Both sides will aim to pick up from where they left off on Sunday and continue their winning runs by bagging another three points in Bergamo on Wednesday
Masiello, Capelli, Lucchini, Peluso
Schelotto, Cigarini, Padoin, Bonaventura
Maicon, Lucio, Chivu, Nagatomo
Zanetti, Motta, Stankovic
Coach Stefano Colantuono has a settled squad at his disposal for the visit of Inter, with Adriano Ferreira Pinto and Thomas Manfredini being the hosts' only absentees, meaning they should be unchanged from the side that beat Parma 2-1 on Sunday.
Meanwhile for their Milanese opponents, Claudio Ranieri is forced to manage without squad members Andrea Ranocchia, Andrea Poli, Philippe Coutinho, Diego Forlan and Walter Samuel, who are all out with various injuries.
However, the ex-Roma boss will have been extremely pleased by the way his team dug out an important three points against Chievo at the weekend, and will look to sustain their new-found form by promoting Diego Milito and Dejan Stankovic to the line-up, in favour of Esteban Cambiasso and Giampaolo Pazzini.
