Inter acquired three important points against Torino, but they will be a weaker midfield group as they head into Champions League play. Nicolò Barella suffered an injury and will be unavailable for Conte's squad.
The former Cagliari man was substituted in the first half due to an injury to his right knee. According to what was leaked by De Vrij at halftime, Barella's injury did not seem minor. Conte spoke further on the injury to DAZN.
Barella underwent tests at the Istituto Humanitas di Rozzano and the club released the following statement:
"The results revealed damage to a fragment of cartilage in his kneecap. Barella will undergo arthroscopic surgery to remove the fragment." The player is expected to be available to return in early 2020.
