THE TEAM NEWS

INTERNAZIONALE

  • Internazionale produced a very good performance against Barcelona on matchday two but a late Luis Suarez goal cost them a point.
  • The strike pairing of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez will lead the line and hope to take their impressive league form into Europe.
  • Sensi is a major doubt for this game after he was forced to sit out his side's clash at the weekend with Sassuolo with a thigh injury

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar; Candreva, Brozovic, Vecino, Barella, Asamoah; Lukaku, Martinez

Unavailable: Sanchez (Injured), D'Ambrosio (Injured), Sensi (Injured)

Doubtful:

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund avoided the potential banana skin on their trip to Slavia Praha as they claimed a solid win on matchday 2.
  • Dortmund could be set to make some changes to their line-up here as head coach Lucien Favre attempts to keep his players fresh.
  • Jadon Sancho will hope for an immediate return to the side after he was dropped at the weekend though that is far from guaranteed

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burki; Akanji, Hummels, Weigl, Schulz; Witsel, Delaney; Hazard, Reus, Hakimi; Brandt

Unavailable: Reus (Illness), Schmelzer (Injured), Paco Alcacer (Injured)

Doubtful: Burki (Injured), Gotze (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Internazionale have drawn their last three Champions League matches and a fourth could be on the cards as they host Borussia Dortmund. They will have to keep things tight at the back if they are to be successful and will be confident of keeping Dortmund at bay in a low-scoring contest.
