I don't think I'll have the time to watch the game. Really need the team to win this one.

I predict we start with

Sommer
Darmian-Acerbi-Bastoni
Dumfries-Barella-Hakan-Mkhitaryan-Dimarco
Thuram-Lautaro

Pavard should not be dropped. He's not a bench player. Inzaghi needs to realize that ASAP. Darmian did a good job as RCB but Pavard is the man for the role. Darmian can take his place here and there, but Pavard needs to be treated as the 1st option.

This will happen only if Darmian starts rapidly to decline. He is Italian boy and our coach is Italian. In his heart Darmian will always be his first choice.

Benfica will be pumped as hell for this one. They've defeated Porto in their domestic league derby, so their morale has gotten a huge boost ahead of this clash. So it's gonna be a hell of a task for both teams since we can't afford to lose points meanwhile Benfica already lost at home in the first match.

Regardless of circumstances, we must win this. No excuses.

If we don’t win this it can get very tricky.

Socidad since our game won all their games, getafe and Bilbao at home and Valencia away.

Benefica have won 6 out of 7 league games, exactly like us (except they're second on the table). Not sure who they have to watch, but Angel Di Maria is always going to be dangerous. That said, we need to win this type of game at home.

I'm not a positive for this one, but let's hope that we'll win.

Since the derby, it's been an underwhelming run, albeit heavy and questionable replacements in part, but still worrisome. It's typical Inter though, never clear skies ahead rather always a series dark clouds of doom on the horizon. This group was never going to be a stroll in park. Inter needs to knuckle down and win this. Yes, Pavard should start.

This. Time to make Pavard the man at the back. Darmian can be Dumfries' sub since Cuadrado is apparently dead.

if we play dumfries as rwb, we need pavard as rcb.

dumfries, barella, darmian combo does not work well especially against fast wingers
