Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has decided to start Alexis Sanchez in attack and Carlos Augusto in defense against Genoa. This evening’s Serie A matchday 27 clash kicks off at 20.45 CET.

There are three changes to the team that beat Atalanta last week in this evening’s match.

Firstly, in attack it is Alexis Sanchez who starts. The 35-year-old former Arsenal and Manchester United forward comes back into the team.

Therefore, Marko Arnautovic drops to the bench.

Then in goal, it is Yann Sommer who starts.

Next, in defense it is Stefan de Vrij starting in the centre of a back three.

However, there is a change alongside the Dutchman. Benjamin Pavard keeps his place, but Alessandro Bastoni misses out due to suspension.

Accordingly, Inzaghi has opted to start versatile Brazilian Carlos Augusto on the left of the defensive line.

Thirdly in midfield, Inzaghi has not made any changes to the team that beat Atalanta.

Therefore it is the trio of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Kristjan Asllani, and Nicolo Barella who start. Hakan Calhanoglu is a notable injury absence.

Dimarco & Dumfries On The Flanks, Alexis Partners Lautaro In Attack

On the flanks, Inzaghi has made another change to the team from the Atalanta match.

Denzel Dumfries replaces Matteo Darmian on the right.

However, at left-wingback Federico Dimarco keeps his place.

Lastly, in attack, Inzaghi has decided to go with Sanchez, who had previously started against Lecce.

The Chilean therefore plays alongside Inter captain Lautaro Martinez.

Meanwhile, there are a couple notable names on the bench. Striker Marcus Thuram and defender Francesco Acerbi have both come back into the team from injury.

However, despite being in the squad, neither start this evening’s match.

Then, midfielder Davide Frattesi also has a place on the bench despite having picked up a knock against Atalanta.
