Carlos Augusto will start in defense for Inter Milan in Monday evening’s Serie A clash with Udinese.

This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews. Sky report that defenders Alessandro Bastoni and Stefan de Vrij are doubts for Monday’s match.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has a bit of a dilemma in defense for Monday’s match.

According to Sky, both Bastoni and de Vrij are doubts for the trip to Udinese.

The Italian international picked up a slight thigh problem during yesterday’s training session. And de Vrij, meanwhile, is coming back from a thigh strain that he suffered during the international break.

Sky report that both of Bastoni and de Vrij did not train with the rest of the squad today.

The pair worked on their recoveries individually.

Therefore, there is some doubt regarding whether either will be available against Udinese.

Tomorrow will be the decisive day for Inter coach Inzaghi to decide whether either or both of Bastoni and de Vrij will be part of the squad for Monday’s match.

Then, even if the duo are in the squad, they are not likely to start.

Therefore, Inzaghi will have to sort out the back three without either of Bastoni or de Vrij.

Carlos Augusto To Start For Inter Vs Udinese

According to Sky, Inzaghi has already decided on the solution that he will go with in Monday’s match.

The coach will give the nod to former Mozna wingback Augusto.

The Brazilian has already started on the left of the back three several times this season.

Augusto’s versatility has certainly been an asset to Inzaghi in that sense.

And according to Sky, the coach will once again use the 25-year-old in that role.

That means that Federico Dimarco will start on the left flank.

And both Bastoni and de Vrij will have the chance to rest, at the very least, from the start.
