Inter go to back-three for Spurs

Inter are expected to switch to a back-three for tomorrow evening’s Champions League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

The Nerazzurri deployed a 3-4-3 shape for Week 2 of the season, but following the 2-2 draw with Torino Coach Luciano Spalletti quickly went back to a four.

However, today’s Gazzetta dello Sport expects that they’ll play a back-three against Spurs, with Miranda returning to play alongside Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij.

WC Player Profile: Joao Miranda

Wearing the captain’s armband against Serbia, Inter man Joao Miranda is a rock in Brazil’s defence, writes Daryl Hammond.

The centre-back had previous failed attempts at European club football when young, but found his confidence at Atletico Madrid and went from strength to strength at Inter.

Brazil have always struggled at the back and the 7-1 World Cup defeat on home soil hammered home the need to change that.

Miranda went from stand-by player to key figure in Tite's back line.

Roma goalkeeper Alisson, Inter centre-back and Juventus winger Douglas Costa have all been included in Tite’s squad.

However, Douglas Costa’s Bianconeri teammate Alex Sandro won’t be travelling to Russia, unless he’s called-up to replace an injured player before the tournament starts.

Skriniar has been linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs after impressing in his first season with Inter, while Miranda made the bold claim on Wednesday.

“I expect an angry and ruthless Bianconeri, but it applies to us too: the stadium will give us a hand to win,” the former Sampdoria stopper told La Repubblica.
