Inter left-back Kwadwo Asamoah is set to miss the match against Bologna tomorrow, but Stefano Sensi has travelled with the squad.
Corriere dello Sport reports the decision is to preserve Asamoah for the game against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
He has a history of knee problems and missed a large portion of the 2014-15 season when at Juventus due to tearing his ACL.
However, it is assured the Ghanaian missing the match is only a precaution and to let him rest, rather than any fresh injury.
Cristiano Biraghi will replace the 30-year-old at left wingback against Bologna.
However, there is good news for Antonio Conte as Sensi trained on Friday and is fit enough to make the trip to Emilia-Romagna.
The midfielder has been out of action since the 2-1 defeat to Juventus early last month with a muscle tear.
Sensi has scored three goals and provided four assists since signing from Sassuolo over the summer.
