Line-ups: Atalanta-Inter

Inter bring back Walter Samuel and try to end their Atalanta taboo this evening, as German Denis seeks his seventh goal against them.

Serie A Week 10 kicks off in Bergamo at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

This fixture is a Lombardy Derby and a real test for Walter Mazzarri’s men, as Inter haven’t won here since April 2008, scraping only two points from four visits.

Home and away, Atalanta are unbeaten against the Nerazzurri since 2010, celebrating two draws and two consecutive victories.

They famously won here 3-2 last season and 4-3 at San Siro earlier this year with a Denis hat-trick.

Denis leads the attack with support from Inter-owned Marko Livaja, while Maxi Moralez steps in for the injured Giacomo Bonaventura in a wider role.

There are problems in defence for Stefano Colantuono, who is missing Stefano Lucchini, Gianpaolo Bellini and the suspended Constantin Nica, so he switches to a 3-5-2 system.

Inter welcome back Samuel for his first match since April, having fully recovered from his injury, so he gives Andrea Ranocchia a rest.

Hugo Campagnaro, Javier Zanetti, Diego Milito, Cristian Chivu and the banned Ishak Belfodil are unavailable.

Mateo Kovacic takes the supporting role behind Rodrigo Palacio, moving Ricky Alvarez to central midfield.

Samir Handanovic returns in goal after his one-match ban.

Atalanta: Consigli; Stendardo, Yepes, Canini; Raimondi, Carmona, Cigarini, Brivio; Moralez; Livaja, Denis
