How Inter Milan could line up against SPAL

Sports Mole looks at how Inter Milan could line up in this weekend's Serie A clash with SPAL.

Inter Milan will continue their pursuit of Serie A leaders Juventus when they welcome SPAL this weekend.

Antonio Conte's side have taken 34 points from their 13 league matches this season to sit second in the table, just one point off the leaders and reigning champions Juve.

Inter will enter the match off the back of a 3-1 win at Slavia Prague in the Champions League on Wednesday night, which kept them firmly in the running to qualify for the last-16 stage of the competition.

The Milan giants have been victorious in each of their last four in the league, meanwhile, including an impressive 3-0 victory away to Torino last weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Inter could line up against their relegation-threatened opponents.


Out: Alexis Sanchez (ankle), Nicolo Barella (knee)
Doubtful: Kwadwo Asamoah (knee), Stefano Sensi (abductor)

Inter will once again be without the services of on-loan Manchester United attacker Alexis Sanchez due to an ankle injury, while Nicolo Barella is also unavailable due to a knee problem.

Kwadwo Asamoah could return to the squad following a spell on the sidelines, although Stefano Sensi continues to struggle with an abductor issue, leaving Conte short of options in midfield.

Borja Valero and Matias Vecino are once again expected to line up alongside Marcelo Brozovic in the middle of the park, with Milan Skriniar, Diego Godin and Stefan de Vrij at the back.

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have developed an impressive partnership in the final third this season, and the pair will again start as the front two in a 3-5-2 formation this weekend.

Cristiano Biraghi is also expected to hold off competition to feature as the left-sided wing-back.
