Juventus - OL : Maxence Caqueret, baby boss
There are those who would be inhibited by the pressure which increases the motivation of champions tenfold in big matches. And the least that can be said is that Maxence Caqueret has been proving lately that he belongs in this category. Alongside Bruno Guimaraes and Houssem Aouar, the 20-year-old perfectly completes this three-man midfield. Ever eager, he has never stopped pressing, winning the ball, and making runs, using all of his talent and finesse. And all of this was a part of his very first appearance in the Champions League, the most prestigious of competitions.
As useful offensively as defensively, the pure product of the academy posed a lot of problems for the Turin side for more than 90 minutes. Sometimes a little too involved in his interventions, he continued to shine even in the weaker moments of his team and was undoubtedly one of the keys to Lyon's qualification. If the young French U-21 international manages to maintain this level of performance, there is no doubt that he will be an essential player for OL in the years to come. The club can rub their hands with glee.
