Sky - Nainggolan still bothered by injury, in doubt against Atalanta. Chance for Gagliardini and Joao Mario
Nainggolan is a warrior and so it was not a surprise that he wanted (and did) to play against Barcelona. However, due to his physical condition not at its very best, the Belgian was practically ineffective for the entire game.
According to Sky, the sprained ankle still bothers the Inter number 14 and as a result, Nainggolan is in doubt for the game against Atalanta on Sunday (noon kick-off). Sky reporter Andrea Paventi believes that the Belgian could have some minutes later on in the game but at least from the beginning, Spalletti could rely on healthier options such as Gagliardini and Joao Mario to battle Gasperini’s Atalanta.
