Inter’s Squad Has Been Decimated Ahead Of Europa League Clash Against Eintracht

Spalletti is being forced to work around his lack of squad depth more than ever this week, as Inter prepare for arguably the most important week of their season.

Only 11 outfield players will be available for selection against Eintracht, the rest are either suspended or injured. The midfield is by far the worst off. Brozovic felt he pulled a thigh muscle against SPAL, meanwhile recent updates say that Nainggolan will not be available for either game still and neither Gagliardini or Joao Mario are included in the Europa League squad due to financial fair play restrictions.

Leaving Spalletti to come up with a solution, using only Borja Valero and Vecino. Although, Ivan Perisic is expected to make his return from injury this Thursday after he picked up a minor knock in the reverse fixture which forced him to come off.

In terms of the defence, Milan Skriniar got a full games rest, but Joao Miranda broke his nose, leaving Andrea Ranocchia as the only reserve. But due to the midfield crisis, Spalletti might use all three at once in three-at-the-back system, with wingbacks, but without Asamoah and Dalbert.

Finally, in attack, Lautaro is one of those suspended against Eintracth, leaving Keita Balde as the only natural striker alternative, but he will most likely only be used as a sub and is more likely to make his full return against in the derby, meaning Matteo Politano will be playing as a false 9.
