Inter defender Bastoni suffering from fever, likely to miss Juventus

Tonight, the Allianz Stadium will be the scene of one of the most anticipated clashes of the Serie A season, when Juventus and Inter meet at the Allianz Stadium.

The Bianconeri will be able to count on some key players who have recently returned to action, albeit to varying degrees. We are talking about people of the stature of Federico Chiesa, Angel Di Maria and Gleison Bremer.

Max Allegri’s side are still missing several big players, such as Paul Pogba and Leandro Paredes, but their opponents will have concerns of their own.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport via Ilbianconero, Inter will probably have to do without the services of Alessandro Bastoni.

According to reports, the Italian defender suffered from a fever in the night between Friday and Saturday. Although he traveled with his teammates to Turin, the source reveals that he had missed yesterday’s training.

The 23-year-old is a key member of Simone Inzaghi’s backline but is also known for his crossing prowess, delivering three assists in all competitions so far this season.

Earlier today, we mentioned Bastoni’s name in Inter’s starting lineup alongside Milan Skriniar and Francesco Acerbi.

Therefore, the Italian veteran will likely replace his younger compatriot on the left of the defensive trio, with Stefan de Vrij between Acerbi and Skriniar.
