Nicolo Barella remained on the bench last night not due to injury but due to Inter having a fear he could pick up one according to a report from Italian news outlet FCInter1908.it.
The Italian national team midfielder has been pivotal for Inter this term but was given a rare opportunity to rest for last night’s match against Sassuolo as he started on the bench.
He was widely expected to be among the players Antonio Conte would bring on at some stage in the game but he never came on and FCInter1908.it claim that Inter did not want to run the risk of him getting injured given the number of injuries in the midfield already.
Stefano Sensi, Matias Vecino and Marcelo Brozovic are all currently sidelined with injury issues and had Barella picked up an injury, Inter’s midfield options would be reduced to the bare minimum, which would be far from ideal given the amount of games Inter are to face in quick succession.
