Team News: Udinese
Leonardo Buta (Tibia Fracture) and Adam Masina (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing for Udinese gaffer Andrea Sottil.
It’s our opinion that Bianconeri Friuliani may well use the 5-3-2 system for this game featuring Marco Silvestri, Nehuen Perez, Rodrigo Becao, Jaka Bijol, Roberto Pereyra, Iyenoma Udogie, Sandi Lovric, Walace, Jean-Victor Makengo, Gerard Deulofeu and Beto.
Team News: Inter Milan
Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi has multiple availability issues to deal with. Gabriel Brazão (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Hakan Calhanoglu (Muscular problems), Dalbert (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Romelu Lukaku (Muscular problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We are inclined to think that Nerazzurri seem most likely to make use of a 5-3-2 system, choosing Samir Handanovic, Milan Skriniar, Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni, Denzel Dumfries, Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez.
We’re of the view that Udinese might have a difficult job to hit the back of the net against this Inter Milan team who we think should manage to score & go ahead.
We’ve gone for a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 win for Inter Milan at the end of the match.
