Antonio Conte is not planning any surprises for his starting XI when Inter take on Juventus on Sunday, according to a report in Italy today.
Conte made eight changes for Wednesday’s Coppa Italia tie away to Fiorentina in a bid to keep his big players fresh ahead of this weekend’s Derby d’Italia at San Siro.
Corriere dello Sport expect Conte to return to his standard starting XI against the Bianconeri with the likes of Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni, Achraf Hakimi, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic and Romelu Lukaku all returning.
Danilo D’Ambrosio is the only player unavailable for Inter with Matteo Darmian having overcome injury, tests ruling out injury for Stefano Sensi and Matias Vecino and Andrea Pinamonti both having got over their respective injuries.
Inter head into the match against Andrea Pirlo’s side with a four-point advantage in the Serie A standings, albeit Juventus have a game in hand.
Probable Inter starting line-up (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal, Young; Lukaku, Lautaro.
