Inter travel to face Genoa in Serie A as they look to rediscover their form in their bid to retain the Scudetto.

From a position of strength before the new year, the Nerazzurri have relinquished top spot after a run of just two wins from their last six league games.

Last weekend's 2-0 home defeat to Sassuolo marked a particular low point in 2022 for Simone Inzaghi's men and they will be keen to respond against a Genoa side currently languishing in the relegation zone.

Here's how Inter could line up.


Inter predicted lineup vs Genoa - Serie A

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Samir Handanovic (GK) - His errors are beginning to cost Inter dearly this season.

Milan Skriniar (CB) - Comfortable operating anywhere along the backline and rarely looks overwhelmed.

Stefan de Vrij (CB) - Reads the game exceptionally well, although he can often suffer in physical battles.

Federico Dimarco (CB) - Likely to fill in again for the injured Alessandro Bastoni.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Denzel Dumfries (RWB) - Deployed so aggressive on the right-hand side that he is often holding hands with the strikers.

Nicolo Barella (CM) - The former Cagliari midfielder stands alone among Inter players in chances created this term.

Marcelo Brozovic (CM) - They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, as Inter discovered in last weekend's defeat.

Arturo Vidal (CM) - Never stops running in midfield and is always looking to break forward beyond the forward line.

Ivan Perisic (LWB) - There remains doubts over the Croatian's future at Inter after the arrival of Robin Gosens.

3. Forwards

Edin Dzeko (ST) - Often used as a target man, but his penalty box instincts are unrivalled in Serie A.
