Ranocchia: 'Stjarnan-Inter battle'

Inter captain Andrea Ranocchia expects “a real battle” with Stjarnan in the Europa League tomorrow.

The first leg of the play-off is in Iceland on Wednesday at 22.00 UK time (21.00 GMT).

“It’ll be the game of a lifetime for Stjarnan and obviously it is also fundamental for us to progress,” the centre-back said in a Press conference.

“It’s going to be a real battle tomorrow.”

Ranocchia was also asked about his chances of getting back into the Italy squad under new Coach Antonio Conte, who had already wanted him at Juventus.

“The Nazionale is a consequence of what I do with Inter. I want to and have to do well at Inter.”
