Candreva To Return To The Starting Line-Up Against Genoa?

It is a special moment for Inter midfielder Antonio Candreva who, after being a starting player, finally was benched in the game against Bologna last Sunday. With the current form, this has caused a problem for Inter coach Luciano Spalletti, although we are talking about a player who very often got substituted during the second half in most of the games.

That is also what Italian newspaper TuttoSport underlines in their Inter coverage of today’s paper edition of the outlet: “Spalletti has substituted Candreva 17 times this season, 16 times in the Serie A where he is only “beaten” by Napoli’s Hamsik who has been brought off 17 times. When it comes to the star players Icardi and Perisic, they have had different treatment, where Icardi has been replaced 9 times, but only during the final minutes. Last Sunday Candreva was on the bench for the entire game and could see his replacement break through and score the winning goal. When it comes to Ivan Perisic, the Croat has never been substituted.”

Now however, Candreva is ready to restart with his engines fired up, and he could return as a starting player tomorrow.
