There's no way to clinch top spot with this fixture so I'm keen to see a really heavily rotated side. Would be good if Salzburg does us a favour so that we only need a draw on the 12th December.

Do we finish first if we lose to Benfica, but win vs Sociedad? Either way I predict a draw in Benfica.

Yeah, we'd finish on level points and would have the H2H advantage over Sociedad.

Yes, head2head is considered first.

Yes. We will be with even points but with better stats in the direct matches.

I want a heavy rotation too as this game is not so important. Asllani, Frattesi, Bisseck, Arnautivic, Augusto. Field them all.

We could lose for all I care as long as we heavily rotate as IM21 posted. Give that indonesian dude his first start, bisseck, Asllani, Cuadrado, Arnautovic, Sanchez(injured?), augusto, klaassen, frattesi some minutes. I wouldn't even oppose to Sarr starting if Sanchez isn't fit.

Win not only for point but also bonus money and overall ranking point.
True but Serie A winning guarantees pot1 and much more money. 3 points against Napoli is more decisive.

Juve 1st then their rolling 1-0s streak is nonstop. They arent getting tired.

I normally have to leave work early to catch CL matches. Based on that lineup, that won't be an issue this time.
Yeah this is a rare opportunity for me to miss an Inter game and watch or do something else.

Sadly no more pot 1 for winning Serie A next season, pots will be based on UEFA club coefficient ranking, pot 1 has title holder and top 8 teams (we’re currently 6th).

We would have €2.8m per win vs €930k for a draw, then we also receive money based 10 years coefficient ranking pool as well (max €36.38m). Winning Serie A does help on getting market pool money through (40% vs 20% for 3rd last year)


I don’t say we must win but yeah should always aim for a win if we can.
