Probable line-ups: Inter vs Atalanta

Inter are missing several key players ahead of their showdown with free-scoring Atalanta tonight at San Siro.

It’s joint first against fifth in the Serie A table, and the game kicks off at 19:45 GMT. You can read the match preview here.

Inter coach Antonio Conte has several absences going into the game.

Kwadwo Asamoah has a knee problem, whilst Danilo D’Ambrosio is out with a muscle injury.

Milan Skriniar and Nicolo Barella are also out via suspension, leaving limited options for Conte.

Therefore Diego Godin is expected to replace Skriniar in the back three for Inter, and in midfield, Matias Vecino or Stefano Sensi could start alongside Roberto Gagliardini and Marcelo Brozovic.

Antonio Candreva and Cristiano Biraghi will continue in the wing-back positions for Conte's side.

In attack it's expected that Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, both of whom got on the score sheet against Napoli last Monday, will again start.

La Dea meanwhile have no injury worries, or suspensions.

Gian Piero Gasperini has a full squad to choose from, including the returning Duvan Zapata.

The Colombian striker hasn’t started a match since the beginning of October, after picking up an injury whilst on international duty.

Zapata will start from the bench as he eases his way back into fitness, having made his comeback as a late substitute in the 5-0 victory over Parma.

Gasperini is expected to utilise the now standard 3-4-1-2 formation.

The only doubt for Gasperini is who will play in behind forwards Papu Gomez and Josip Ilicic.

Mario Pasalic is favourite to get the nod ahead of Luis Muriel and Ruslan Malinovskyi.

Probable line-ups:

Inter (3-5-2): Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Bastoni; Candreva, Gagliardini, Brozovic, Sensi, Biraghi; Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez

Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Castagne, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Pasalic; Ilicic, Gomez
