Antonio Conte will make six changes to Inter’s starting XI for tomorrow’s Serie A match at home to Benevento, according to a leading Italian broadcaster this evening.

As per Sky Sport Italia, Christian Eriksen has earned himself a chance in the line-up after his last-minute Milan derby goal in mid-week and will replace Marcelo Brozovic in central midfield.

The Danish international will play alongside Roberto Gagliardini, the latter of whom is favoured to start over Arturo Vidal, while Lautaro Martinez is due to step in for Alexis Sanchez up front.

Achraf Hakimi will return to the side at right wing-back after Matteo Darmian started against AC Milan, while Ivan Perisic will retain his place on the opposite flank with Ashley Young staying on the bench.

In defence, Andrea Ranocchia will come in for a rare appearance in place of Stefan de Vrij, who will get a chance to rest ahead of Tuesday’s Coppa Italia semi-final first leg at home to Juventus.

Alessandro Bastoni will also be back in the XI, having been replaced by Aleksandar Kolarov against the Rossoneri.

Inter’s probable starting XI vs Benevento (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, Ranocchia, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Perisic; Lukaku, Lautaro.
