Adrien Rabiot and Danilo will be back in the Juventus starting eleven for Sunday’s Serie A match against Inter Milan.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who also report that Weston McKennie and Federico Chiesa could also start.
Both Inter coach Simone Inzaghi and his Juventus counterpart Max Allegri want their strongest teams on Sunday.
The Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri are playing what could be a title-decider in Serie A.
Just one point currently separates the two teams at the top of the table. Albeit with Inter having a game in hand.
And according to the Corriere, Allegri will make changes compared to team that drew Empoli in the Serie A.
Rabiot & Danilo To Start For Juventus In Serie A Clash Vs Inter
One player who was not able to start for the Bianconeri against Empoli was Rabiot.
The French international, who started in the World Cup final against Argentina in Qatar last year, was not available last weekend.
Rabiot missed the Empoli clash due to an accumulation of yellow cards.
Therefore, Fabio Miretti started in midfield alongside Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie.
However, Rabiot will be available next Sunday.
Therefore, there is no doubt that, as with Inter duo Hakan Calhanoglu or Nicolo Barella who were both suspended against Fiorentina, the 28-year-old will slot back in at the San Siro.
Meanwhile, defender Danilo did not play in Juventus’s draw against Empoli.
The Brazilian former Manchester City defender, who is Juventus’s club captain, is one booking away from suspension.
Therefore, Allegri did not risk having him pick up a booking. But Danilo will be back in the team against Inter.
Meanwhile, the Corriere anticipate that both US international McKennie and Italy international Chiesa could also start despite some relatively minor fitness concerns.
