Inter vs Monaco: tactics, team news, and prediction
Inter will be looking to once again give chance to their new players who have joined the club. Inzaghi is experimenting with some attacking patterns and new formations that he can use in the upcoming season. Inter are trying to be unpredictable by playing with different setups. The new signings have helped Inzaghi to make changes to his usual lineup. Skriniar is likely to miss out again as he has a hamstring injury.
AS Monaco recently signed Minamino from Liverpool and have an already lethal attack. Volland, Yedder, and Minamino can form a deadly partnership up front and will test Inter’s defense. In the second half, both teams will look to make changes and give chance to their young academy players.
The Nerazzurri have a much better squad but Monaco can hurt them with their lethal attack.
Inter Milan 3-1 AS Monaco.
