Fighting like beavers.

Hopefully we get that balance right between taking risks (which we probably will from the start, at least more than them) and being careful with their transition of power and pace. On paper, they do have the right tools to hurt our backline; Rashford's pace against Gomez (probably, with Trent starting in Maribor), Mata (a responsible player) cutting inside in that pocket behind our LCM and between Lovren and Moreno (with Valencia supporting, hopefully Coutinho forces them to tighten up, Herrera will probably look to block him), Mkhitaryan (fantastic so far this season) connecting their double pivot and the rest. I guess Wijnaldum gets that LCM role and Can goes at RCM up against Matic. 2 very frustrating games last season, first one especially, but the ref blocked our win at Old Trafford.
