Inter Milan duo Marko Arnautovic and Davy Klaassen are now under observation after failing to make the most of the opportunity against Benfica.
Simone Inzaghi decided to ring some changes to his starting line-up last night having already booked a spot in the Champions League Round of 16.
Therefore, the Nerazzurri boss unleashed a second-string line-up against the Eagles.
The Portuguese took full advantage in the first half. Joao Mario tormented his former employers by scoring a hat-trick.
However, the Nerazzurri forged a stunning comeback in the second period, ending the match 3-3. The Italians even had the chance to win it in the end.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the substitutes managed to redeem themselves in the second half.
The pink newspaper concludes that there’s life behind the regular starters at Inter, but perhaps not all of them.
The source notes that Arnautovic and Klaassen remain unconvincing, even if the Austrian scored the goal that kickstarted the uprising.
The report suggests that Inter could decide to revisit the market in January to rectify some of their summer miss-hits.
Inter Milan May Resort To The Market To Replace Marko Arnautovic & Davy Klaassen
Arnautovic is a 34-year-old striker who made his return to Inter 13 years after his original stint. The Nerazzurri bought him from Bologna in the summer.
As for Klaassen, he signed a deadline-day contract with the Italian giants as Ajax agreed to rescind his deal.
This was the 30-year-old’s second starting appearance since joining Inter. The Dutchman has yet to showcase his worth for the cause.
