Nicolo Barella is a match winner, says Luigi Garlando in Gazzetta dello Sport. He said that Barella is able to change the game in key moments. He can help Azzurri win matches just like he has been doing with the Nerazzurri. Barella has been operating at the right side of a midfield three for Italy. He occupies a similar position for Inter Milan as well. He works as a mezzala and helps Italy create chances from the half-spaces.
Barella links up with Chiesa and Di Lorenzo on the right and tries to move in the middle to give more passing options. It will be an interesting battle between Italy and Spain as both the teams have immense quality in their midfield. He will most likely be against another young and talented midfielder, Pedri who works at the left side of the midfield three for Spain. It will be interesting to see that who will win the battle between the two. Both of them are highly rated by their respective club and countries.
Barella is a match winner and has immense potential, says Garlando
Garlondo says that Arrigo Sacchi was right when he said that Barella has huge potential. The way Barella managed to score the goal against Belgium was just brilliant. He managed to turn and find his way through the defenders and had the composure to finish it in the end against one of the best goalkeepers is truly remarkable. Barella did not look like a match-winner when he was young. He had a small figure and was pushed off the ball rather easily. But slowly we got to know about his true potential. Barella has changed the Nerazzurri’s midfield. Also, he has been very important for them in their Scudetto victory this season.
Now Spain will definitely have some plans to stop him and Barella will try his best to help Azzurri get to the finals.
