The Nerazzurri are remarkably inconsistent, as they lurch from a 2-0 win over Juventus to 0-0 draw with Udinese, then tempestuous 2-1 Coppa Italia quarter-final victory over 10-man Milan.

The semi-final with Juve is coming up on Tuesday, but Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi are suspended for the first leg, so they’ll be eager to get all their energy out in this game instead.

Lautaro Martinez is his partner, especially after several days of negotiations to swap Alexis Sanchez with Roma striker Edin Dzeko on six-month loans.

Danilo D’Ambrosio is the only injury case, but others are rested ahead of the Coppa Italia, giving Christian Eriksen and Andrea Ranocchia rare starts.

Eriksen came off the bench to curl in the winning free kick against Milan midweek and is rewarded by replacing Marcelo Brozovic.

Antonio Conte is in the stands this evening, beginning his two-match ban for insulting the referee.

Benevento lost 5-2 to Inter when these sides met in September, but have since taken themselves to relative mid-table comfort.

Marco Sau is suspended, with Christian Maggio, Alessandro Tuia, Gaetano Letizia and Gabriele Moncini on the treatment table.

Gianluca Lapadula and Gianluca Caprari lead the attack, with Luca Caldirola making his return to the starting XI for the first time since November 28.

Inter: Handanovic; Skriniar, Ranocchia, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Eriksen, Gagliardini, Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku

Benevento: Montipò; Glik, Caldirola, Barba; Depaoli, Hetemaj, Viola, Ionita, Improta; Caprari, Lapadula
