When you play a game every 2-3 days, having a deep team and the willingness to rotate are important. The next game for Inter is this Thursday against FC Vaslui at the San Siro and according to Sky, the intention of Stramaccioni is to rest some of his key players in particularly Antonio Cassano and Wesley Sneijder. The reason? There are two: first is a nice 2-0 lead in the first leg and the second is that Inter will have to play its first big game of the season just three days later against Roma.
With the probable absences of Cassano and Sneijder, there should be space for Coutinho and Palacio in the starting lineups.
