Inter travel west to face Sampdoria on Monday night in Serie A Matchday 22 as they seek to put together a run of form that can set them apart from the other Champions League qualification challengers.
Having now won three of the last four in Serie A, the most recent being the Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan, Simone Inzaghi will be desperate to make it three wins in a row and create a gap between the Nerazzurri and the likes of AS Roma, Lazio, AC Milan and Atalanta.
As for Sampdoria, they are a team still in dire need of points, especially after having three turned into one by a 99th-minute Matteo Pessina penalty away at Monza on Matchday 21.
Sampdoria vs Inter: Probable line-ups
After coming on during the derby and having a goal ruled out by VAR, there is a belief that Romelu Lukaku could start for Inter in what they will hope to be a simpler three points. Marcelo Brozovic could remain on the bench but there are no major concerns for Inzaghi.
Mehdi Leris will be suspended for Sampdoria, whilst the likes of Abdelhamid Sabiri and Manolo Gabbiadini, as well as Fabio Quagliarella, will be evaluated in the days leading up to the match.
