In this month Inter are expected to have six league games in twenty-two days against Bologna, Sassuolo, Cagliari, Naples, Spezia and Verona. A tour de force important, if not decisive, in the race to the Scudetto.

The latter, however, remains in doubt and can be replaced in the starting lineup by Frog. In any case, the only sure thing unavailable for Saturday night’s trip to the stadium From the Ara is D’Ambrosio Besides Vidal, recovering from knee surgery.
The three Italian nationals Sensi, Barella and Bastoni tested negative on rapid tests. Today they trained individually to Pinetina of Appiano Gentile, where they have never been in contact with the rest of the group in closed spaces.
