CONFIRMED: Inter v Roma line-ups - Vidic & Pjanic both start

Here is how Inter Milan and Roma will line up for their preseason friendly in Philadelphia on Saturday, with a former Manchester United star on show.

Inter starting XI: Handanovic; Andreolli, Vidic, Juan Jesus; Nagatomo, Jonathan, M'Vila, Kuzmanovic, Dodo; Botta, Icardi

AS Roma starting XI: Skorupski; Florenzi, Astori, Castan, Emanuelson; Pjanic, De Rossi, Nainggolan; Iturbe, Destro, Ljajic

The Serie A rivals will have the chance to get an early look at each other as they go head-to-head in their final group stage game of the International Champions Cup.

Both Roma and Inter sit on three points heading into the clash in the City of Brotherly Love, and will need Real Madrid to take points off of Manchester United later in the day to reach the final in Miami.

Roma fell 3-2 to the Red Devils in Denver before seeing off Real 1-0 at the Cotton Bowl, whilst Inter defeated Los Merengues in a penalty shootout in California before going down to United in the American capital via the same method.

Inter finished a disappointing fifth in the Italian top flight last term whilst Roma soared to second place in the standings, now seen by some as favourites for the Scudetto this season.

Coaches Walter Mazzarri and Rudi Garcia will both be keen to assess their sides against a strong domestic rival with the start of the 2014/15 campaign in a few weeks’ time.

The Giallorossi and Nerazzurri are set to meet on November 30 at the Stadio Olimpico in Serie A action, with the reverse date at San Siro booked for April 26.
