Tuttosport also tries to predict the formation of Inter against Bologna: “In defence, everything points to Pioli starting with Medel and Miranda, although they risk suspension. This because they are just too important to Inter’s defence right now. As full-backs, there is a chance that Pioli continues with Murillo to the right and D’Ambrosio to the left as he did against Empoli. In midfield we have Joao Mario and Gagliardini behind Ever Banega as trequartista. Perisic returns to the team in his usual position with Candreva to the right, and in the attack Palacio will most likely get the call again with Eder as the primary substitute if Inter needs to score. Here is the probable formation:
INTER (4-2-3-1): Handanovic; Murillo, Medel, Miranda, D’Ambrosio; Gagliardini, Joao Mario; Candreva, Banega, Perisic; Palacio.
