“Unless there is sensational twist, Nainggolan will be included on the team’s list for the game against Empoli.”
This was reported by the Corriere dello Sport which then added that “it is difficult, however, to see him on the pitch from the first minute even if Spalletti will be without suspended Brozovic. In the midfield, there is uncertainty. The only sure starter is Joao Mario while natural replacement of Brozovic would be Borja Valero who started against Napoli. To complete it, it is easier to imagine Vecino rather than Gagliardini.
INTER (4-3-3): Handanovic; Vrsaljko, De Vrij, Skriniar, Asamoah; Vecino, Borja Valero, Joao Mario; Keita Baldé, Icardi, Perisic.
