Inter are in a poor run of form and a loss against Jose Mourinho’s side would be their fourth Serie A defeat in the first eight games. Roma meanwhile, were beaten by Atalanta last time out and will want to avoid getting into a rut with another defeat.
Roma are four points off of Napoli and Atalanta at the top whilst Inter are another point further back.
Inter v AS Roma: Predicted line-ups
There are a lot of injury question marks for both Inter and AS Roma for this match but one thing is certain; Simone Inzaghi won’t be able to count on Marcelo Brozovic as he is both suspended and injured.
He could welcome Romelu Lukaku straight back into the starting line-up whilst Hakan Calhanoglu may be fit enough to make an appearance too.
Mourinho is known to be concerned about the fitness of Paulo Dybala due to his role in Argentina’s international matches this week but he should still start the match, especially given Lorenzo Pellegrini may be out injured.
Inter predicted XI v AS Roma (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Asllani, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Dzeko.
AS Roma predicted XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Mancini, Smalling, Vina; Celik, Cristante, Matic, Spinazzola; El Shaarawy, Dybala, Abraham.
