Picking the Best Potential Inter Milan Lineup to Face Juventus on Saturday

?League leaders Inter Milan travel to Turin on Saturday night to face Juventus, with a one-point advantage over Napoli after their own defeat to Bianconeri last Friday night.

Inter are the only team to remain unbeaten in Italy after Partenopei lost their record in Naples last time out. 

Mauro Icardi has scored five goals in three coming into this, with winger Ivan Perisic buoyed by his first hat-trick for Nerazurri versus Chievo last Sunday. Inter however, have not won in Turin since 2013.

Here is the best potential lineup that Luciano Spalletti could name to face Juve:   


  • Handanovic


?Samir Handanovic will play between the posts for Inter.


  • D'Ambrosio


  • Škriniar


  • Miranda


  • Santon


Inter boss Spalletti has surprised many with his choice of back line this season, but to his credit his defence has served him well remaining unbeaten as they do this term. Danilo D’Ambrosio keeps Joao Cancelo on the bench at right-back, as does Davide Santon with Yuto Nagatomo on the opposite side. Milan Skriniar has impressed since his arrival from Sampdoria this summer and will partner Miranda in central defence.?


?Spalletti again has a number of options at his disposal this weekend. The most likely set-up will see Joao Mario and Borja Valero holding the two central midfield berths, with Ivan Perisic and and Antonio Candreva in the wide areas. Marcelo Brozovic is prime candidate to play as number ten. 


  • Icardi


?Having scored five goals in his last three games, Mauro Icardi is on fine form for the trip to Turin. With the Croatian duo of Perisic and Brozovic behind the Argentine in an attacking three, Icardi can be confident of continuing his scoring streak for the trip to Juventus this weekend.
