Hope our players return healthy, we should give some subs chance in this match cause Madrid game. Handa-Skriniar, DeVrij, Darmian-Dumfries, Vecino, Brozo, Sensi, DiMarco-Sanchez, Dzeko.

Against Madrid:Handa-Skriniar, DeVrij, Bastoni-Darmian, Barella, Brozo, Vidal(if he continues his great form) , Perisic(DiMarco, same as Vidal)-Cahla-Correa.

Of course if Dumfries begin to show quality then he could be the man for starting 11 vs Madrid.

So are South-American countries in Italy's red list? What is the quarantine period for people coming from red list countries? Or non-red list countries? Real match is indeed next Wednesday from this match and NT games are played like 2.5 days before this match (in European time, in Thu-Fri night).

And will this match be scheduled to Saturday as we play CL next week (although it is Wednesday and not Tuesday)? Imagine those clubs who play Tuesday and have South-American NT players.

Sanchez rumoured to be available for this one.

We also 100% should not send any of the South Americans out, red list or no.

Is it confirmed which of our players are travelling and which would potentially miss matches after coming back (as well as how many matches)

we need to see Sensi back as a left CM in this match. Hakan might be able to play there but Sensi is more suitable esepecially when the opponents pressing high and execute man to man marking. his dribbling and intelligence will come in handy to get out of the situation. Hakan typicaly is more impactfull when he is nearby the penalty box or moves upfront a bit.

For whatever reason we haven't published a list of INTERnationals this time.

Bastoni, Barella and Sensi were called up by Italy. Dumfries and De Vrij for Netherlands. Vidal and Vecino posted photos of themselves in planes so.. there goes any hope we would follow the EPL in blocking travel to South America :palm:

CAS already ruled against it so we can't do anything anyway.

The best thing we can do is trying to reach some agreements with the federations so they will limit the minutes these players will play etc...

Problem is that the World Cup is round the corner and games need to be played soon. It was something we were aware and something that we have to cope with.

Players will return to normal from 2023-24 season and on.

Off to a flying start and will be nice if we can keep the momentum going.

Don't know all that much about Sampdoria.

Who are their best players? Their preferred formation?

They changed the coach in the summer by replacing Ranieri with D'Aversa, ex-Parma coach, so not sure what to expect. So far the new coach has used 4-2-3-1 and 4-4-2. Their most dangerous players are the GK, Audero, Quagliarella and Darmsgaard. Ekdal also is a decent midfielder. Special mention to Candreva as this club has the ex player curse. They have started the season poorly. Loss against Milan and a draw against Sassuolo. They have yet to score a goal but they have conceded just one goal so you can imagine what type of a game to expect from them.

Well I can tell you a thing about Sampdoria, sometimes the best player is the most paid player but not in Sampdoria.

Forced out ?

Quagliarella has been out form in the past two games I watched. Ekdal, Damsgaard and Verre have been decent. Surprisingly Candreva was effective vs Sassuolo. Their defense was decent last match as well especially Colley, Yoshida and to lesser extent Berezynski.

Sampdoria have some good players and will pose a threat to us for sure, will be our hardest game yet due to post international break and of course when teams play Inter they up there tempo.

Although no one will agree with me here Candreva (an ex player) will be a big threat, Damsgaard/Audero/Ekdal are good players too. There a good team, will be up for a fight and we may be missing key players.

I'm feeling 2-0 right now for us.

Has the time been confirmed yet? In any case it will neither be CET (we are still on CEST) nor 02:00 (most likely 14:00)
