He’s yet to keep a cleansheet in the tournament but Samir Handanovic did manage to save face with some late saves the last time around to protect his side’s sticks and keep them involved in the game till the final rites.
For some unfathomable reason, the guile and tenacity Inter Milan has shown defensively in the Serie A hasn’t been carried forward into the Champions League. Despite that, we’ll be opting for a set of picks from the club with the side ingrained with Conte’s worldclass defensive gameplan.
