No wonder everybody is talking about the game in other threads and not here. There was no thread.

They don't have Biraghi, Kouame, Castrovilli and Dodo, we won't have Calhanoglu, Cuadrado, Barella and possibly Dumfries.

We play to win so we can catch up to Juventus. While Fiorentina will play to win because they know we don't have Calhanoglu and Barella. They need to preserve their spot in the top 4.

I kinda ok not seeing Dumfries anymore. For me, Bisseck is the guy on the right, till we get someone on the transfer window.

It's gonna be difficult but we can do this. Viola is known to be a naive team, especially in recent seasons, but us having a couple of key absences is making us look kind of vulnerable, so my biggest concern is whether our bench players will step up and take responsibility in such a match.

Not getting a win here would complicate our season a lot, so hopefully we get the job done.

Glad we'll have Bastoni back. Midfield is concerning, but personally I wouldn't make risk even higher by playing both Asllani and Frattesi from start.

And I’m confident that Asllani will do a good job and Frattesi proves that he deserves to start 50 percent of the games.

We did get someone in the transfer window - Buchanan. Also Inzaghi does not see Bisseck as an RWB. So if no Dumfries, it means Darmian every game.

What's the solution though, if we don't play both Frattesi/Asllani? We all know Inzaghi is not going to change formation.

The only solution is to play Miki deep and Frattesi and Sanchez in the middle. But I like to see Asllani to start. We need too start playing our young guys if needed. Fiorentina is not Real Madrid or Bayern. He can handle it.

Why is not ok to see Dumfries anymore, you want Darmian there? We aint winning shit with Darmian playing rwb whole season. We need Dumfries in starting eleven. What is happening with him?

I think he is not happy with the money and he is not focused. I could be wrong, but that is the impression I get.

I would start Mhiki, Sensi and Fratessi against Fiore. I know its almost impossible scenario but fuck it. Sensi has a big experience playing in Seria A and he is not injured.

What makes you think that, given that Dumfries hasn't even been playing? I'd understand if he was playing and didn't seem focused but how can you tell if a player is not focused if they're not on the pitch?

He started the Verona match in January, and needed medical attention after 20 minutes (his first start since injury). It seems to me he's still suffering with injury. We even kept playing Skriniar after news came out he would join PSG (Empoli fiasco). He started the very next game in the Milan derby, just lost the captaincy.

We really need Dumfries for rest of the season. Inzaghi is very slow in integrating Buchanan and Darmian already looks burnt out and it's only January.

I just have a feeling that he is not happy with current contract situation. Anyways, I did not say bad anything about him, did I?

So, Sensi is better than Asllani?:)

Don't have one.
Wouldn't mind a draw here, with an obligatory win against juve. That way we still stay in command.

I don't know if we can win it with some of these guys starting from the first minute after many weeks and overall tiredness after playing supercoppa games.

But he may leave if somebody offers more money. Anyways, Let's see it.

Well, a test for the bench it seems. Frattesi should be ok, will miss the occasional brilliance of Barella's passing but he does offer some speed. Asllani good test for him against a decent opponent. Bastoni back is useful especially on the attack since Inter will probably try to exploit that side most often. Can see an Arnautovic and Thuram to start upfront, since Lautaro played the entire match. Darmian again, since Dumfries is either injured or in some deep funk.
It's away, after a emotional win, while Fiorentina needs a return to some kinda form. Smells like draw, but if you want to be Champions, dig deep and win. Forza Inter.
