Fans met Alessandro Bastoni outside Nerazzuri training center earlier today. The Italian defender assured them that he hopes he can recover in time for the important clash versus Liverpool in 6 days. Bastoni also shared a picture in his Instagram profile with caption “I’ll be back soon ⚫️🔵”. His condition will be evaluated in the coming days before making a final decision. Still, it is expected that his participation will remain in doubt until the last days before the fixture.
Meanwhile, according to Sky Sport Italia, Inter are planning to appeal Bastoni’s two match suspension. The defender received the ban for insulting the referee after the derby versus Milan. Inter management hope the suspension will be reduced to one game. If the appeal is successful Bastoni will be available for the fixture against Sassuolo on 20.02.
