Teenage forward Kenan Yildiz is the favourite to start in attack for Juventus in tomorrow’s Serie A clash with Inter Milan.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper also report that Adrien Rabiot will be back in the Bianconeri starting eleven.
In just over 24 hours, Inter and Juventus will take each other on in Serie A.
This edition of the Derby d’Italia should have even more of a fever pitch than usual. There is a sense that this could be a title-decider considering the table.
Inter are currently just one point ahead of Juventus in the table. Albeit with the Nerazzurri having a game in hand.
Inter coach Simone Inzaghi and his Juventus counterpart Max Allegri are both firming up their lineup decisions ahead of tomorrow evening’s match.
And according to the Gazzetta, Allegri is leaning in one direction in attack.
Kenan Yildiz Favourite To Start For Juventus In Serie A Clash Vs Inter
There is little doubt that Dusan Vlahovic will start in attack tomorrow.
The former Fiorentina striker has arguably been Juventus’s key man over the past few weeks. He has been on a real run in front of goal after a somewhat underwhelming period.
But the question of who starts alongside Vlahovic has been somewhat open.
One player who certainly not lead the line along with the Serb is Arkadiusz Milik.
The former Napoli man started against Empoli last weekend. However, a red card meant that Milik will be suspended tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Moise Kean remains a Juventus player after his January move to Atletico Madrid fell through.
However, the Italian international is out with an injury.
That leaves two options for Allegri.
One would be Federico Chiesa. The 26-year-old is just coming back from an injury, however.
According to the Gazzetta, therefore, Allegri will put his faith in 18-year-old Turkish international Yildiz to start tomorrow’s match.
