Brozovic To Start & Mkhitaryan To Be Benched In Inter Milan Vs Juventus Serie A Clash, Italian Media Report
Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic will start in this evening’s Serie A match against Juventus, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan to be the player to drop to the bench to make way.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Armenian will be given a rest from the start with Brozovic to retain his starting place from the Nerazzurri’s last Serie A match away to Spezia.
Brozovic had started against Spezia, but dropped to the bench for last Tuesday’s Champions League round of sixteen second leg away to Porto.
According to the Gazzetta, the 30-year-old will start this evening in the Derby d’Italia against the Bianconeri.
Mkhitaryan is set to be given a rest after having been virtually everpresent in the Nerazzurri’s lineup since the start of January, whilst Nicolo Barella and Hakan Calhanoglu are predicted to start either side of Brozovic in midfield.
The Gazzetta’s complete predicted eleven for the match is as follows:
Inter (3-5-2): Onana; Darmian, De Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Dimarco; Lukaku, Lautaro.
