Inter Milan duo Juan Cuadrado and Stefano Sensi will miss out on tomorrow’s Serie A clash with Empoli through injury.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who also report that Alexis Sanchez could start the match in attack.
Three Inter players had missed out on Wednesday’s Champions League group stage opener against Real Sociedad.
Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is back from injury. The Turk should start tomorrow.
However, the other two will not feature.
Cuadrado & Sensi Will Both Miss Empoli Clash Through Injury
Wingback Cuadrado missed the match against La Real with tendinitis.
This had also been a problem that the Colombian was dealing with during the international break.
So far, Cuadrado has not feature for Inter since the return from the break.
And the 35-year-old former Juventus, Chelsea, and Fiorentina veteran will not be in the squad for the Nerazzurri’s trip to Tuscany either.
Meanwhile, midfielder Sensi is also out with a muscle problem, specifically a strain to his thigh.
The 28-year-old is not part of Inter’s Champions League squad so would not have featured against La Real one way or the other. However, he also was not fit for that match.
Sensi could be ready to return in time for Inter’s Serie A match against his old team Sassuolo in midfweek.
But tomorrow, the Italian international will not play any part.
Alexis Sanchez Could Start In Place Of Lautaro Martinez
Meanwhile, Sky also report that Inter captain Lautaro Martinez could get a rest tomorrow.
The 26-year-old has started every one of the Nerazzurri’s matches so far in the campaign.
Martinez has gotten off to a blazing start to the season. He has scored six goals already in all competitions.
However, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi could decide to leave Martinez tomorrow.
If the Argentine drops out of the lineup, it will likely be Sanchez who starts in place of him.
