Inter themselves have discover their good form again, grabbing four wins and one draw in their last five fixtures. Nerazzurri won their latest Serie A fixture 2-1 against Bologna in a hard fought battle.

Favre will be happy knowing that he has a relative healthy squad ahead of their midweek Champions League clash. There’s just some minor concern with Marco Reus and Marcel Scmhelzer, but they should be available for selection.
Paco Alcacer is set to return in the starting lineup again after missing out on their previous meeting at San Siro. Axel Witsel and Thomas Delaney will still be Dortmund’s main midfield duo for this home game.
Inter have some absentee for this away trip to Dortmund with Alexis Sanchez and Danilo D’Ambrosio are injured. Kwadwo Asamoah’s condition is also uncertain, which means Biraghi could start on Tuesday.
Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez will still be Inter’s main duo up front. Conte will also hoping for another solid defensive display and strong performance from their keeper, Handanovic.
Head to Head Records:
Their previous meeting in competitive European competition was that earlier match up at San Siro which Inter won 2-0.
Dortmund will be hunting for three points to keep their Champions League hopes alive. Playing at home should also add more confidence into Der BVB in their attempt to take down Inter.
Conte’s men won’t be easy to beat though especially since they are also targeting a victory. This tie can easily go either way, but Dortmund are slight favorite as they are playing in front of their fans.
