Inter preparing to play this coming weekend’s Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan despite them having six players who have tested positive for COVID-19 according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera.

Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan, Roberto Gagliardini, Ionut Andrei Radu and Ashley Young are all currently positive for COVID-19.

The Inter players currently at the club training ground and not on international duty will be subjected to a fifth COVID-19 test in the last six days today and when the 16 players away on international duty all return, all players will take yet another test.

Although there are six positive players, Inter have every intention of fulfilling this coming Saturday’s first Milan derby of the season, even if the current situation does worry the club.

Saturday’s match at San Siro, which Inter the designated hosts for, is scheduled to kick off at 18:00 local time.
