Inter Milan strikers Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram will have to share one spot up front during Saturday’s encounter against Bologna.

The Nerazzurri have a decisive clash against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16.

Therefore, Simone Inzaghi will be looking to rotate his starting lineup this weekend.

Even though Bologna have established themselves as one of the finest sides in Serie A, Inter can afford to drop points as they currently boast a healthy lead, with 15 points separating them from their closest chasers

So according to Sky Sport Italia via FcInterNews, only one between Thuram and Lautaro will start at the Renato Dall’Ara.

The Frenchman appears to be a more likely candidate for a starting berth alongside Marko Arnautovic.

This would be Thuram’s first start since sustaining a knock during the first leg against Atletico.

The former Borussia Monchengladbach man made his return to action as a second-half substitute against Genoa on Monday.

After showing positive signs during his cameo, Inzaghi could decide to field him from the start.

The France international would then make way for Martinez in the second half. The two regular starters would thus share playing time this weekend.

Moreover, the source considers Arnautovic as the favorite to start ahead of fellow veteran striker Alexis Sanchez.

The Chilean enjoyed a brilliant outing against Genoa, playing an instrumental role in the 2-1 win. He provided the assist for Kristjan Asllani’s opener before converting a spot kick.

However, Inzaghi feels he must continue to rotate his ranks to maintain fresh legs amidst the packed schedule.
