Lukaku To Start & Brozovic To Be Benched For Inter Milan Vs Juventus Serie A Clash, Italian Broadcaster Reports
Inter striker Romelu Lukaku is set to start in the Nerazzurri’s Serie A match against Juventus tomorrow evening, whilst midfielder Marcelo Brozovic will be left out of the starting eleven.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCinterNews, who report that Lukaku will start alongside Lautaro Martinez in attack, whilst Brozovic will be benched in favour of Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
In a number of areas of the pitch, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will have few selection decisions to make, as some injuries have meant that the back three and wingback positions have limited options.
Accordingly, Sky report that there is little doubt whatsoever that in the absence of Milan Skriniar and Alessandro Bastoni through injury, the back three will be made up of Francesco Acerbi, Stefan de Vrij, and Matteo Darmian.
In the wingback positions, Denzel Dumfries and Federico Dimarco will be the two starters, with Robin Gosens out injured.
The two areas of the pitch where Inzaghi will have to make a decision are in midfield and in attrack.
Centrally, the coach is set to go with what has become the first-choice trio of Mkhitaryan, Hakan Calhanoglu, and Nicolo Barella, with Brozovic set to be on the bench.
Meanwhile, in attack it is set to be Lukaku who lines up alongside Martinez rather than Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa, according to Sky.
