Inter Milan eye Derby d'Italia bragging rights against in-form Juventus - get Serie A 2021-22 fantasy tips
Inter Milan (INT) host Juventus (JUV) in the Derby d'Italia in Matchweek 9 of the Serie A 2021-22 season at the San Siro in the early hours of Monday, October 25. The game will kick off at 12:15 AM IST.
INT vs JUV Dream11 Prediction
Defending champions Inter Milan sit third on the points table and will likely retain the spot. Simone Inzaghi’s men saw their unbeaten run end at Lazio in the last matchweek, and they will look to end the solid run of Juventus, who have won their last four league games on the trot.
Juventus’ indifferent start to the campaign makes them underdogs in the latest edition of the Derby d'Italia, but they remain optimistic of a positive result given the Bianconeri have lost just one of their meetings against Inter - all competitions - since 2016.
INT vs JUV Dream11 tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Eden Dzeko is not showing any signs of slowing down in the Serie A. The veteran striker has registered six goals and two assists for the Nerazzurri in eight games, and will hope to better his tally of two goals and an assist against Juventus in the league.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Manuel Locatelli is Juventus’ best hope to seal a win in the Derby d’Italia. The summer signing has begun his career with the Old Lady with two goals and one assist in the Serie A and is well-placed to outmanoeuvre his way past the Inter Milan defence.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Both Inter Milan and Napoli have conceded 10-plus goals in the Serie A this term, meaning there is no direct defender to be an outright favourite for this position. However, it is to be noted that Milan Skriniar could be an asset, given his attribute as a goalscoring defender.
When it comes to goalkeepers, Samir Handanovic is the first-choice pick. The Inter captain may have kept just one clean sheet in the league this term but fantasy players can place their trust in the Slovenian to deny the likes of Alvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa on Monday.
INT vs JUV probable playing XI
INT playing XI (probable): Samir Handanovic (goalkeeper and captain), Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni, Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Federico Dimarco, Edin Dzeko, Joaquin Correa
JUV playing XI (probable): Wojciech Szczesny (goalkeeper), Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci (captain), Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro, Aaron Ramsey, Manuel Locatelli, Rodrigo Bentancur, Federico Bernandeschi, Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa
