The probable lineups of Inter-Porto

The final day of the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 sees Inter and Porto face off. The Nerazzurri host the Lusitanians at the San Siro on Wednesday night, with kickoff set for 9 p.m. Fifteen lengths behind Napoli in the league, the Nerazzurri are looking to redeem themselves in Europe’s top competition but must watch out for the Dragons, who are coming off ten consecutive victories.

Inzaghi must clear two formation doubts: Brozovic or Mkhitaryan in midfield, Dzeko or Lukaku in attack. At the moment, the Armenian and the Bosnian seem to have the advantage. In defense Acerbi should get the better of De Vrij, while on the flanks will be Dimarco and Darmian, favored over Dumfries.

Conceiçao must do without Otavio: there will be Uribe in his place. In attack Pepê will be paired with bomber Taremi. In defense, the experienced Pepe will flank Marcano. Between the posts is Diogo Costa.

Likely lineups.

INTER (3-5-2): Onana; Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Dzeko, Lautato Martinez. All. Inzaghi

PORTO (4-4-2): Diogo Costa; Joao Mario, Pepe, Marcano, Zaidu; Uribe, Grujic, Eustaquio, Galeno; Pepê, Taremi. All. Conceiçao
