UPDATE: Inter will start Bastoni at the back, Biraghi on the left and Gagliardini in place of Agoume. Valero is still set to start in the Pivote role.
Inter will put its faith in youth as they’re without Brozovic and Lautaro due to suspension. Agoume and Esposito will come in, with Valero shifting the pivote role in the centre of midfield.
Lazaro is expected to start at left wingback with Godin slotting in behind to provide cover. Keep an eye on the Lazaro-Agoume axis down the left hand side. That’s a pretty inexperienced fulcrum (Lazaro playing down the left rather than his natural right). Perhaps Conte didn’t want to risk a triple-dip of inexperience by playing Bastoni behind the young pups further upfield.
