Vincenzo Montella's men travel to Milan on Sunday with the hosts desperate for victory following four consecutive defeats in Serie A, but the visitors could draw level on points


PROBABLE LINE-UPS


INTER


Julio Cesar
Faraoni, Lucio, Samuel, Nagatomo
Zanetti, Stankovic, Cambiasso
Sneijder
Forlan, Milito
CATANIA

Carrizo
Motta, Spolli, Legrottaglie, Marchese
Seymour, Lodi, Almiron
Barrientos, Bergessio, Gomez


Claudio Ranieri's side have a few injury concerns going into Sunday's clash, with Andrea Ranocchia and Ricardo Alvarez ruled out with thigh and muscle strains respectively, while Freddy Guarin is still nursing the calf injury that has plagued him since signing from Porto in January.

However, the hosts could be boosted by the return of Maicon after the Brazil international returned to training following a knee injury. Although he is unlikely to start the tie, the former Monaco man may well feature from the bench.

The visitors will travel to Milan without the services of Alessandro Potenza, with the former Fiorentina defender ruled out for the rest of the season with a cruciate ligament injury, while Andrea Campagnolo and David Suazo will also miss out.
