Young defender Yann Bisseck will make his full debut for Inter Milan in this evening’s Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper anticipate that Denzel Dumfries will be on the bench and Bisseck will start.
Bisseck has yet to make a start for Inter.
In fact, the German has only made two appearances, both as a late substitute.
Therefore, Bisseck has only played a handful of minutes over the first few months of the season.
This was always likely to be the case. Even if the 22-year-old will have perhaps hoped for a little more of a role in the team, it is not as though Inter signed him to become an instant fixture in the starting lineup.
But now, it looks as though Bisseck’s time has come.
Yann Bisseck To Make First Start For Inter Vs Salzburg
Benjamin Pavard is currently out with an injury.
The Frenchman’s absence already leaves Inter a little light in the defense.
However, the Nerazzurri do have Matteo Darmian who can more than ably cover in Pavard’s position in the back three.
But Pavard is not the only injury absence for Inter this evening.
Juan Cuadrado will also be out against Salzburg. The former Chelsea and Juventus wingback has been missing from the squad since the end of the October international break.
And now, it looks as though Denzel Dumfries could also drop out of this evening’s starting eleven.
It is not as though the 27-year-old will be out of Inter’s squad altogether. He is not dealing with a major injury.
But there are questions about match-fitness. Dumfries has been playing a lot of minutes recently in the demanding wingback role, particularly with Cuadrado out.
Therefore, the Gazzetta report, it looks very likely that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi will leave the Dutchman out.
That means that the time has come for Bisseck to get his opportunity in the starting eleven.
The Germany Under-21 international will start on the right of Inter’s back three, the Gazzetta report.
