Antonio Conte will make only one change to Inter’s starting XI for Thursday’s Serie A fixture at Parma, according to an Italian media report today.
As per Corriere dello Sport’s print edition, Conte will bring Achraf Hakimi back into the side after the Moroccan served a one-match suspension during Sunday’s 3-0 win over Genoa.
Hakimi will come back in at right wing-back at the expense of Matteo Darmian, who performed well in the Moroccan’s absence, scoring Inter’s second goal in their 3-0 win over the Rossoblu.
Christian Eriksen will meanwhile continue to be preferred to Arturo Vidal to complete the midfield at the Stadio Ennio Tardini alongside Nicolo Barella and Marcelo Brozovic.
Barella, Brozovic, Romelu Lukaku and Alessandro Bastoni are all a booking away from missing Monday’s match against Atalanta but Conte does not intend to rest any of them.
Stefano Sensi, who has missed out lately due to injury, will be back on the substitutes bench for the match in Emilia-Romagna.
Inter’s probable starting XI vs Parma (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Eriksen, Perisic; Lukaku, Lautaro.
