The time is approaching for Simone Inzaghi’s Inter to take the field again in the Champions League. Il Biscione is engaged with Porto at the San Siro in a first leg match for the round of 16 of the prestigious European competition set for Wednesday evening.
However, there are some doubts in the lineup for Inzaghi. While the Inter manager has clear ideas on the formation to send to the pitch, the only two doubts concern the midfield and attack. Onana returns to goal with a three-man back line of Skriniar, Acerbi and Bastoni making up the defense. Next to Barella and Calhanoglu in the middle, Mkhitaryan and Brozovic are competing for the last starting spot in the midfield. The wing backs will consist of Darmian on the right and Dimarco on the left.
The other question mark for Inzaghi, as he is expected to answer right at the last minute, is in attack between Lukaku and Dzeko: one of the two will look to support Lautaro Martinez.
INTER (3-5-2), Probable lineup: Onana; Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan/Brozovic, Dimarco; Lautaro, Lukaku/Dzeko.
PORTO predicted lineup: Costa; Mario, Pepe, Carmo, Sanusi; Franco, Eustaquio, Grujic, Pepe; Taremi, Namaso
