Inter Milan defenders Benjamin Pavard, Francesco Acerbi and Alessandro Bastoni should all feature in the starting formation against Torino this weekend.
The Granata will host the Nerazzurri at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on Saturday. The kickoff is at 18:00 CET.
According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will thrust a trio of international players at the back.
Pavard should slot in on the right side of the back three. The Frenchman is coming off a thrilling international break.
Les Bleus secured qualification for Euro 2024 with a 2-1 win over the Netherlands. The former Bayern Munich man was then the author of an unlikely brace in the friendly against Scotland.
On the other hand, Bastoni and Acerbi found less success during the break. They both struggled at the back as Italy suffered a 1-3 defeat at the hands of England at Wembley on Tuesday night.
Nevertheless, the Azzurri duo remain instrumental pillars in Inzaghi’s tactical jigsaw.
As for the other departments, Denzel Dumfries and Federico Dimarco will once again start on the wings in the 3-5-2 formation.
In the middle of the park, Hakan Calhanoglu will operate as a deep-lying playmaker. Henrikh Mkhitaryan should also start.

Nonetheless, the main dilemma for Inzaghi will be choosing between Nicolo Barella and Davide Frattesi.
The manager will eventually pick between them either following today’s training session or tomorrow morning’s muscle warm-up.
Both players started in Italy’s defeat in London. But as we reported yesterday, Barella seemed to be exhausted, so Inzaghi could decide to rest him.
