The 25th league game of the season tomorrow afternoon is an important one. Inter will face Montella’s Fiorentina at the Giuseppe Meazza which now is four points ahead in the league. Roberto Mancini will continue with the 4-3-1-2 with Xherdan Shaqiri starting again behind Lukas Podolski and Mauro Icardi.

In midfield Fredy Guarin, Gary Medel and Marcelo Brozovic will start, no surprises there. In the defense, it is hard to say who will start between Davide Santon and Danilo D’Ambrosio while Juan Jesus and Andrea Ranocchia are expected to form the centre back pairing. Samir Handanovic who has been out the last games will back between the posts.

INTER (4-3-1-2): Handanovic; 14 Campagnaro, 23 Ranocchia (C), 5 Juan Jesus, 21 Santon (33 D’Ambrosio); 13 Guarin, 18 Medel, 77 Brozovic; 91 Shaqiri; 11 Podolski, 9 Icardi.
Coach: Roberto Mancini.

    when there is poldi, need someone like shaq who can run enough..but if play kova, the speed can be added by someone like palacio, especially when play a tight defense like fio…this forward formation really didn’t work…hope i’m wrong :/

  • Inter4Ever

    Where is everyone talking?

    • Qeu

      Yea I wonder it too.. WHERE

  • artha admika

    give us super thor shot guarin !! :hope

  • Recoba – Inter

    good luck inter

  • st

    I think Kovacic and Shaqiri can only either one starting. Shaqiri seems not a good condition right now . Kovacic can’t help defense and not mature enough to play as a playmaker. Palacio should be in place of Poldu. Santon and D’ambo should be on the right and left. This is tge best condition for now Inter

  • Guest

    I think so too, at least try it out. I am pretty sure it would do us good

  • Davis

    Why still use Campagnaro?
    Now we have so much central defender, we can move JJ to the left, Santon/Danilo on the right and use Andreolli/ Felipe/ Vidic with Rano isnt it ?

  • frigo

    Campagnaro, Ranocchia and Palacio it’s time to sit on the bench. Because Fiorentina are not Atalanta, Cagliari or Celtic and we will have to pay for every mistake we’ll do.

  • Pick

    please no campa

    • OzInterista

      My thoughts too – why not Danilo + Davide as fullback pairing (unless one is unfit?)

      • Aaron

        Danilo is coming off an injury but who knows..sounds like a good idea to me

      • kofko

        I am afraid that we need to give Santon a break. He has not played for a long time and that might be dangerous.

  • David Pavlovic

    i think mancini should play both shaqiri and kovacic behind icardi

    • febri haryadi

      me too

    • kofko

      Can’t agree more

  • postal

    Vidic for the “captain”. Danilo for Campagnaro. Armband for Guarin. :}

    • st

      Guarin not bad ……

  • Zoki

    Palacio should be in place of Podolski. He is regaining form and looks better from match to match.

    • Pick

      poldi just needs a bit of luck

      • Zoki

        He has been given so many chances. The shit he has been pulling when he had a free goal…He had his chance, I would only use him as a sub.

        • Pick

          if everyone would have the number of chances like Ranocchia than poldi would play for sure

          • Zoki

            Seeing Podolski in last few matches made my head hurt. Such easy goals but he still managed to screw them up. 0 goals 0 assists in the last 4 matches, where Palacio got 3 goals and an assist(and played only about 20 minutes more). Not to mention that Podolski doesn’t make the runs and isn’t aggresive like Palacio. IMO Palacio over Podolski is a no-brainer.

          • Pick

            most probably poldi will start today simply rotation him and palacio

          • Zoki

            I meant if they are both fully fit and rested. Today, we will see if Mancini wants to rotate squad.

          • Pick

            if palacio is fit there is no question about it just imagine if palacio was fit from the start of the season uffff

  • Inter4Ever

    No way is campa starting O.O but glad to see handa back… and palacio deserves a rest after celtics match

  • principe22

    it’s a shame there’s no place for Kovačić in this Inter formation.. but this is however the most effective and successful line-up at the moment.
