Inter continue their quest to retain the Scudetto as they welcome Cagliari to San Siro in Serie A this weekend.

Top spot in their Champions League group proved elusive for the Nerazzurri after they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away to Real Madrid in midweek.

However, Simone Inzaghi's men are riding the momentum of an eight-match unbeaten run in Serie A, taking an impressive 20 points from a possible 24 during that stretch.

Here's how Inter could line up.

Stefan Handanovic (GK) - Endured a shaky start to the season, but he's regained his composure in recent weeks.

Milan Skriniar (CB) - Could return to the right hand side of the defence with de Vrij scheduled to return.

Stefan de Vrij (CB) - The Dutchman has been missing for the last month through injury, but he's expected to return this weekend.

Alessandro Bastoni (CB) - A commanding defender and is still only 22-years-old.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Denzel Dumfries (RWB) - The Netherlands international is a powerful carrier of the ball down the flanks.

Roberto Gagliardini (CM) - Inzaghi may rest Barella against his former club ahead of a busy month.

Marcelo Brozovic (CM) - Integral to Inter's hopes with his intelligence from the base of the midfield.

Hakan Calhanoglu (CM) - Enjoying an impressive start to life at Inter after joining from city rivals Milan.

Ivan Perisic (LWB) - A huge threat from wing back with his ability to drive to the byline and deliver crosses.
