Kenan Yildiz will start for Juventus against Inter Milan this evening, whilst Adrien Rabiot and Danilo will also return to the starting eleven.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews.
This evening, Inter and Juventus face off in Serie A at the San Siro.
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 ready to select their starting elevens for the Serie A showdown.
And according to the Corriere, Allegri has made his decision in attack.
Kenan Yildiz To Start For Juventus Vs Inter – Rabiot & Danilo Also Return
There is little doubt that Dusan Vlahovic will start in attack this evening.
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 for this evening’s match.
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.
Therefore, Allegri will put his trust in young Turkish international Yildiz. Then, Chiesa will be available as a substitute.
Meanwhile, midfielder Rabiot will be back in the Bianconeri starting eleven after missing the last couple matches with an injury.
And Brazilian defender Danilo, Juventus’s captain, will also be back in the team.
Allegri decided not to risk Danilo in the last match against Empoli because the 32-year-old is currently one booking away from suspension. Therefore this evening’s match was always the plan for him.
