The wait is almost over: after winter break and a Coppa Italia match, Inter are ready to resume Serie A after closing 2018 with two big wins over Napoli and Empoli. Luciano Spalletti will not have Keita Balde and it is unfortunate because the Senegalese is one of our most in form players. That being said, the former coach of Roma will get to count on a rejuvenated Radja Nainggolan again after Christmas holidays.
Versus the black beast that is Sassuolo this weekend, D’Ambrosio should be the favorite option over Sime Vrsaljko while the central pair of Skriniar and De Vrij should remain unchanged. In the attack, Politano and Perisic will occupy the wings while Nainggolan will compete with Joao Mario for a starting position. At the moment, there is not a real favorite in this due according to Sky.
