Coppa Italia round of 16: Inter vs. Pordenone - Our cup run begins here
I have pretty much been looking forward to this game the moment our game with Juventus ended. For one thing, this is an opportunity for those players who have not been featured regularly to show their quality. Second, Pordenone is just a great story all round. Plus, their president's family is all Interisti so you cannot go wrong.
"Pordenone represent a real danger. They are a solid club and their coach Colucci has worked as assistant manager for Giampaolo. His side played entertaining football – we saw it in their game against Cagliari and we all know how good a side Cagliari are, how difficult it was for us against them," said coach Spalletti, underlying that Pordenone, despite their status as a Serie C club, represent a real challenge for the team. If Inter are not up to it, anything can happen on a football field. This is why we play the game, actual 90 minutes to determine winners and losers.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, there will be numerous changes starting with Padelli in goal. Nagatomo returns to the lineup on the right side with Dalbert on the left. The untouchable Skriniar will team up with Ranocchia in the central defense. Vecino and Gagliardini will play in front of the defense with Cancelo, Brozovic and Karamoh supporting Eder up front.
