Ahead of this weekend’s Derby D’Italia between Juventus and Inter, Sky Sport have made a prediction with regard to Luciano Spalletti’s possible team selection for Saturday’s game.

Davide Santon is set for his fourth straight start at left back and is clearly favoured over Yuto Nagatomo currently by Spalletti. The 26-year-old Italian has largely impressed since being given the chance by Spalletti who appears to have

Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic is the only one of the irregular starters in with a shout of getting a start at the Allianz Stadium. Despite this, Sky still believe that Borja Valero remains the favourite to be deployed behind star man Mauro Icardi in the role of a trequartista. Both Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino will return to action after missing out last week’s 5-0 rout of Chievo also. The duo will make up the midfield two in Spalletti’s trusted 4-2-3-1.

    To me Borja and Epic are both guaranteed starters , then the remaining spot is between Vecino and Gaglia, depending on current form , I don’t care which one .
    But those 2 should start for sure.
    That’s where it should all begin.

    Vecino (or Gaglia ), Valero.

    Let’s play Borja Valero & Vecino as defensive midfielders and push Brozovic up as trequartista. Joao Mario can come in 2nd half. I believe Santon can block Cuadrado or Doughlas Costa since He silenced Ronaldo 8 years ago :)).
