The Nerazzurri come into this one off the back of a very impressive 1-0 victory over league leaders Napoli, a game that was viewed as a must-win for Inter’s slim title aspirations. Simone Inzaghi will back his side to get a result away at Monza.
The Brianzoli managed to get a point from their first game of 2023 as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with Fiorentina.
Monza v Inter: Predicted line-ups
Inter will be thrilled that, whilst he didn’t find the back of the net, Romelu Lukaku managed to play 64 minutes of the game and looked dangerous. Inzaghi has his four forwards available at once for the first time this season. He will be without Marcelo Brozovic though who has got another injury.
The only major absentee for Monza is young midfielder Nicolo Rovella, who is not expected back until the latter stage of the season.
Monza predicted XI vs Inter (3-4-2-1): Di Gregorio; Marlon, Mari, Caldirola; Vignato, Ranocchia, Pessina, Augusto; Caprari, Birindelli; Petagna.
Inter predicted XI vs Monza (3-5-2): Onana; Bastoni, De Vrij, Skriniar; Gosens, Calhanoglu, Asllani, Barella, Dumfries; Lautaro, Lukaku.
