The Nerazzurri will look to get back to the winning ways in Serie A in Inter vs Lecce. Inzaghi’s men have been inconsistent this season and the Italian manager has been on the receiving end of criticism for poor form in recent games. The Nerazzurri lack intensity against smaller oppositions, and Inzaghi has to motivate his players for these games. They now host similar opposition, Lecce, who are enjoying a good run of form as they have lost only one game in their last four matches.
Marco Baroni’s side took points from AS Roma and Atalanta, so they will be optimistic about coming to San Siro. Also, their deep backline will frustrate Inter and will expose their weakness on the counter. The Nerazzurri will have to maintain their shape and be patient with their build-up to find gaps and disrupt their backline. They can not afford to lose another game, as it will take them off the top three positions.
Inter vs Lecce Serie A: team news, tactics, and prediction
Dzeko could get a nod for this game, as Lukaku started against Bologna and was not impressive. The Belgian striker is still working to get back to match fitness and can be more effective from the bench. Brozovic’s return to the lineup has given Inter the steel in the midfield. Gosens will start again on the left as Dimarco has a muscular fatigue issue. Skriniar has been sidelined due to an abdominal injury, and Darmian will fill his void again. While Correa will take time to recover from his thigh injury.
For Lecce, Pongracic is still out and Joan Gonzalez is pushing for a start. They will again rely on their defense, and their regista Hjulmmand, who has four assists this season. While Strefezza has scored seven goals.
The Nerazzurri are playing after a week’s rest, so they should approach this game with intensity.
Inter Milan 2-1 Lecce.
