Team News: Inter Milan

Inter Milan secured all three points against Monza in Round 1 of Serie A with a brilliant brace from Lautaro Martinez. Argentine forward gave Inter the lead in just the eighth minute and extended the score in the 76th minute for a 2-0 win.

Inter’s defender Matteo Darmian experienced a minor ankle injury in the initial round against Monza. However, Darmian has been participating in separate training sessions at the beginning of the week and is supposedly ready to make a return to the starting lineup in the upcoming Serie A match against Cagliari.

However, Francesco Acerbo is likely to stay out of the field for one more week. Given these updates, Manager Inzaghi is expected to bring the same lineup against Cagliari.

Predicted Inter Milan lineup (3-5-2):

Sommer; Darmian, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Thuram, Martinez

Will Francesco Acerbi play for Inter Milan?

Having observed Francesco Acerbi’s impressive loan performance, Inter made the decision to secure the defender on a permanent basis. However, Acerbi has yet to make an appearance this season due to a calf injury he sustained during the preseason.

As he continues to contend with muscle fatigue, he will not be accessible for the upcoming match against Cagliari. Nevertheless, Acerbi’s return to action is anticipated in the following week’s fixture against Fiorentina.
