Champions League live: Inter vs. Sheriff

by | Oct 19, 2021 18:46

Inter bring in Arturo Vidal and Denzel Dumfries with Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko, as they seek their first Champions League win against the immensely surprising giant-killers Sheriff Tiraspol.

It kicks off at San Siro at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

You can follow all the build-up and action as it happens from this game and Porto-Milan on the LIVEBLOG.

The Nerazzurri suffered a late defeat to Real Madrid and held Shakhtar Donetsk 0-0 in Ukraine, but are yet to score in this season’s Champions League.

Incredibly, Moldovan club Sheriff in their first ever participation in the tournament are top of Group D with a 100 per cent record, having beaten Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 and won 2-1 away to Real Madrid.

Simone Inzaghi’s men are also fresh from their first Serie A defeat of the season, 3-1 at Lazio, and make changes from the Stadio Olimpico.

Lautaro Martinez returns after international duty to partner Dzeko, but Federico Dimarco steps in for Alessandro Bastoni, Dumfries is preferred to Matteo Darmian and Arturo Vidal comes in for injured Hakan Calhanoglu.

Sheriff started the same XI in their first two Champions League games, but are forced into changes.

Goalkeeper Giorgos Athanasiadis has to pull out, while striker Jasurbek Yakhsiboev makes way for Bruno Souza.

Alexander Belousov is still unavailable in midfield.

    Does that mean we are playing 4 at the back?

    Both Milan sides are an embarrassment to Italy. Inter of course are massive failures, who can’t even get out of easy groups.

    Allright young Chuck, it’s past bedtime.
    Did not get to see the Milan game, but Porto are more than a decent side so no embarrassment there.
    Inter should’ve got at least a couple of goals more but then again Sheriff were a tad unlucky on a couple of counters too: fair result and a good performance yet again by the nerazurri. Some people just need to watch games instead of trolling around based on bs.
