Juventus (JUV) vs Inter Milan (INT) Dream11 Fantasy Suggestions
Romelu Lukaku has been exceptional for Inter Milan this season and has registered 22 goals and 11 assists in the Serie A. The Belgian striker is at his peak under Antonio Conte at the moment and has developed a penchant for making an impact on the big stage.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been Juventus’ saving grace this season and the Bianconeri will need their talisman to step up in one of the most important games of their season. Ronaldo was unable to find the back of the net against AC Milan last week and will want to make amends in this fixture.
Nicolo Barella and Achraf Hakimi have also been impressive for Inter Milan this season and will need to serve as attacking outlets this weekend. Juan Cuadrado has played an important role in Juventus’ midfield and will be a key player in this match.

Stefan de Vrij is an alternative option in the defensive line and has also been impressive for Inter Milan this season. Antonio Conte’s emphasis on defence has served his back-line well and will play a key role against Juventus.
Federico Chiesa has managed to pull Andrea Pirlo’s side out of difficult situations this season and is a good pick in the midfield. Rodrigo Bentancur can also be a match-winner on his day and will have to be at his best against Inter Milan.
