Giampaolo surprised everyone by picking Bonaventura for his first start since October 25, 2018.
He said, “We needed experience, character and the ability to deal with the situation. I really liked Bonaventura, as he also has great timing with his passes, a delicate touch.
“Above all, he brought balance, because I struggle to play with three pure strikers. He gave us some balance there, as he can track back, but also play with quality going forward."
