Injury crisis for Inter Milan ahead of the match against Barca

Right before the Champions League encounter against the Garnet and the Blue, Simone Inzaghi’s team is facing an injury crisis and it can haunt them as they have to go into this high-pressure matchup without their most Pivotal players.

Injury crisis for Inter Milan ahead of the match against Barca

Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku are out of this fixture, while Lautaro Martinez is doubtful as well. If you can’t get a hint of how troublesome this can turn out for them, Lukaku has the highest goal creating actions for them and him on the sidelines will ultimately reduce their input.

Marcelo Brozovic also is a very potent midfielder- a good anchor, disruptor, and distributor, and with scary long shots up his sleeve. Without him, their Midfield will lack the same defensive stability and intensity and it will be interesting to see how they cope up without him.

As for Lautaro Martinez, he may or may not participate in the match as of now, but he is by far the most crucial piece of Internazionale’s jigsaw as he racks the combined highest non Penalty XG for them – 0.42 per 90 which is the same as Edin Dzeko while being a mobile and creative outlet in the front two striker pairing.

This is what Simone Inzaghi said about Lautaro Martinez in his pre-match press conference.

“Lautaro Martinez has a lot of muscular fatigue, we have done a medical exam and he will train this afternoon. We will evaluate him and make a decision on whether he can start from the start, be a substitute, or cannot play.”

All of these woes can potentially swing the favor in the favor of the La Blaugrana, or do they have a surprise up their sleeve?
