The Nerazzurri will face arguably their toughest opponents this season as it’s Inter vs Bayern tomorrow night. After losing to Milan in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina, Inter will be looking to get back to winning ways. But they face one of the tournament favorites at home and will have to improve their defense to challenge the 2020 UCL winners.
The Nerazzurri have been placed in the ‘group of death’ as they will face teams like Bayern and Barcelona in the group stage. Inter cleared the group stages last time, and they also managed to beat the Champions League runners-up Liverpool at Anfield. So Inter will have some confidence when Bayern comes to the Meazza.
Bayern Munich are also coming into this game after a couple of draws in the Bundesliga. The German giants will be keen to start the Champions League with a bang. They will be ruthless in their approach after dropping points in recent games. They have lost Lewandoski in the summer but replaced him with Mane and upgraded their squad by adding Gravenberch, De Ligt, and Mazraoui.
Inter vs Bayern: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inter Milan will have to make some changes in their style of play to challenge Bayern. Inzaghi should try a more pragmatic approach, and keep his defense line low to prevent attacks. Players like Mane, Sane, and Gnabry can exploit the area behind Inter’s wing-backs.
Inzaghi has been training his team to be more aggressive in the match as he wants Inter to win every second ball. Bayern Munich will be up for the challenge as they are well-drilled and physical. Inter are planning to give Dzeko a start ahead of Correa.
For Bayern Munich, Goretzka came back after recovering from his injury, but he might not start. Musiala, who is in form, can partner with Khimmich, or Sabitzer could get a start. Inter will have to plan to defend the front three and keep an eye on Muller, who makes clever runs in the box.
The Nerazzurri will have to be solid defensively and clinical in attack when they get their chances. But it will be tough to beat the Bayern side, which looks more balanced.
