Stramaccioni planning youthful Inter Milan line-up for Euro tie

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni will field a youthful line-up for their Europa League dead rubber against Rubin Kazan.

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni will field a youthful line-up for their Europa League dead rubber against Rubin Kazan.

With qualification to the knock-out stages already secured and problems with injuries, the Beneamata may have an unfamiliar look about them tomorrow night.

“This match against Rubin is an important moment for our youth academy, where I come from myself, because it's an opportunity to see if some of these youngsters might be ready if they're called upon,” Stramaccioni said.

“Although we don't have all the big names here with us, I'm sure that the youngsters and the others who play tomorrow will do well.

“We've got 10 lads here under the age of 21, some of them will definitely play.

“If in the early stage of the Europa League we made changes through choice, now we're doing it out of necessity.”
