Inter Centerpiece Won’t Need to Miss Much More Time

Hakan Calhanoglu sat out the Real Sociedad clash due to muscle fatigue, and the tests revealed that it’s nothing more than that. The MRI ruled out a lesion or other major problems to his right adductor. It remains to be seen whether he’ll be ready for the weekend, but he won’t be out for long, SportMediaset informs.

The Nerazzurri will face Empoli on Sunday. Sassuolo, Salernitana, and Bologna are next on the schedule domestically. Instead, they’ll take on Benfica in the Champions League in two weeks.

Inter will be cautious with Calhanoglu to avoid major problems. His absence was felt on Wednesday. They struggled for most of the game against Real Sociedad. Lautaro Martinez rescued them late.

Kristjan Asllani replaced the Turk but didn’t have a good showing. Henrikh Mkhitaryan moved there for a while after Davide Frattesi came in. The Nerazzurri closed the tilt with a 3-4-1-2 scheme with Alexis Sanchez in the hole after taking out the Armenian veteran too.

Our Take on Inter and Calhanoglu

They had the luxury of having him and Marcelo Brozovic last season, so it was no problem when one was missing. Unfortunately for them, Asllani is struggling to find his footing and hasn’t lived up to the hype yet. The upcoming games are pretty easy, so they shouldn’t rush his return. The prodigy will probably get other chances, but it might not be long before they test Davy Klaassen there.
