Injury bug, short rest after an emotional derby win, away fixture to a Spanish squad who played pretty well against Real Madrid. What could possibly go wrong? Hoping for a win, but escaping with a draw looks ok too. Forza Inter especially Asllani, if he starts!

Asllani is more than fine as Hakan's replacement. He's surrounded by quality and experienced players, plus our team seems to work very nice collectively.

Glad that Limone doesn't complicate things. But at the same time, hopefully Asllani will take his chance.

When/? after Brozo it was only Hakan and occasionally, Asllani.
Not last season. It was during Conte's times. It was just few games anyway.

Mikhitaryan regista? You guys are wild.

It will be Asllani as it should be. He needs to step up now and prove he belongs. This is his moment.

I expect mostly same setup as derby other than that and maybe Arnautovic/ Pavard ahead of Thuram/ Darmian.

More like Barella and then Frattesi on Barella position. In reality it will give a complete different outlook as Barella is obviously no real regista.

Asllani is a massive gamble in a game like this, but something have so far said that Inzaghi run the starter/ substitute in a very stringent way. Where most basically has one position and that’s it, So far it only really seem that Darmien and De Vrij will be used on more in the central defence.

But can be just an early season thing, definitely going to be worth keeping an eye on if he intend to run it that stringent all season or more flexibility will be introduced doing the season.

Darmian -> Pavard -> Bisseck

Acerbi -> De Vrij

Bastoni -> De Vrij/Darmian

Dumfries -> Cuadrado

Dimarco -> Carlos Augusto

Calhanoglu -> Asllani

Barella -> Frattesi

Mkhitaryan -> Sensi/Klaassen

Martinez -> Sanchez

M. Thuram -> Arnautovic

Last season I would agree but I am hoping this season's team is better than that. I want the dub.

He should. He's not just some random player that needs to take weeks to get a chance. He should start the match, and against Empoli too.
I love what Darmian has brought to this side. Arguably a masterclass signing that cost us almost nothing. That being said, Benji wasn’t bought for a sizeable fee (well for us anyways) to be a squad player. He’s meant to start.

Yeah I admire what Darmian is doing but Pavard is not supposed to be a bench player. He should be integrated into the first team ASAP and this is the right time to do it.

With Cuadrado out, Darmian can always get minutes from RWB position.

Barella can play as registra. He did in the past few times.

True. But that was under Conte. The only time he played as a regista in Inzaghi's system it was a disaster. Inter-Sassuolo 0-2.
