Inter Milan vs Salzburg Predictions & Match Preview

Inter Milan vs Salzburg Predictions & Match Preview

Inter is poised to seize the top spot in Group D by hosting Salzburg at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, aiming to overtake Real Sociedad.


The Nerazzurri recently cruised to a 3-0 victory against Torino in Serie A, bolstering their confidence for the upcoming clash with Salzburg. Lautaro Martinez, the prolific Argentine, is expected to pose a significant threat to Salzburg’s defense, given his recent goal-scoring prowess.

Wing-back Denzel Dumfries is vying for a starting position, while Marko Arnautovic and Juan Cuadrado remain sidelined due to injuries.

Meanwhile, the Red Bulls suffered a heartbreaking defeat to LASK over the weekend. Considering Inter’s formidable home record at the “Meazza,” a victory for the home team seems likely.

Unfortunately, Fernando, Koita, Omoregie, and Wallner are all sidelined with injuries, while Guindo and Okoh are uncertain due to their respective injury concerns.

Team News:

Inter’s upcoming Serie A match against Roma next Sunday might tempt Inzaghi to make changes to his lineup, as he often does. However, the Nerazzurri manager should opt to start Thuram and Martinez as his forward pairing, resisting the temptation to give Alexis Sanchez a starting role alongside the World Cup-winning striker.

Alessandro Bastoni, who was rested in the previous match against Torino, is expected to make a return to the defense, potentially taking the place of Stefan de Vrij in the starting lineup.

Unfortunately, Juan Cuadrado and Marko Arnautovic are unavailable due to muscle injuries and won’t be back until November.

Salzburg faces several injury concerns heading into Tuesday’s game. Fernando, Sekou Koita, Bryan Okoh, Lukas Wallner, and Justin Omoregie are all expected to be absent. Additionally, Mads Bidstrup, who is dealing with an illness, and Kamil Piatkowski, nursing a calf injury, are doubtful and not likely to participate at San Siro.

Roko Simic, who scored a penalty and assisted in Oscar Gloukh’s goal during the 2-0 victory against Benfica, will play a crucial role for injury-plagued Salzburg as they aim to secure a positive result on matchday three.
