Darmian Favourite Over Perisic & Young To Start For Inter Against Juventus, Italian Media Confirm

Antonio Conte has two selection dilemmas ahead of Inter’s Coppa Italia semi-final second leg at Juventus tonight, according to an Italian newspaper report.

As per Tuttosport, Conte is tempted to start Christian Eriksen in midfield in place of the suspended Arturo Vidal rather than Roberto Gagliardini, due to Eriksen’s ability to shoot from distance and deliver dangerous set pieces for the likes of Stefan De Vri, Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni and Romelu Lukaku.

The other selection doubt concerns who will start at left wing-back in his 3-5-2 system between the defensive Ashley Young, the attacking Ivan Perisic and the more balanced Matteo Darmian.

The Turin-based publication said Darmian could be the one given the nod to start at the Allianz Stadium, due to the fact that Conte will deploy Achraf Hakimi, a more attacking option, at right wing-back.

Juventus-Inter is scheduled to kick-off at 20:45 local time and Inter must score at least twice to have any chance of progression.
