The Nerazzurri will end their pre-season with Inter vs Villarreal on Saturday night. They have had an average pre-season so far as they conceded more goals than expected. Inzaghi was missing Skriniar for the majority of the games and had to use Darmian at the center-back position. This shows that Skriniar is vital to Inter’s defense. The Nerazzurri also missed a lot of chances in front of the goal, but the players are getting back in shape and that are can be improved.
Villarreal were brilliant last season as they went into the Semi-finals of the Champions League. They are enjoying their form in pre-season as well and are unbeaten so far. Unai Emery has developed the team, and the players follow his tactics religiously. They have signed Pepe Reina on a free transfer as their backup keeper cost them the match against Liverpool. The Spanish side beat Dortmund in the pre-season and are looking good for this season.
Inter vs Villarreal: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi will have a full squad to his disposal and can use his preferred eleven in his last pre-season game. The Italian tactician can start Skriniar and Gosens as they have got enough training sessions under their belt now. Dimarco has been doing well on the left flank as seen in the Lyon game and can get another start. Onana needs time and games to settle in the team so he could start as well.
Unai Emery has no injury issues in his camp and will start the similar side that beat Levante in the last game. After various clubs linked to Pau Torres Villarreal have managed to keep him, he will play a key role in stopping Lukaku. While Inter will have to keep an eye on Parejo as he can provide deadly passes to Moreno.
Villarreal are in good form and can hold Inter to a draw with Emery’s tactics against bigger oppositions.
Inter Milan 1-1 Villarreal.
