Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez is likely to get a rest in tomorrow evening’s Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews. The broadcaster anticipate that Marcus Thuram and Alexis Sanchez will be the duo to start the group stage match in attack.
One thing that looks clear is that former Arsenal and Manchester United veteran Alexis Sanchez will start tomorrow.
The Chilean has not started in either of Inter’s two most recent Serie A matches.
However, Sanchez had started in the first of two group stage clashes with Salzburg two weeks ago.
And it was he who opened the scoring in a 2-1 win for Inter at the San Siro.
And tomorrow, Inter will face the Austrian champions on their home turf.
According to Sky, it is certain that Sanchez will get another chance to shine against the same opposition.
But the big question could be who partners the 34-year-old in attack.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will certainly want to give one of his two starting strikers a rest.
Martinez and Thuram have led the line together from the start against both Roma and Aatalanta in the league.
And in fact, the duo have each started in the majority of Inter’s matches so far this season.
But Inzaghi hardly wants to run the starting strike pair into the ground.
However, it’s not as though Marko Arnautovic will be fit to start, even if he is back. And even if the Austrian could start, Inzaghi would likely want at least one of his first-choice starting strikers on the pitch.
At the San Siro, it had been Martinez who partnered Sanchez from the first minute against Salzburg.
But according to Sky, tomorrow it will be Thuram.
Martinez will be the player who Inzaghi decides to give a relatively rare chance to catch his breath.
