Inter host a stabilizing Venezia side on Saturday After playing 120 minutes in a cup tie that looked more straightforward than it panned out to be, Inter will host Venezia in a match that is still slated to go on at this point despite a COVID outbreak in the Venezia organization. It is still unclear whether the match will be played or not, but given the way Serie A has treated the situation, the show will try to go on.

Inter?s B team saw Empoli bring the match to them on Wednesday in the Coppa Italia, where it took the inclusion of a number of usual starters to help put away Serie A?s surprise package this season. Nonetheless, some key pieces still got a full rest or did not register substantial minutes. This should mean that Inter come into this match with a fresher team than the one they fielded last weekend against Atalanta after Simone Inzaghi fielded his first team in the Supercoppa Italiana midweek last week. The only big miss will be Joaquin Correa, who pulled up with a hamstring injury just minutes into the match against Empoli. Inter fielded a rotated team against Venezia in Venice back in November and managed to get the win, but the Serie B promotion winners have since strengthened with a few January signings including veteran Portuguese winger Nani.
