November 3, 2021. Tiraspol. Big Sports Arena Champions League, 4th round. Full statistics and odds for the match can be found at 1xbet review.
This week will be Inter’s most important week in the first part of the 2021/22 season. On it, the Nerazzurri can take a big step towards the Champions League playoffs and signal Napoli and Milan that they are still in the race for the Scudetto. Gazzetta dello Sport writes with confidence that if in the matches with “Empoli” and “Udinese” the head coach of “Inter” Simone Inzaghi used rotation, then in the next two matches – with “Sheriff” and “Milan” he will play strictly the basis. Changes in the line-up for these games will be minimal: in Tiraspol, the Nerazzurri coach will play with Dimarco and Vidal, in the derby with Milan – with Bastogne and Chalhanoglu. In both cases, from the first minutes, Inter will have to show up Handanovic, Shkrinjar, De Vrey, Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Perisic, Lautaro Martinez and Dzeko.
After the victory over “Petrocub” in the championship of Moldova, “Sheriff” mentor Yuri Vernidub noted that there are enough players in the team’s infirmary: “There are Yansane, there is Musa. Nikolov also has problems. this situation. Will Nikolov be able to recover by Wednesday? I think not. But let’s see, there is still time. ” On the other hand, the recovered goalkeeper Anastasiadis and forward Yakhshiboev will play against Inter: the Greek played a full match with Petrokub, the Uzbek came on as a substitute in the 58th minute. Both missed the match at “Giuseppe Meazza” due to injuries, and now get a chance to meet with the eminent Italian opponent in their field.
“Sheriff” – “Inter”: the forecast
It is very difficult to predict the results of matches with the participation of “Sheriff”. We all understand that the class of this team is not comparable to most rivals in the Champions League, but Vernidub’s team has learned to play great in character. On the other hand, “Inter” and “Real” will no longer have a feeling of underestimation in relation to their opponents after the victories of “Sheriff” over “Shakhtar” and “Real” itself. In Tiraspol, the hosts will play number two, on counterattacks, while Inter will try to get at least a minimal victory. And I expect the Italians ‘defense to take seriously the hosts’ counter-attacks. In the three previous matches, “Sheriff” managed to hit the opponents’ goal, but it was time to play a clean sheet. I repeat, no underestimation of the opponent this time from the side of the grand and the favorite will happen.
