Inter Milan defender Benjamin Pavard will reportedly maintain his starting berth in the line-up against Atalanta.
The Nerazzurri travel to Bergamo this weekend for an exciting Serie A clash against Atalanta.
Simone Inzaghi’s men will be looking to solidify their lead with a win over La Dea on Saturday while hoping that Juventus and the rest of the chasing packing drop points this weekend.
So which players will feature in Inter’s starting formation?
According to Sky Sport via FcInter1908, Pavard’s position remains intact.
The Frenchman joined the club in a relatively late stage of the summer transfer market.
Nevertheless, he has now cemented his place in Inzaghi’s starting line-up at Matteo Darmian’s expense.
The source also expects Francesco Acerbi and Alessandro Bastoni to join Pavard in the back three.
In the middle of the park, the report believes Davide Frattesi is set for another bench role. This suggests that Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu and Henrikh Mkhitaryan will once again be the starting trio.
On the flanks, Denzel Dumfries and Federico Dimarco will also maintain their starting spots, reckons the source.

Finally, Inzaghi will once again rely on the striking partnership of Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram.
The Argentine remains the leader of the Serie A scoring charts with 11 strikes to his name. On the other hand, the French international scored the winner against AS Roma last weekend.
So based on the report, Inzaghi will maintain the same starting line-up that beat the Giallorossi 1-0 last Sunday.
Inter Probable XI (3-5-2): Sommer; Pavard, Acerbi, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Thuram
