Team news
Gianluigi Buffon is a huge doubt for the home side meaning former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny may deputise.

Mario Mandzukic and Giorgio Chiellini are available for Juventus though having missed the win in Greece.

Miranda and Roberto Gagliardini are set to return having missed the win over Chievo through suspension.

The pressure will be on Inter top scorer Mauro Icardi here and he will lead the line.
