After Jeison Murillo was cleared of injury yesterday, Stefano Pioli can now afford to think more calmly about how to organise his side against Roma.
In the last three matches, Inter have played with a variable system. Pioli has opted for a 3-4-2-1 which has turned into a 4-2-3-1 in certain phases of play due to the movement of Antonio Candreva on the right and Danilo D’Ambrosio on the left.
Without Miranda, Pioli will have to decide whether to continue along these lines. D’Ambrosio could start in a back three alongside Murillo and Gary Medel. However, the coach could also choose to field a classic back four which would allow Yuto Nagatomo or Cristian Ansaldi to be deployed at left back. Albeit, D’Ambrosio could continue on the left flank of Pioli’s 3-4-2-1 which would then open the door for either Marco Andreolli or Trent Sainsbury to start in defence.
