Conte could rest Lautaro, who still has one more game to play with Argentina, and start Sanchez against Udinese

The Gazztta dello Sport, in today’s edition, looks forward to Inter-Udinese on Saturday, particularly on the question of who will be playing next to Romelu Lukaku.

Antonio Conte imagined an Inter with two physical strikers up front that’s why Inter went after Edin Dzeko to play alongside the Belgian striker. But things didn’t go as planned and so it will be a second striker with smaller stature to support the giant.

The options are Lautaro Martinez, Alexis Sanchez and even Matteo Politano. Against Lecce and Cagliari, Lukaku and Lautaro produced three goals and showed unexpected early understanding. However, this Saturday against Udinese, Il Toro is not the favorite to start because he will only return to Italy on either Wednesday or Thursday, after Argentina-Mexico tomorrow. 

And so it is not excluded that he could rest in view of  Champions League debut against Slavia Prague to give space to Alexis Sanchez who, compared to the Argentinian, will have a lot more time this week to train with the team.
