Serie A matchday 18: Sassuolo vs. Inter - Pick yourselves up and fight!
Good teams don’t fold. They don’t let a couple of missteps ruin their entire season. They use those obstacles to learn how to not repeat those mistakes and do better the next time. Good teams don’t sit there and feel sorry for themselves because they just lost a match. Football is a wonderful sport. No matter how badly a team did last week, the same team will have another chance to redeem themselves days later. After two missteps against Pordenone and Udinese, Spalletti and the boys have another chance tomorrow to watch all the bitter taste off and start a new positive streak.
“It is vital for us to pick ourselves up after the defeat versus Udinese. We do not need to have any back-up plan after the loss last Saturday, we just need to keep doing the things that we have done so far with the same conviction - said Spalletti in the pre-match press conference. The very best teams can stumble into defeat and they always respond well in training. The desire and quality are not lacking among my players and this is why I have total faith and I can trust them all because they work in correct manners.”
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, despite struggling in previous two matches, Brozovic is set to start once again in the trequartista position supporting Icardi together with Perisic and Candreva. Without Vecino due to a suspension, Spalletti will bring back Gagliardini and pair him up with Borja Valero in front of the defense. The left back position goes to Nagatomo despite the strong push from Dalbert in training. Miranda-Skriniar is your duo in the central defense and D’Ambrosio fills out the last spot.
