Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini is set to pair Colombia internationals Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel up front for the Serie A match against Inter tomorrow evening.

La Dea visit the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza looking for a first away win over Inter since March 2014 as they attempt to maintain their Champions League qualification ambitions.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, Gasperini will go for an attacking line-up that sees Zapata and Muriel lead the line whilst Matteo Pessina supports them from an advanced midfield role.

Elsewhere, Marco Sportiello is expected to fight off competition from Pierluigi Gollini to retain his position in goal, whilst midfield trio Josip Ilicic, Ruslan Malinovskyi and Aleksei Miranchuk will be amongst the substitutes.

Gasperini will opt for a three-man defence of Rafael Toloi, Cristian Romero and Berat Djimsiti, whilst Joakim Maehle and Robin Gosens will operate as wing-backs.

The central midfield berths will be filled by Marten De Roon and Remo Freuler, behind the trio of Pessina, Zapata and Muriel.
