Denzel Dumfries could potentially make his first Inter start next week against Real Madrid in the Champions League, according to a report in the Italian media today.

As has been reported by Tuttosport, it is likely that he will still be rested against Sampdoria so that he can remain fresh and be unleashed against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Matteo Darmian could be the player that Simone Inzaghi chooses to handle the right hand side of the pitch against Sampdoria in Serie A on Sunday.

Simone Inzaghi could be forced to play a much weaker team than normal against Sampdoria due to players returning late from international duty among confusion around coronavirus restrictions.

Joaquin Correa and Lautaro Martinez will not be back in Italy until Friday afternoon so Edin Dzeko will likely be the starting striker with Stefano Sensi playing just behind him.

The rest of the squad should be available to the coach.
