Italy’s deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, plays down the racism directed at Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly - “Bonucci got booed by Milan fans, is that racism?”

OFFICIAL: Stadium ban for Inter

Inter have been ordered to play two domestic games behind closed doors for racially abusing Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, who is suspended himself.

The FIGC’s sporting judiciary ruled on Thursday that Inter’s Curva Nord would also be closed for an extra match, on the grounds of ‘offensive chants’ towards Napoli fans, ‘a great majority of which came from that stand’, as well as those of a ‘racist’ nature in Koulibaly’s direction.

Inter believe in bright young hopes

With the likes of Lautaro Martinez and Keita Balde Diao stepping up, Richard Hall felt a new sense of belief among Inter fans at San Siro on Saturday.

Inter’s fans were out in force against Frosinone, 63,645 to be precise, and they were not to be disappointed. The Nerazzurri put the agony of the previous week in Bergamo behind them and proved that they were made of much more sturdy stuff than in previous years. Under Luciano Spalletti, they are maturing into a team that not only has potential but is also starting to entertain. This is what brings the crowds out in Milan: promise and excitement and, what’s more, consistency.

Italy unstoppable at San Siro

Italy are unbeaten at San Siro, but have drawn their last four here, while Milan joins Rome as the most popular Azzurri venue after hosting Portugal tonight.

The Nations League clash kicks off at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza at 19.45 GMT.

It comes a year after the 0-0 draw with Sweden ruled Italy out of the 2018 World Cup, having lost the first leg of the play-off 1-0.

That was their fourth consecutive stalemate at San Siro after friendlies against Germany in both 2013 and 2016, plus a Euro 2014 qualifier with Croatia.
