San Siro obviously sold-out with about nine million takings

The Nerazzurri people are preparing to follow, attentively, the awaited first match between Inter and Atletico Madrid, valid for the Champions League round of 16. Obviously, San Siro will be sold-out with a record-breaking takings of about nine million euros. In short, no one wants to miss it. The challenge between Inzaghi and Simeone, former teammates at Lazio, really interests everyone.

Inzaghi, for his part, already has in mind the starting lineup to oppose the Colchoneros. Sommer between the posts. In defense, with Acerbi still in the pits due to injury (he is expected to return on Feb. 28, in the rematch against Atalanta), there will be de Vrij again, along with Bastoni and Pavard. On the flanks, Dimarco and Darmian return. No news in midfield with the trio Barella, Calhanoglu and Mkhitaryan.

Clearly, in attack, space for the starters, namely Thuram and Lautaro Martinez. The latter, scorer of 20 league goals (third Nerazzurri to score at least 20 goals in Serie A in three seasons in a row after Meazza and Nyers), is aiming to improve his score in the Champions League. In the group stage, Toro scored two total goals. On the other hand, Morata is doing everything to recover from injury and be in the game.
