“With Joao Miranda and Danilo D’Ambrosio out due to injuries against Lazio, the only option for Inter coach Luciano Spalletti is to put Joao Cancelo on the right side with Andrea Ranocchia and Milan Skriniar as central defenders. On the left side it is not yet clear who will start from Davide Santon and Yuto Nagatomo. both players have been playing at that position during the last couple of days’ practices. But at the end the Japanese player, one of few positive performances against AC Milan in TIM Coppa Italia, should get the start. But the Italian Santon has a number of physical characteristics that could be very useful against Lazio.”
This according to Turin-based newspaper TuttoSport who also predicts the return of duo Vecino-Gagliardini on Inter’s center midfield with Borja Valero playing behind striker Mauro Icardi. This is the probable Inter formation:
INTER (4-2-3-1): Handanovic; Cancelo, Skriniar, Ranocchia, Nagatomo; Vecino, Gagliardini; Candreva, Borja Valero, Perisic; Icardi.
