Gianluca Vialli who won the champions league with Juventus in 1996 has said that the Italian giants may have to ‘park the bus’ against Spanish club, Barcelona when they meet in the UCL finals.
The Italian champions saw off Real Madrid to clinch a spot in the finals and will face Barcelona come June 6 in Berlin, but Vialli believes the Old Lady will have to adopt the approach of Jose Mourinho’s Inter or Roberto Di Matteo’s Chelsea if they are to defeat Luis Enrique’s side.
“They will have to defend with so many men behind the line of the ball, even if that means parking the bus like Mou and Di Matteo,” Vialli said.
“Barcelona are stronger, don’t forget that. They’re best encountered in a one-off game, as they’re rarely below-par twice.
“If you have people like [Lionel] Messi, Neymar and [Luis] Suarez, you can do a lot of damage.”
