Inter have major injury concerns upfront ahead of Juventus clash

Every time Juventus and Inter meet in the famous Derby d’Italia, it is always a special occasion, regardless of their positions in the table.

But the fact that the two giants are lurking outside the top 4 spots makes this weekend’s tilt all the more crucial, as neither side is allowing a slip.

As we all know, the Bianconeri will go into Sunday’s clash with a depleted squad, as a large number of players remain on the treatment table.

Nonetheless, Simone Inzaghi has some major concerns of her own, especially up front.

After returning from a long break, Romelu Lukaku has picked up another injury and looks set for another long spell on the sidelines.

To make matters even worse for the Beneamata, their direct replacement may not be available either.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Edin Dzeko is a big doubt for the Derby d’Italia match against Juventus.

The former Roma captain will most likely skip the irrelevant Champions League match against Bayern Munich tonight, and his condition will be closely monitored in the run-up to Sunday’s encounter.

While Dzeko surely adds another dimension to Inter’s attack, Inzaghi could still rely on a formidable Argentine duo in the form of Lautaro Martínez and Joaquín Correa.

Whatever injury problems the Nerazzurri may have at the moment, no team has been hit by the injury bug more than Juventus.
