Probable line-ups: Inter-Borussia

Inter coach Antonio Conte could give Christian Eriksen and Alexis Sanchez the go ahead against Borussia Mönchengladbach tonight.

The match at San Siro kicks off at 20.00 UK time.

The Nerazzurri aim to bounce back from the loss in the Milan derby with three points in the first match of the Champions League group stage against the visitors from the Bundesliga.

Denmark international Eriksen seems set to start against the Germans, expected to sit behind Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez in the attack of a 3-4-1-2.

Milan Skriniar, Ashley Young, Roberto Gagliardini and Ionut Radu are still out with coronavirus, but Alessandro Bastoni is back in the matchday squad.

The young centre-back has recovered from the disease, but Conte confirmed he will start on the bench tonight.

Aleksandar Kolarov should continue in his absence from the line-up, with Danilo D’Ambrosio and Stefan de Vrij completing the back three.

Achraf Hakimi and Ivan Perisic seems set to start out wide for the Beneamata, with Nicolò Barella and Arturo Vidal in the middle.

Gladbach arrive after a 1-1 draw with Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga and Marco Rose could continue with a 3-4-1-2 formation of his own.

Jonas Hofmann seems set to support the two strikers, as Marcus Thuram could be paired with Alassane Plea instead of Breel-Donald Embolo.

Inter (probable): Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Kolarov; Hakimi, Barella, Vidal, Perisic; Eriksen; Sanchez, Lukaku

Borussia (probable): Sommer; Ginter, Elvedi, Bensebaini; Lainer, Kramer Neuhaus, Wendt; Hofmann; Plea, Thuram
