For Ancelotti, do pressing against Pirlo is a risky move. Without pressing any Pirlo, the midfield Madrid repeatedly failed to anticipate a breakthrough or pass to Tevez.
“Pressing against Pirlo makes our midfield so wide open. That makes them easily sent a breakthrough for Tevez, and that they often did in the first half,” Ancelotti said on Football Italia.
“We let him (Pirlo) had more room to prevent that from happening,” said Ancelotti.
Juventus’s second goal, Tevez scored with a penalty, was also born as a result of empty midfield Madrid. When it is, almost the entire cast of Madrid is in the area of defense Juventus to welcome a corner and carry out attacks.
Impact, Tevez freely counterattack until finally breached Dani Carvajal in the penalty box.
