After a strong start to the 2018/19 season, many believed Inter Milan were a lock to at least finish 3rd in Serie A and guarantee a spot in the Champions League for next season. How times have changed. The past few months has seen nothing but chaos for a club desperately seeking stability, and now the team find themselves below rivals AC Milan on the table.

With Roma chasing close behind in 5th place, the three-horse race for two Champions League spots has heated up and Inter cannot afford to drop any more points. Unfortunately, a series of ongoing injuries and drama has only made the path that much harder.

Upcoming Matches:

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Inter, Thursday March 7th, Commerzbank-Arena, kickoff 18:55 CET

Inter vs Spal, Sunday March 10th, Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, kickoff 15:00 CET

First Team Fitness:

Keita Balde Diao: Still not fit due to his hamstring injury. The Senegalese winger seemed to finally be hitting his stride back in December with a string of strong performance before a training injury sidelined him for the entirety of 2019 thus far. As of now there remains to clear timetable on when he’ll be able to play in matches. Given the team’s depth issues and European competition restrictions, Spalletti is undoubtedly waiting for some good news on Keita Balde’s health. With little more information to go on, all the Interista can do is hope for the best.

Radja Nainggolan: Having already missed a number of matches this season due to a poor run of injury luck, Nainggolan has already been ruled out for today’s match in Frankfurt after recently suffering a calf injury during training. New reports from Sky Sports also seem to indicate the Belgian is in serious doubt and likely won’t play in the Miland Derby on March 17th. At this time the club have provided little specifics on the injury so when he’ll actually be able to return is anyone’s guess

Roberto Gagliardini/Joao Mario/Henrique Dalbert: All three men will not be eligible to play the reverse fixture on Thursday due to the Financial Fair Play (FFP) limitations to Inter’s squad size, however they should be available for selection for Sunday’s away match.
