Inter will potentially be glad of this fixture as they look to build on the win over Sassuolo last week which could be the kick starter for their Serie A campaign.
Salernitana are no pushovers, but facing the Granata at home when you’re trying to build a run of domestic form is not the worst situation to be in for Simone Inzaghi and his players.
Salernitana sit in 11th and do look like a better team than last season, whilst Inter will be looking to cut the gap to the teams in the top six as they are at risk of being cut adrift.
Inter v Salernitana: Predicted line-ups
Yet another injury setback for Romelu Lukaku means that this game could come too soon for him to make his return. It had been earmarked as his match but he cannot shake off the thigh injury.
Marcelo Brozovic will still be out injured too and they must hope that in the run-up to this match, no issues crop up from the Barcelona game.
Ivan Radovanovic is suspended for Salernitana and Giulio Maggiore has got a thigh injury that is keeping him out.
Inter predicted XI v Salernitana (3-5-2): Onana; Skriniar, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dimarco, Calhanoglu, Asllani, Barella, Dumfries; Lautaro, Dzeko.
Salernitana predicted XI v Inter (3-5-2): Sepe; Pirola, Daniliuc, Gyomber; Mazzocchi, Vilhena, Capezzi, Coulibaly, Candreva; Piatek, Bonazzoli.
