Inter and Lazio Preparing Lineup Changes for Upcoming Clash

Inter and Lazio will not have full squads at their disposal for the Saturday showdown. Both coaches are looking for solutions to make up for their respective absences. Moreover, Simone Inzaghi could opt to bring the South Americans off the bench due to their late return from international duties.

Joaquin Correa picked up a small injury with Argentina. It is not believed to be anything serious, but he could miss the game against his former team, SportMediaset reports. The Inter coach will have to make the call on whether or not to start Lautaro Martinez. The Argentinians, Alexis Sanchez, Arturo Vidal, and Matias Vecino will land in Italy only late on Friday.

If the manager initially spared them, Inter could slightly tilt his scheme, making it a 3-5-1-1. Hakan Calhanoglu or Ivan Perisic would support Edin Dzeko, with either Federico Dimarco on the left flank or Roberto Gagliardini in the midfield. Stefano Sensi has almost completely shaken off his latest injury, a knee sprain, but he is unlikely to get the nod right away. He had started as a no.10 in a similar scenario at the beginning of the season.

Lazio received some good news today as Ciro Immobile was able to practice fully, Tuttomercatoweb reports. The striker skipped the Bologna fixture and international duties due to a minor thigh strain. Mattia Zaccagni was a full go as well following a hip problem and the flu. The Biancocelesti will not have Francesco Acerbi due to disqualification versus Inter. Stefan Radu is currently the favorite over Patric to replace him.
