According to Gazzetta dello Sport and SkySports, Ivan Perisic will not be in the lineup for tonight’s important fixture versus Salernitanta. The Croatian International hasn’t started from the bench for Inter since the Coppa Italia clash with Empoli in January. This will be a much-needed rest for him in view of the return leg versus Liverpool next Tuesday. In the past few games Perisic has not shown his best performances. Now Inzaghi hopes that a night off might work as a restart for the player.
The favorite to take his place in the lineup tonight is Mateo Darmian. However, Dimarco is also hoping to start as the visitors are expected to defend deep. Robin Gosens will probably also have some minutes in the second half, as Inzaghi wants to introduce him to the team as fast as possible. Gazzeta also reports that yesterday in training the coach tried a 3-4-1-2 with Alexis behind the strikers. Still, it is probably not a strategy that he would choose from the first minute tonight.
