What I want is Perisic to finally have a great match and perform like we know! Its been too long. We need to be perfect on the sides with Pero and Poli. We will get plenty of chances during the night.

As long as the piece of wood called Candreva isn't playing, Inter should be fine.

This is an important game. A win and 6 points means we may just be a draw and another win away from qualifying.

Spalletti on formation:

"A change in formation against PSV? We've made some important steps in working on a 4-2-3-1, therefore, we'll continue on this path."

and Vrsaljko:


"Vrsaljko followed an individual training programme that led to the results we'd hoped for. He's trained two or three times with the team. I don't know how many minutes he has in his legs but he could be involved."

Even with UEFA restrictions our bench still looks somewhat able to turn the course of the game if things get south.

We clearly need one more midfielder elligeble for CL.

I predict a draw now that Vecino is starting. A midfield signing in January is an absolute top priority, central midfielder is probably even a bigger necessity than a trequartista.
Though I am going through a 12 hour shift today and it would be nice if we could win so that my day ends up on a positive note.

He just trashed Ajax 3-0, the same yesterday Ajax who outplayed Bayern in Germany..

Its gonna be very hard to get 3ts, but without this we are not going to progress.

Luciano Spalletti warns PSV Eindhoven “have the same character” as their Coach Mark van Bommel, but Inter won’t be content with a draw.

It kicks off on Wednesday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT), following on from the Nerazzurri’s comeback to beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1.

“PSV have a lot of qualities and are very strong physically. They have individual talents who can impact the game at any moment, because they interpret football the same way as their Coach Van Bommel,” said Spalletti in a Press conference.

“You can tell they have the same character he did as a player. They play good football in the Netherlands and I think PSV regret giving Barcelona too much of the initiative in the second half (of their 4-0 defeat).

We must be quick to put our ideas into action. We are improving at the moment and so will stick to the 4-2-3-1, which to a degree is also PSV’s tactical system.”

Considering Spurs are up against Barcelona, Spalletti was asked if he’d be content with a draw in Eindhoven.

I have never made this sort of calculation out of principle, but it also sends a bad message to the players if they see something like fear and no longer trust in their capabilities. I am sure we have the right approach to win the game, albeit taking into account the dangers of our opponents.

“The higher we climb, the deeper we need to breathe. It’s a very difficult game, but the last few wins have given us an important boost in terms of confidence and the strength it takes to wear this jersey.

“I have real professionals and intelligent people in my squad, so I expect them to be ready on a psychological level to read this game. The biggest danger is ourselves and we need to take action. We’ve got what it takes to be here and we fought so hard to earn this opportunity.”

There were reports that Milan Skriniar would be re-routed to right-back with Joao Miranda in the centre of defence.

“I can confirm Skriniar will not play on the right,” assured Spalletti. “Danilo D’Ambrosio is fine and in perfect condition. Sime Vrsaljko had two training sessions and he is in the squad.”

The picture is clear: we are going for a win, guys. Starters rested vs Cagliari and we need these kind of 3 points if we are to qualify. And I believe this time we mean it, unlike the Europa League.

Different matches, different players so you can't compare this. Ajax played very badly against PSV and very very good yesterday. Nothing to compare.

We should win this, if we want to finish 2th or 1th you should take points in away games. Barcelona and Spurs would be much harder to take points from. Let's not pretend PSV is on the same level as the other clubs in the group.

A win here and one good result against Barca and we'll be flying high. Everything looks like it's going in our favour.

SPAL beat Parma who beat Inter who beat Tottenham who thrashed Manchester United 3-0. So fuck PSV, we should worry about the weekend.

This alone should be enough incentive for Icardi and Inter to detroy PSV.

I'd still want to see Inter humilating Barca in Milan.
