INT vs MIL Dream11 team tips for Serie A 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Inter Milan forward Edin Dzeko has been in impressive form for his side in the ongoing season. The former Manchester City striker has netted nine goals and provided four assists in 21 Serie A matches this season. Having accumulated 611 fantasy points so far, one must pick Dzeko in your fantasy team for this mouth-watering derby.

Hakan Calhanoglu has been one of the standout players for Serie A league leaders Inter Milan. The 27-year-old has scored six goals and registered eight assists in 19 matches this season. Calhanoglu has already amassed 589 fantasy points and is a must-have in your fantasy team at 9 credits.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar will be the defender to watch out for. The Slovakia international has been rock solid at the back, helping Inter concede just 17 goals in 22 matches.
