Inter Milan coach, Antonio Conte, is likely to deploy Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah in the midfield trio against Barcelona on Tuesday, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The report details how Conte is forced to consider viable options in the Nerazzurri’s upcoming game against the Blaugrana in the Champions League, due to the injury crisis the club was currently experiencing.
Nicolo Barella, Stefano Sensi and Roberto Gagliardini are all unavailable for the game, forcing Conte to decide between 34-year-old Spaniard Borja Valero and Asamoah to complete the midfield trio, alongside Marcelo Brozovic and Matias Vecino.
Furthermore, Conte will have to decide whether to deploy Austrian midfielder Valentino Lazaro or Italian midfielder Cristiano Biraghi, on loan from Fiorentina, on the left side of the midfield.
For now neither is guaranteed to start, but Conte knows the importance of the game and so will deploy his strongest possible starting 11.
