Beneamata’s technician is hotly contested

Tonight, Inter-Barcelona, valid for the third day of Group C, is staged at the San Siro. In fact, a first final for the Nerazzurri, who are second in the standings with the same points as the Blaugrana (three points apiece). By winning, Inter would move closer to the round of 16 goal.

Moreover, Inzaghi needs a win to ward off the specter of exoneration. The coach feels calm, but the latest, disappointing results have put him in a complicated condition to deal with. The result of the challenge with Xavi’s team could determine his future. In case of defeat, it would not be easy to keep him at the helm of Inter.

To beat Barcelona, Inzaghi should field Correa and Lautaro in attack (Dzeko on the bench). In midfield, room for Mkhitaryan, who should take Asllani’s place.
