Tedesco has three midfield options against Romania and for De Bruyne this decision will be very important – Football News

The team that starts against Romania will look completely different from the team that starts against Slovakia. National coach Domenico Tedesco must also find more support for Kevin De Bruyne, who may also decline. Or will Tedesco choose Tielemans after all?

Tedesco needs to rotate his midfield. The big question is: Where does Kevin put De Bruyne? Things went better against Slovakia when KDB dropped a row and thus began to split the game. But then of course he creates less himself. Or does he choose the real number 8 next to Onana instead of sixteen?

Option 1: De Bruyne one row back

The observers all agreed: against countries like Slovakia, you need not only two sixes, but also a player who plays the balls vertically instead of always playing horizontally. De Bruyne could also split the game from there and then Trossard would be in the ’10’ position.

With Doku and Lobakyo/Bakayoko on the peripheries. Or Carrasco as the more advanced pawn in midfield, because Trossard didn’t really make a good impression in that first game.

Option 2: With Tielemans in the team

Tedesco can also ensure De Bruyne gets more help. Then he can place Youri Tielemans next to Onana to get more verticality into the game. Tielemans has more of a “correct” play-action pass. Its disadvantage is that it is very slow and Onana will have to clean a lot.

In this case, Trossard and Carrasco will almost certainly disappear from the starting lineup. Because Thiati has recovered and will take his place at left-back again.

Option 3: The center line remains the same

Tedesco could also choose to try again playing Mangala-Onana against a “weaker” opponent on paper. It is certain that he will no longer start with Trossard on the left and Duco on the right.

Then Trossard falls victim and is replaced by Lobacchio/Bakayoko. Vertonghen also has a left-footed defender at the back, which will make the build-up much easier.
