Inter’s Portuguese international midfielder Joao mario, is the favorite to start in midfield next to Matias Vecino, in tonight’s Serie A clash at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milano’s San Siro district, with kickoff scheduled for 20.30 CET.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, who report that the former Sporting player is the favorite ahead of Spanish midfielder Borja Valero as well as former Atalanta man Roberto Gagliardini. The former Fiorentina man injured himself last weekend against Frosinone but medical tests this week showed the injury wasn’t as serious as first feared.
Up front, Sky Sport believe that Lautaro Martinez will return into the starting lineup for the first time since the Derby della Madonnina, replacing former Nerazzurri captain Mauro Icardi, who will be benched.
Inter (4-2-3-1): Samir Handanovic; Danilo D’Ambrosio, Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Kwadwo Asamoah; Matias Vecino, Joao Mario; Matteo Politano, Radja Nainggolan, Ivan Perisic; Lautaro Martinez.
