Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi could unleash his own version of the Dutch Trio against Salernitana, which includes Stefan de Vrij at the back.

While it certainly wouldn’t be as glamorous as AC Milan’s Dutch Trio in the late 1980s (Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard, and Ruud Gullit), the Nerazzurri’s Netherlands international can offer important rotation options.

The Serie A leaders have now opened a seven-point gap from their closest chasers Juventus. They also have an extra match in hand.

Therefore, Inzaghi will be looking to rotate his lineup against Salernitana who lie at the bottom of the Serie A table.

This would allow some of the club’s top stars to regain their energy levels ahead of the Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, de Vrij will start at the heart of the backline.

This will be a compulsory change rather than a rotational option, as Francesco Acerbi misses out with an injury.

Inter Mian Dutch Trio Stefan De Vrij, Denzel Dumfries & Davy Klaassen To Start Vs Salernitana

Moreover, Denzel Dumfries will finally earn a starting berth. The wingback has only been featuring as a second-half substitute since making a return from injury in January.

The 27-year-old will thus replace Matteo Darmian who has been playing non-stop since early December.

Finally, Davy Klaassen could receive a rare chance to start.

Inzaghi is reportedly looking to rest Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but Davide Frattesi might not be fit enough to start. The Italian skipped last week’s clash against AS Roma with a muscular problem.

Therefore, the manager will likely resort to the former Ajax midfielder.

This would be the 30-year-old’s second start in Serie A, and fourth across all competitions this season.
