Luca Pellegrini (Ankle Injury), Weston McKennie (Metatarsal Fracture), Manuel Locatelli (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury), Federico Chiesa (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Kaio Jorge (Patella rupture) aren’t available for Juventus gaffer Massimiliano Allegri.

We believe Nerazzurri could decide to begin the game with a 3-5-2 lineup, choosing Samir Handanovic, Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni, Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ivan Perisic, Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez.
We’ve got the feeling that Juventus might need a bit of good fortune to score goals against this Inter Milan team who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
