Podolski took three shots during Inter's 4-1 win over Atalanta on Sunday, but he was unable to find the back of the net.

Podolski remains without a goal since his loan from Arsenal began, though he's gotten five starts in seven possible matches, so he's at least getting enough playing time to break through at some point.

Podolski is in the squad to face Juventus on Tuesday.

Podolski completed his loan to Inter on Monday and will immediately be in uniform, though it would be surprising if he was given a start so soon after joining the club.

Podolski made a late appearance in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Burnley, selected in the 80th minute.

Podolski made an impact in his brief stint, whistling a pair of powerful volleys that nearly scored (one was stopped by Tom Heaton, one reverberated off the near post). Podolski doesn't get anything added to his scoring ledger, but it could be a springboard to better things down the road.

Podolski was an unused substitute in Saturday's match at Sunderland.

Podolski, who fired a dramatic match-winning goal in the Champions League last week, was left on the bench for Saturday's victory at the Stadium of Light. The World Cup winner has yet to start in the Premier League this season, making him an underwhelming fantasy prospect.
