Sheriff Tiraspol vs Inter: team news, tactics and score prediction
Inzaghi has no injuries issues for this game and he will be looking to deploy his best lineup. So De Vrij will return to the starting lineup in place of Ranocchia and Lautaro will replace Correa. Although the latter scored a brace against Udinese, Inzaghi would want to have Lautaro for this game. However, Lautaro could go off early as the Milan derby is coming up. Inzaghi might also replace Calhanoglu with Vidal as the Chilean scored a goal and provided an assist in their 3-1 win over Sheriff. He is also able to defend well and track back which will bring balance to the midfield.
For Sheriff, Lovro Bizjak is out due to injury, and Yansane and Boban Nikolov might miss the match as well. Sheriff might change their shape as Inter were able to open them easily in their last match.
Score Prediction: Sheriff Tiraspol 1-2 Inter Milan.
