With two in form teams facing each other I would expect a good fight. Hope to see Pavard on the pitch again, with some of our regular starters getting a good rest.

Our squad can't catch a break ffs. So many difficult away games, where most of our rivals will drop points, but we won them all , apart Rube match. And now high flying Bologna , who has become a really strong team lately. They will put a strong team and I feel Inzaghi will too. On the weekend there's Lecce we could rotate there at the start.

Can't say no to a 10th Coppa Italia tbh.

It makes no sense put a strong lineup here had we rested 1/3 the team in Sociedad match. This is a must rest for those we don't have a replacement i.e. Acerbi, Darmian. Thuram and Lautaro can play partly as they are still young.

Don't have one.
The prospect of another milan derby where we trash them is the only thing I look forward to in this competition even more than another coppa trophy :lol:

I don't know if motta will rotate but i m expecting tough match, especially cos we have to give opportunity to bench players in this one.

Bologna's form in the league speaks itself. But once we're done with this, we'll be playing some easier matches in the league, so I don't think Inzaghi will be neglecting this match.

Augusto, Frattesi and Sensi should start as well. Can't afford any more injuries either, maybe some fitness game time for Pavard late.

Sommer-Bisseck, Acerbi, Augusto-Darmian, Frattesi, Asslani, Sensi, Dimarco-Arnautović, Lautaro. Play this. Dont give a fuck if we lose or not. I would sacrifice Coppa for Scudetto and CL. But no way Limone will sacrifice his most loveable competition.

I think if we can figure out a way for Acerbi to get some rest, we need to take it. Dude was starting to look really leggy against Immobile.

Not feeling good about Audero starting, but okay, it's an okay enough first team.

Hopefully Arnautovic improves with more minutes. Need something up front.

I think Inzaghi learned from the Benfica game, and wont make anymore such a heavy rotation to the team.

#Inter predicted XI to face Bologna in the Coppa Italia:Audero; Bisseck, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Frattesi, Asllani, Barella, Carlos Augusto; Lautaro, Arnautović.

This looks really logical and balanced.

Benfica? Not the only time. He did over-rotate in the FIRST match against Sociedad and the returning match as well.
Obviously 2nd star is the priority this season. Even CL is inferior, let alone Coppa.
