Simone Inzaghi has decided to start Davy Klassen in midfield, Benjamin Pavard in defense, and Carlos Augusto on the left for Inter Milan away to Salernitana this evening. The Serie A clash is scheduled for 20.45 CET.
First of all, the big news is that midfielder Davy Klaassen starts the match.
Davide Frattesi is out with an injury, along with Stefano Sensi. Meanwhile, Henrikh Mkhitaryan gets a rest.
Secondly, in defense Benjamin Pavard is back in the lineup on the right of the back three.
Stefan de Vrij and Francesco Acerbi complete the trio. Therefore Alessandro Bastoni drops out of the starting eleven for the first time this season.
Thirdly, on the flanks Carlos Augusto and Denzel Dumfries. Augusto gets his first start in Serie A, having also started against Real Sociedad in the Champions League.
Federico Dimarco, accordingly, begins on the bench at the Stadio Arechi.
Alexis Sanchez Takes The Place Of Lautaro Martinez In Attack
Fourthly, in midfield, Hakan Calhanoglu starts in the middle of the park. The Turk has started every match so far in Serie A for Inter.
Nicolo Barella keeps his spot in midfield alongside Calhanoglu. And it is Klaassen who completes the Nerazzurri’s three-man midfield.
Subsequently, up front, Argentina international forward Lautaro Martinez gets a rest.
Martinez is Inter’s captain and has started every match this season so far, across all competitions. However, Inzaghi gives his captain a rest.
But it’s Alexis Sanchez who gets his first start of the season, paring French international Marcus Thuram.
