Ivan Perisic and Lautaro Martinez’s conditions are expected to re-evaluated ahead of the Derby clash with AC Milan this weekend. Both served internationally over the break with Croatia and Argentina respectively.

Perisic took an injury to his knee in Croatia’s loss to France. The injury leaves his appearance in question since we aren’t really sure of the severity of it. Given the short selection Antonio Conte and Inter are dealing with due to COVID, his absence could be difficult.

Lautaro played in Argentina’s 2-1 win over Bolivia at over 3000 meters above sea level. The reported risk at such a turnaround after playing at that sea level is a lack of strength overall and in particular in the legs. His evaluation is probabaly less concernign than Persisic’s.
