These are all Serie A Week 20 fixtures called off on January 6 due to COVID-19 outbreaks.

A win here would put the Nerazzurri top of the Serie A table, one point clear of rivals Milan.

“It is certainly a very important match, which arrives in a particular moment of the season,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have played a lot of games, but we know how important this clash is for us.”

Samir Handanovic is out with a back injury, so Ionut Radu gets his first Serie A appearance of the season, having played only one Coppa Italia game against Empoli in January.

Alessandro Bastoni is in the squad too, but cannot be used. We have faith in who will replace them.”

Joaquin Correa starts upfront, with Arturo Vidal, Felipe Caicedo and Robin Gosens out injured.

“Correa is in good shape, I have many choices in attack and I made the decision this morning, because Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez are also doing well. I hope to get Caicedo back against Udinese.”
