Inter defender Milan Skriniar is unlikely to start against Spanish giants Real Madrid in next week’s Champions League clash, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The report details how the 25-year-old Slovakian defender, who is contracted to the Milanese club until 2023, has finally recovered after a long fight with Covid-19, that forced him to miss the last five games across all competitions.
The player’s negative result came back yesterday, confirming that he will again be available to coach Antonio Conte, but he is unlikely to start against Zinedine Zidane’s side on Tuesday, given his long absence.
It is also unlikely that Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku will feature against Real Madrid next week, and could even miss next weekend’s clash against Atalanta due to his muscle injury.
Alexis Sanchez may be available for Tuesday’s game, but it is currently unclear whether he is fit enough to start or not.
