Inter vs Benfica – Betting Analysis
For Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi, Dalbert (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Stefan de Vrij (Unknown Injury), Alessandro Fontanarosa (Unknown Injury), and Milan Skriniar (Back Trouble) will be out.
The 3-5-2 formation with Andre Onana, Matteo Darmian, Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni, Denzel Dumfries, Nicol Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Federico Dimarco, L. Javier Martinez, and Edin Dzeko appears to be what the Nerazzurri should employ.
Roger Schmidt, the manager of Benfica, must deal with a number of absent players. Julian Draxler underwent ankle surgery, Alexander Bah suffered a knee injury, and Mihailo Risti suffered a hamstring injury.
Our opinion is that Benfica will most likely choose a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Odisseas Vlachodimos, Gilberto, Nicolas Otamendi, António Silva, Alejandro Grimaldo, Fredrik Aursnes, Chiquinho, David Neres Campos, Rafa Silva, Joao Mario, and Goncalo Ramos as their starters.
In our opinion, Benfica can score goals against this Inter Milan team, but it might not be enough to prevent a loss.
