Well, the final showed a lot about both teams.

First of all, if Lotare did great by signing Milinkovic Savic and Immobile they f*cked up with Wallace and other defenders. Wallace looked like he was drunk when passing the ball. Total blackout when Alves scored, he actually let the opposition RB to sneak into the box and score while being all alone and unmarked. Unbelievable.

Immobile on the second goal acted like an idiot. To duck like that instead of clearing the ball is just stupid. He ran a lot again but a very limited performance. He was up against the best defense, I can give him that, but he had too many chances and every time he shot directly at Neto and once missed the whole goal with a header. As lethal as he has been this season he is just too ineffective when playing against stronger players. Keita did nothing to help him out.

If Keita scored maybe we could have played with more bravery. Juventus seems to be very lucky in the finals, last time we also hit the post twice and not first shot on the goal and again a post. Would be a more interesting match if we took the lead, Juve would get shook a bit and we would get wings.

Felipe should have had a more important role. Should have played instead of Basta. I would put Radu instead of Wallace and Felipe instead of Basta because I think Radu is much more experienced than Wallace which is important for a final.

Some of the criticism in this topic is extremely harsh. Let's remember first off, the players are human, not machines. They were up against a team that they haven't even scored against in years, won 5 (6 almost)Scudetti in a row and are in the final of the CL. You can't just flip a switch and get that out of your head.

There were mistakes but I hate when we call the desire of the players into question, that should not be in question this season. At the end of the day we lost 2-0 not 6-0. We had chances and they had chances. Had Keita's shot gone in, who knows how it would have gone.

On top of the fear and pressure of playing Juve, there was also a full section of Lazio fans with a beautiful coreo. Now of course that should be a positive, but the players aren't exactly used to it and that would also add pressure.

All in all it was ok performance bar that 20 minute freak out, but we had just lost Parolo which probably weighed heavier on the players minds too.
