Inter will be facing a Sassuolo side decimated by injuries and absences in tomorrow’s rearranged Serie A match, according to a report in the Italian media today.
Antonio Conte is without the suspended Alessandro Bastoni and Marcelo Brozovic for the game at San Siro, but his counterpart Roberto De Zerbi could have far bigger problems in terms of personnel.
Corriere dello Sport’s print edition said Filippo Romagna, Domenico Berardi, Mehdi Bourabia, Gregoire Defrel and Francesco Caputo would all miss the trip to play the Nerazzurri due to injury.
In addition to them, Kaan Ayhan has tested positive for COVID-19 while Murt Muldur, Manuel Locatelli and Gian Marco Ferrari could be kept out as a precaution.
Federico Peluso and Vlad Chiriches could form a partnership at centre-back, Francesco Magnanelli will return to midfield and Lukas Haraslin could start ahead of Jeremie Boga.
Sassuolo’s probable starting XI vs Inter (4-2-3-1): Consigli; Toljan, Chiriches, Peluso, Rogerio; Magnanelli, Lopez; Traore, Djuricic, Haraslin; Raspadori.
