Douglas Maicon (inter) Vs. Dani Alves (barcelona) Who's Better?

Douglas Maicon is now one of the best right-back in the world, bombing up the flank like an unstoppable machine.

Dani Alves is rated as the best right back in the world. Known for his stamina,

agressiveness, and attacking ability he is one of the top performers for Barcelona this season.

^^^^ Forget those yarns jare. Alves and Maicon are great full/wing backs however Alves is an average defender. That's the exact same reason why Maldini is rated over carlos. R.Carlos and Maldini are legendary full backs however one is clearly better than the other when it comes to the art of defending.

How can anyone that has eyes say Alves cannot defend? Thats just pure garbage. Na so people dey talk say Ibrahimovic dey lazy. This nonsense just goes viral and there is no truth to them. Maicon is a better defender than ALves, that doesn't make Alves and average defender. thats about the most ridiculous argument i've heard on NL so far. Is Ribery an Average player just because Messi is better than him?

As a football lover who hasn't caught the 'club supportership bug', it is my opinion that Maicon is better than Alves. Kai! Brazil is truly blessed.

Nahh Alves is an average defender. U just admitted yourself that he is lucky enough to have players who do cover his tracks when he goes missing. I agree he is fast and he does win possesion back in the opposition's half however that does not take away from the fact that he is a mediocre defender. I won't say bad but definitely average.

ALves is a very good defender. He gets forward a lot because he is an attacking threat so coaches put his ability good use. He doesn't get caught out a lot because he has good cover. Abidal slides into CB with Pique and Puyol covers him (like a 3 man defense). That is why I get worried when Mawxell plays because he also likes to get forward and having both him and Alves on the pitch together could be dangerous. But Alves doesn't get beaten easily, is very fast, and applies lots of pressure in the opposition half winning back possession for us over and over again in games. That he spends a lot of time in the opposition half doesn't mean he is a bad defender. . .it's just a tactical decision IMO.

U must have smoked weed this morning. The words Alves and Defence don't go 2gether. I've lost count on the amount of times alves has been caught out of position. Great attacker,average bodering on bad defender. It's that simple.

YOU MUST BE DRUNK. Alvez is a very good defender. People juss like to dey follow crowd. Because everybody says some poo doesn't make it true. I think Maicon is better overall, but Alves is in no way a bad defender. Maicon is just better.

Alvez played the 2 WC qualifiers against Uruguay and Paraguay before the confederation cup

Maicon is in the starting eleven because he has been in the team before Alves

That does'nt mean he's better

They both scored a goal each at the Confederation cup.

Alves is a complete RB! He can play free kicks, he can shoot, he can dribble

Why do you think he's better than Alves?

Admit it maicon is better than Alves, it was even confirmed in the confed cup

So you telling me Dunga is silly for benching Alves for Maicon, Alves has no place

in that brazil starting 11 with a fully fit Maicon. go figure

I hope the just concluded FIFA Confederation cup has put this argument to rest now. If nothing else, it has proved that while Maicon is a world class footballer, he is nowhere near the immensely gifted Alves.

And this has got nothing to do with the club I support, (Barcelona).

Seeing Maicon in this confed. Cup, I'd say he is better than Alves.

Its fine that you feel that maicon is better, but it would be more credible if you could back up your view with some objective info or third party evaluations, and not just your personal opinions.

One of the qualities of good full backs is the ability to join attack seamlessly.

Dani Alves for me anyday over Maicon or Ramos

Ramos is a RB and has never played as a LB so who is replacing who?

6-2, 4-0 are terrible scorecards for any defender that played a part in such shows of shame

maicon is a better defender

Sagna is better than ramos defensively, hes more of a wingback than a defender so make we rest

Ramos? He's a flamboyant player with good flashes, plus he's good going forward. But as a RB? He's not exceptional - in fact, I think he'll make a better CB in the future than a RB.

Alves is more offensively gifted than Ramos, along with exceptional pace. As a RB, he's not excellent either.

Maicon beats them both hands down.

Maicon is the best RB in the world

If Ramos is the best RB in the world, then Yobo is the best CB in the world

whats the difference between Ramos and Alves?

Alves crosses are atrocious? All that means is that the only game you watched was the 2nd leg against chelsea.

I still maintain my stance, sagna is the best right back in the world defensively

he has been arsenal's most consistent and reliable player for a while now, i guarantee

you if arsenal was winning trophies and the whole world focuses on them, everyones perception of him will

totally change

Shut the Bleep up with your Real Madrid bullshit.

Ramos is the most useless RB in the world.

Bosingwa shits on Ramos every day of the week. Bacary Sagna is even better(not forgetting Zambrotta).

Aggression ain't skills.

Overall, Ramos is the best RB in the world. He is better defensively than most including maicon and alves, not bad going forward, just 24, has good aerial abilities, and can also play as a central defender.

some people sha,

i am a barca fan, but i would prefer Alves play as a 7 than as a 2, reasons best known to me and other unbiased football fans

Maicon is good, but kinda too heavy as a RB
