The long-awaited match-up with Juventus is approaching and Luciano Spalletti is grappling with the last doubts of the starting formation for Saturday night.
The derby match could give even more confidence to Inter, who have been the protagonists of a surprisingly strong start to the season absolutely beyond any predictions. The most likely formation sees Miranda returning to the middle of the defense after his one match ban that kept him in the sidelines against Chievo. Roberto Gagliardini was also disqualified last Sunday but now is predicted to re-claim his spot in central midfield in favour of Marcelo Brozovic. The choice between Gagliardini and Brozovic is Spalletti’s biggest headache, as the inclusion of the Croatian midfielder means moving Borja Valero into a deeper position. The former Atalanta midfielder is favourite to start alongside Vecino in the typical 4-2-3-1 formation. On the left wing Santon is likely to retain his spot once again. The rest of the team will remain unchanged as it has throughout the season.
