Inter to rest Lukaku against Sassuolo?

Sky Sport Italia reports Romelu Lukaku could be rested when Inter play Sassuolo in Serie A on Saturday.

As Juventus have revealed Cristiano Ronaldo will not play against Benevento, the broadcaster reveals Inter could rest the Belgian centre-forward against the Neroverdi.

The Belgium international returned from an injury that kept him out of the matches against Parma and Real Madrid ahead of the international break.

To avoid overloading the former Manchester United forward, Alexis Sanchez could get the go ahead against Sassuolo this weekend.

Sky writes he will be paired with Lautaro Martinez in the starting line-up, as coach Antonio Conte has one eye on the important match against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League.

The report claims Matteo Darmian and Ivan Perisic could replace Achraf Hakimi and Ashley Young out wide, but Stefano Sensi doesn’t seem ready to return from the first minute in the middle.

Marcelo Brozovic fights to return in time after having tested negative for coronavirus this week, but Nicolò Barella, Arturo Vidal and Roberto Gagliardini are still expected to start.

Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni seem set to continue at the back.
