Picking the Best Potential Internazionale Lineup to Face Benevento on Sunday

Inter are looking to get their second victory in the space of a week on Sunday, with the Nerazzurri travelling to the Stadio Ciro Vigorito to face Benevento on match day seven in the Serie A calendar.

Luciano Spalletti’s side are just two points off of top spot in the table, with both Napoli and Juventus sat head on 18 points, with perfect records.

Here’s how Spalletti could line up his team as he looks to put pressure on the early pace setters.

Goalkeeper

  • Handanovic

The 33-year-old Slovenian remains one of the best keepers in the Serie A and a certainty between the sticks on Sunday, barring a late injury.

Defence

  • D'Ambrosio

Inter are likely to stick with the same back four that earnt them a hard-fought win against Genoa last week, when right-back D’Ambrosio scored the only goal of the game at San Siro. 

Veteran Brazilian centre-back Miranda will keep his spot in the middle and will be partnered by summer signings Milan Skriniar and Dalbert.

Midfield

  • Valero

  • Brozovic

  • João Mário

?Matías Vecino was Inter’s only midfielder to complete the full 90 against Genoa last week and he could find himself on the bench for their trip to Benevento. 

Portuguese midfielder João Mário is likely to come back into the starting eleven for Spalletti, while Borja Valero and Marcelo Brozovic should retain their spots.

Inter’s front three is one of the finest in Italy. 

Antonio Candreva and Ivan Perisic provide a triple threat of  offer width, creativity and work rate to the Nerazzurri attack, while star striker and club captain Mauro Icardi will once again be tasked with finding the back of the net.

The former Barcelona youth teamer has registered six goals in as many appearances in Serie A this season.
