The Nerazzuri will seek consecutive wins in the UCL with Inter vs RB Salzburg tonight. The Nerazzurri will welcome the Austrian side, who managed to beat Benfica 2-0 on the Portuguese home soil but lost to Real Sociedad 2-0. Both the sides had an exciting encounter in the pre-season in the summer and Salzburg pose some problems in that game. However, Inter have built a fortress at home so it will be tough for Salzburg to take away a point.
Inter managed to marginally get over the line against Benfica with a 1-0 victory. The Nerazzurri captain, Lautaro Martinez missed several chances but it did not cost his side. The Argentine striker has been in terrific form this season, and Inzaghi would he continue as Inter are short of a forward now. Arnautovic will remain out for some time. However, Inter’s signing of the summer, Marcus Thuram has integrated into the squad perfectly. He scored the winner against Benfica in the last UCL game and was a goal scorer in Inter’s last game against Torino too.
Inter vs RB Salzburg UCL: team news, tactics, and prediction
RB Salzburg are struggling recently in their league, with only one victory in their last five. However, they will relish to play against a side like Inter. The Austrian side is sharp on the counter and will look to expose Inter’s defense during transition as they will sit deep. Meanwhile, Inzaghi will look to shake his lineup slightly as they will face AS Roma on the weekend.
Bastoni should return to the starting eleven by replacing De Vrij. The Italian defender will help Inter in creating overloads and can cross the ball in the box with accuracy. The Austrian side have several players out: Fernando, Sekou Koita, Bryan Okoh, Lukas Wallner, and Justin Omoregie. But Inter will have to be wary of their star striker Konate.
The Nerazzurri should continue with their good run of form and with Inzaghi’s knack of winning the cup games.
Inter Milan 3-1 RB Salzburg.
