The Nerazzurri will play their third pre-season match tomorrow in RC Lens vs Inter. They are coming after a close 2-2 draw against Monaco as they came back after going 2-0 down in 30 minutes. Inzaghi has been trying a new formation, and they are looking good in attack. But Inter need cover in defense, and Inzaghi does not have all the center-backs at his disposal currently. Inter will be playing against some French teams this pre-season. They will face Lyon the next weekend.
RC Lens have been in great form so far in their pre-season. They are coming with a 3-1 win against Clermont Foot last weekend. The Fench side are unbeaten in their pre-season campaign with just one draw. Their last loss came on April 3 with Strasbourg. Lens have been solid defensively as they have three clean sheets in their last four games in the pre-season.
RC Lens vs Inter: team news, tactics, and prediction
Inzaghi will now have all players at his disposal as Skriniar has returned after recovering from his injury. But Gosens is a doubt for this fixture, so Dimarco or Lazaro can take his place on the left flank. Inter are now planning to keep Skriniar as he was linked with a move away to Paris Saint Germain. Inzaghi will look to try his 3-4-1-2 formation again as Lens are tough to break down defensively.
The Ligue 1 side will miss a couple of their players as Adam Buksa is out because of an ankle injury. While their keeper Farinez is out for a long time due to an ACL injury. They set up in a familiar back-three formation, so it will be interesting to see how Inter will match up against them.
Inter should win this match if they can find a way to break Lens’ defense.
RC Lens 0-2 Inter Milan.
