lukaku as a result of his pinpoint passing accuracy. He is also extremely dangerous in the opposition's defense, since he is extremely calm and intelligent when he has the ball in his possession the majority of the time. Lukaku, on the other hand, is regarded as one of the top attackers in the world at the present time. The striker is well-known for his shot power, strength, stamina, and a variety of other impressive characteristics. 

2. Pairing Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku

Additionally, Thomas Tuchel can line up his offense in such a way that the attacking abilities of both attackers in the forward line are combined. Timo Werner is a quick and accurate passer, and he has the ability to create numerous goal-scoring opportunities for Romelu Lukaku on the pitch. 

3. Playing Timo Werner as a false 9 in a combination with Kai Havertz, Hudson Odoi, and Ziyech

Chelsea manager could also use Timo Werner as a false 9 against Juventus, pairing him with Havertz, Odoi, and Ziyech as all four players would cause havoc against the Juventus defense.
