Inter Milan Trio Backed To Start Serie A Clash Vs Fiorentina
All of Inter wingback Robin Gosens, midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, and striker Romelu Lukaku will start in the Nerazzurri’s Serie A match against Fiorentina tomorrow evening.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the trio will all be entrusted to play from the start as the Nerazzurri go in search of three points on their return to Serie A action.
On the left flank, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi could have his hand forced somewhat by injury.
Federico Dimarco has been confirmed as not being fit to start based on what was seen in training today, and this leaves Gosens as the one specialist left-wingback who can start in the position.
The German former Atalanta man had shown good form in a few appearances prior to the international break, although he had missed out on the Nerazzurri’s last two matches before the break.
However, the 28-year-old spent the break recovering from his muscle problem, and made his return to training earlier this week, so he will be fit to start on the left against La Viola.
Meanwhile, in the regista position it will be another choice where injury forces Inzaghi’s hand, as Hakan Calhanoglu will miss tomorrow’s match after the club confirmed that the 29-year-old has suffered a thigh strain.
It is certainly the more experienced Brozovic who will get the chance to start, ahead of Kristjan Asllani.
Lastly, in attack it looks to be Lukaku who will lead the line alongside Lautaro Martinez.
The Belgian comes into tomorrow’s match off the back of an outstanding international break in which he scored four goals across two EURO 2024 qualifiers against Sweden and Germany, form which he could hope to carry over for his club.
The Corriere’s complete predicted eleven is as follows:
Inter (3-5-2): Onana; Darmian, De Vrij, Acerbi; Dumfries, Barella, Brozovic, Mkhitaryan, Gosens; Lukaku, Lautaro.
