Formation for Juventus can be either a 4-4-2 with 3 MC’s and AMC or making a diamond of this, or a 4-5-1 with 2x MC, AMR, AML and AMC.
So for the first possibility the best team looks like this:
MC: Sissoko (most defensive one)
MC: Felipe Melo
FC: Del Piero
Or moving Sissoko to DMC so you’ll have a Diamond tactic.
Or the 4-5-1 tactic which will need some new players, and someone from your MCs will need to sit on the bench.
MC: Sissoko (most defensive one)
MC: Felipe Melo / Marchisio
GK\’s: One of the positions you don’t need to worry about with Buffon as the first keeper, surely a rock between the posts. Manninger
RB\’s: Both of your RB’s aren’t really awesome. And both of them take some really big money from you. Altough Zebina looks better than Grygera.
CB\’s: Chiellini of course the first choice here. The 2nd choice here is Legrottaglie, he’s better than Cannavaro. Then it’s up to you to play Caceres (who is nothing special) or our good prospect Ariaudo I’ll go for the 2nd option for sure.
LB\’s: You get 3 players to play in here, so I would sell one of them, propably between De Ceglie and Molinaro. I will offload Molinaro, and play Grosso here (even though someone made it wrong with this contract of Fabio). Definetly buy Criscito from Genoa to this position!
CM\’s: You get 6 players to play here, so you’re propably covered on here. Best three of them are surely Sissoko, Marchisio and Felipe Melo. With Tiago and Poulsen as backups.
AMC’s: Really good covered here, with the great Diego and Giovinco.
FC\’s: Four strikers, Iaquinta, Del Piero and Amauri are really good, Trezeguet also is a four star striker but his contract £110k p/w is scary.. Del Piero is surely a first teamer, and it’s up to you to play Iaquinta or Amauri as the TM, and I would sell Trezeguet.
