Inter Milan duo Alexis Sanchez and Denzel Dumfries are closing in on starting berths in Monday’s Serie A fixture against Genoa.

After dismantling Atalanta on Wednesday night by four goals, the Nerazzurri now turn their attention to their upcoming clash against the Grifone.

Simone Inzaghi’s men have opened a 12-gap with their nearest chasers Juventus.

Therefore, the manager will likely opt to rotate his lineup against Genoa and possibly against Bologna as well. After all, a decisive clash awaits his team against Atletico Madrid on March 13th in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

So according to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Inzaghi could ring some changes to his formation on Monday.

The pink newspaper tips Alexis Sanchez to replace Marko Arnautovic up front. The Chilean veteran would start alongside club captain Lautaro Martinez.

The former Barcelona and Arsenal man has been impressing as of late, providing assists in back-to-back outings.

Moreover, Denzel Dumfries should return to the starting formation, taking over from Matteo Darmian. The two players have been sharing the right flank in recent months.

The third and final change will occur in the backline, and it will be mandatory due to Alessandro Bastoni’s one-match ban.

The source expects Carlos Augusto to play as a left centre-back behind Federico Dimarco who will operate on the wing as usual. The Brazilian would join Stefan de Vrij and Benjamin Pavard in the three-man defense.

Finally, Inzaghi will keep his midfield intact, especially with Hakan Calhanoglu and Davide Frattesi probably unavailable due to injuries.

Therefore, the manager should start with Kristjan Asllani playing in between Nicolo Barella and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

INTER PROBABLE XI (3-5-2): Sommer; Pavard, De Vrij, Carlos Augusto; Dumfries, Barella, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Sanchez, Lautaro.
