Brozovic aiming for the Bayern Munich match to make his return. The Croatian midfielder had a serious thigh injury during the international break, but he is recovering rapidly. At first, Inter Milan thought they would not be able to use him till World Cup. But Brozovic is reportedly planning to return for the last Champions League group-stage game. Inter will play Plzen tonight and hope they qualify, so Inzaghi can rest some players against Bayern.
Many important fixtures are coming after the Bayern game as they face Juventus, and Atalanta in the league. Calhanoglu is performing well in his position, but Brozovic has the experience and physicality to play the number 6 role in big games. Inter have to be consistent domestically to have a chance in the title race. Victories against Juventus and Atalanta will improve their position as they are the direct rivals in the top four.
Brozovic aiming for the Bayern match to make his return from injury
The Nerazzurri have handled the Croatian midfielder’s injury well as Inzaghi is using Calhanoglu and Asllani. Also, Mkhitaryan has helped Inter to rotate the options in midfield as the Armenian midfielder has improved his game to start in big games. Inzaghi makes early substitutions to keep players fresh and gives them rest before any important game. Asllani is still young and inexperienced, and he will have to work on his decision-making.
Brozovic will remain out for the Plzen game tomorrow and the Sampdoria match in Serie A on the weekend. But he could start on the bench against Bayern and get some minutes under his belt to play again Juve and Atalanta. Inzaghi will have to rotate between Asllani, and Calhanoglu till then, he also has the option of Gagliardini, who has returned from his injury and can contribute in some games.
