Luciano Spalletti, mindful of the experience against Pordenone last season, wants to avoid any kind of drop-off in concentration in tomorrow’s Coppa Italia match against Benevento.
“That is why he is hammering the group, it is clear that there will be space for some secondary players, in particular Padelli and Ranocchia but the attitude must still be to go and get hold of the game immediately,” Rome based Corriere dello Sport underlines.
There must also be careful attention paid to the atmosphere as it will be played behind closed doors. In the stands there will only be the delegations of the two teams, which have 200 representatives each, while the press stand will be occupied. This is the first of the two games that Inter must play behind closed doors as a result of the racist chanting heard in the match against Napoli on boxing day.
Here is the probable Nerazzurri lineup:
Inter (4-3-3): Padelli; D’Ambrosio, Ranocchia, Skriniar, Dalbert; Gagliardini, Borja Valero, Joao Mario; Candreva, Martinez, Perisic.
