Against Genoa could be opportunity for Rafinha to start given the difficult moment Brozovic is in

The time is now for Rafinha. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, considering the negative moment that Brozovic is going through, it is not impossible to think that the Croatian will be excluded from the starting lineup against Genoa this Saturday.

“Assuming that it will be so, Rafinha should play as trequartista behind Icardi, if the Argentinian recovers on time, re-enacting the last time this duo was together at Barcelona B. The use of Rafinha in the starting lineup will surely be in the thought of Luciano Spalletti: is it better to take advantage of his abilities from the start or put in him the game in the second half when the intensity of Genoa is expected to drop? Certainly, Luciano Spalletti will have a lot to think about given the unknown physical condition of Icardi and Perisic.”
