Inter Coach Mulling Benching Linchpins in Bayern Munich

Inter had a poor start defensively, and Samir Handanovic’s performances contributed to that. Although he didn’t make blunders, he didn’t perform at the same level as the best goalkeepers in Serie A, and the contrast with Mike Minnan, who saved the situation for Milan late in Saturday’s derby, was stark.

according to Corriere della SeraSimone Inzaghi is considering giving Andre Onana a nod in tonight’s game against Bayern Munich. The previous Ajax stopper was brought in to be a start at the end. However, at some point during the last season, it was Nerazzurri I decided to keep the veteran, too.

Inter and Handanovic have conceded 8 goals in just 19 shots so far. They were beaten 32 times in Serie A in the entire 2021/2022 season. The average increased from 0.84 to 1.6. They only scored one clean sheet, against Spezia. The captain clearly lacks a blast.

It wasn’t the only problem, the midfield won only 37 percent of tackles, and the defense left a lot to be desired as well. As Inzaghi pointed out after the recent loss, The beloved give up easily. The player also did not like some situations on the field. At the head of the goalkeeper, Nicolo Parilla and Stefan de Vrij could start on the bench against Bayern as well, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Danilo D’Ambrosio taking their positions in the squad.

Our position on Inter is likely to be Handanovic’s bench

It’s going to happen sometime this season, but if it happens in a high-profile match like this, it’s basically an official change of goalkeeper. The manager should make sure that Onana is fully prepared for this before making the call.
