Inter coach Antonio Conte will have to be creative with his squad choice for today’s league clash against Hellas Verona due to injuries and lack of squad depth, with Austrian international Valentino Lazaro likely to start today, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how star midfielder Stefano Sensi won’t play in the game due to fears of exacerbating his adductor injury, with Danilo D’Ambrosio also unlikely to start due to an injury sustained with the Italian national team last month.
Furthermore, the report adds, Kwadwo Asamoah and Roberto Gagliardini won’t be in the match squad due to fitness concerns, forcing Conte to be creative with his squad selection. Therefore, it’s possible that he will call up Matias Fonseca and Edoardo Vergani from the Primavera squad to fill in the gaps.
Finally, Lazaro is likely to start ahead of Antonio Candreva due to his impressive start against Bologna last weekend and some small fitness concerns surrounding the 32-year-old Italian, the report suggests.
