Inter will be determined not to relinquish their Serie A crown without a fight as they entertain Sampdoria on the final day of the league campaign.

The Nerazzurri must win and hope Sassuolo do the same in their home clash with leaders Milan as they aim for an improbable final day turnaround.

A run of four wins in a row has powered Inter to Coppa Italia success in recent weeks, but the Inter faithful will be left with a bitter taste in their mouth were they to surrender their league title to the club across the city.

Here's how the Nerazzurri could shape up as they go in search of victory.

GK: Samir Handanovic - Has endured a difficult campaign, but he won't be giving up Inter's Scudetto without a fight this weekend.

CB: Milan Skriniar - One of the most impressive defenders on the planet, combining the perfect blend of physicality and intelligence.

CB: Stefan de Vrij - A cerebral defender, proving very adept at covering space and marshalling the defensive line.

CB: Alessandro Bastoni - Returned from injury in the win over Cagliari last time out.

RWB: Matteo Darmian - Has dislodged Denzel Dumfries with a string of impressive performances.

CM: Nicolo Barella - Eleven assists this term, underlining his creative genius from midfield.

CM: Marcelo Brozovic - A standard-setter in midfield, comfortable taking the ball in even the tightest areas of the pitch.

CM: Hakan Calhanoglu - Facing the nightmare scenario, with the club he departed in the summer currently on the brink of sealing their first Scudetto since 2011.

LWB: Ivan Perisic - His extra time brace against Juventus delivered Inter's first Coppa Italia success in eleven years. Could be his final game if a new contract cannot be agreed.

ST: Lautaro Martinez - His 25 goals this season for the Nerazzurri is a remarkable return after the departure of Romelu Lukaku.

ST: Edin Dzeko - Has proven a good foil for Martinez given his ability to thrive in physical situations.
