Icardi was initially deprived of the captain’s armband, and later refused to participate in training. This week he apologized to his teammates for his behavior and is again considered a “full team member” according to the Italian media. His return is of great importance for head coach Luciano Spalletti, as his substitute, compatriot Lautaro Martinez, will not be fit due to a thigh blow. Icardi will therefore most likely return to the original formation immediately. With nine goals in 20 games, he is still the top scorer in the table third. His goals would be of great importance to fix the premier class as well. In addition to the mentioned Martinez also right-back Sime Vrsaljko will be missing.
