Inter will face an unchanged Empoli side in tomorrow’s Champions League showdown at San Siro.

Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men are not safe from relegation and could need a result to preserve their top-flight status, having hauled themselves out of the bottom three with three straight wins.

The Tuscans are expected to stick with the XI which secured a 4-1 win over Torino last Sunday, with midfielder Rade Krunic their only absentee through injury.

Former Inter defender Matias Silvestre will keep his place in the centre of the back three with Domenico Maietta and Cristian Dell’Orco, who supported the Nerazzurri as a child, either side.

Napoli target Giovanni Di Lorenzo will start on the right-hand side of a midfield five while Francesco Caputo and Diego Farias play up front in a two-man attack.

Inter must win to guarantee a top four finish but will be safe regardless if Milan fail to beat SPAL.

Empoli’s expected starting XI (3-5-2): Dragowski; Maietta, Silvestre, Dell’Orco; Di Lorenzo, Acquah, Bennacer, Traore, Pajac; Caputo, Farias
