How Inter Milan could line up for their first game back

Sports Mole looks at how Inter Milan could line up for their first game back against Napoli.

Inter Milan will be looking to book their spot in the final of the Coppa Italia when they face Napoli in the second leg of their semi-final on June 13.

Antonio Conte's side have work to do if they are to progress as Napoli hold a 1-0 advantage from the first leg of their last-four clash at San Siro back in February.

Inter have not been in action since losing 2-0 to Juventus in Serie A on March 8 due to the coronavirus outbreak, but European football is slowly returning following a lengthy absence.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Inter could line up for their first game back.


POSS INT XI vs. NAP

Out: Daniele Padelli (suspension)

Daniele Padelli will be unavailable for Inter through suspension, but Conte's squad is otherwise in excellent shape heading into the second leg of their semi-final.

Experienced defender Diego Godin was left on the bench against Juve last time out but is expected to return to the XI for this match, while Christian Eriksen could also earn a spot in the starting side.

On-loan Manchester United attacker Alexis Sanchez is another option having overcome an ankle injury, although it is unlikely that either Romelu Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez will be left out in the final third of the field.

Matias Vecino could be the player to drop out if Eriksen is handed a starting role, while Ashley Young will likely face pressure from Cristiano Biraghi for the spot on the left of a back five.

Marcelo Brozovic and Nico Barella should both keep their spots in midfield, though, and Stefan de Vrij and Milan Skriniar are both certain starters as part of a back three.
