Antonio Conte is debating who to start at three different positions as the boss looks set to rotate ahead of Inter’s midweek clash with Dortmund, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. Alessandro Bastoni is set to start ahead of Diego Godin in defence, with Robert Gagliardini coming into midfield to replace the injured Stefano Sensi. Conte is still debating whether Lautaro Martinez or Matteo Politano should start alongside Romelu Lukaku.
Losing Sensi along with Alexis Sanchez and Danilo D’Ambrossio will tell us a lot about Conte’s side as genuine title challengers. Juventus have a much deeper side. Conte must hope his side can maintain its title relevancy until reinforcements can arrive in January.
Speaking of, rumours this week linked Inter with want-away Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic, which would continue the new-found friendship that has seen Lukaku and Sanchez trade Old Trafford for San Siro.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Gazzetta dello Sport that he and Antonio Conte would “get along well together” ahead of the 38-year-olds likely return to Italy in January.
