Spalletti’s idea: two kinds of Inter in order to beat Sarri
“In the defensive phase with a 4-2-3-1 and in the possessive phase with a 3-4-2-1. Inter coach Luciano Spalletti has investigated two ways of how Inter can confuse Napoli in tonights game against the Naple side”. This according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport who then confirms that there is doubts how Inter’s midfield should look like: “That the defensive lin e-up is ready and that Mauro Icardi will return to the pitch, there is no doubt. It is still to be verified the status of Borja Valero, the Spanish midfielder has not practiced a lot during the last couple of weeks. Yesterday Spalletti tried the couple Brozovic-Gagliardini with Rafinha in front of them. But this seem to be a very offensive solution. This morning the ultimate test will take place”. Here is the probable starting formation according to Corriere dello Sport:
INTER (4-2-3-1): Handanovic; Cancelo, Skriniar, Miranda, D’Ambrosio; Vecino, Gagliardini; Candreva, Brozovic, Perisic; Icardi.
