Inter face Getafe with the same XI that beat Atalanta 2-0, with Diego Godin in defence, Lautaro Martinez partnering Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen on the bench.

The winners of this one-off clash will go into the Final Eight stage of the tournament, as it was meant to be played over two legs in February and March, but called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Antonio Conte took Inter to second place with a 2-0 win away to Atalanta and uses the same starting XI, which means Eriksen and Milan Skriniar are on the bench.

Godin gets the nod in defence with Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni, while Danilo D’Ambrosio and Ashley Young are given the wide roles.

Lautaro Martinez partners Romelu Lukaku, with Alexis Sanchez ready to come off the bench if needed to shake things up.

Getafe are one of the more defensively solid sides in Spain, but seem to have lost some of that reliability since the lockdown.

Deyverson and Kenedy are no longer part of the squad, as their loans have expired, while striker Oghenekaro Etebo is out of action.

Nemanja Maksimovic is expected to be in a slightly more advanced role to support Jaime Mata, with Jorge Molina sent to the bench and Timor bolstering the midfield.
