Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez won’t take part in today’s friendly against RB Salzburg. However, his condition is far from concerning.

The Nerazzurri will take on the 10-time defending Austrian champions on their own turf, the Red Bull Arena Salzburg. The kickoff will be at 19:00 CET.

This will be the Italian club’s penultimate friendly of the pre-season. They will take on Egnatia on Sunday before opening their Serie A campaign against Monza on August 19.

However, Martinez will miss the friendly against Salzburg due to a slight muscle work overload.

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio revealed the news on his Twitter account via FcInterNews.

Nevertheless, the famous journalist and transfer market expert believes that the striker should overcome this issue and make himself available for the club’s Serie A opener.

Therefore, the Nerazzurri faithful shouldn’t be too concerned by the superstar’s condition.

This is a relieving update considering the importance of the 2022 World Cup winner to the club’s cause.
