Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi and defender Francesco Acerbi will both be fit enough for the bench against Genoa.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

There have been a few doubts as far as player availability going into this evening’s match at the San Siro.

But it is now clear that at least a couple of players will be able to be part of the squad.

Firstly, there is midfielder Frattesi. The 24-year-old had been a major doubt following what looked to be an injury that he had picked up against Atalanta on Wednesday.

Frattesi had only spent about ten minutes on the pitch as a substitute.

And moreover, the former Sassuolo midfielder had scored a goal not long after coming on. But in the celebrations for his goal, Frattesi pulled up, indicating that he felt pain in his thigh.

This proved to be the result of an elongation of a thigh muscle.

Therefore, there was a lot of uncertainty regarding whether or not Frattesi would be able to be available tomorrow against Genoa.

But according to the Corriere, the midfielder trained normally yesterday. He completed a full session with the rest of the squad.

Not Just Frattesi – Acerbi Also Fit For Inter Vs Genoa

But Frattesi is not the only Italian international who made a return to training.

The wait for defender Francesco Acerbi to come back was quite a bit longer. The 35-year-old had been out for right around a month.

Acerbi picked up a calf injury during Inter’s Serie A win over Roma four weeks ago.

And there were no risks taken with the fitness of the veteran former Lazio and Sassuolo defender. He has been out on the sidelines since, with Stefan de Vrij starting in his place.

But Acerbi has finally regained full fitness.

The Italian international trained with the rest of his teammates yesterday.

Therefore, Acerbi will also be ready to be part of the Inter squad today.

However, that does not mean that Acerbi will start the match. It will still be de Vrij who plays in the middle of the Inter back three against Genoa.
