Denzel Dumfries & Matias Vecino Favourites To Start For Inter In Shakhtar Clash, Italian Media Report

Two main selection dilemmas remain for Inter coach Simone Inzaghi in today’s Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk, with Denzel Dumfries the slight favourite to start on the right ahead of Hakan Calhanoglu and Matias Vecino potentially set to start ahead of Hakan Calhanoglu.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who reports that the Nerazzurri coach will make his selections and could make two changes from the match against Atalanta over the weekend.

Matteo Darmian has started the Nerazzurri’s last two games in Serie A after Dumfries made his first start for the club since joining from PSV in the summer against Bologna.

However, the Dutchman could play from the start against Shakhtar, though it remains to be seen if Inzaghi will hand him the start ultimately opt for Darmian again, with Dumfries slightly favoured.

Meanwhile, Vecino impressed with his appearance off the bench against Atalanta having also played well against Bologna, and he could also start in place of Calhanoglu, though the Uruguayan could be experiencing some fatigue though he is the slight favourite.

Joaquin Correa and Arturo Vidal are both in the squad having returned from injuries, but both are set to start on the bench.
