Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni is not expected to ring the changes ahead of the Coppa Italia quarter-final against Bologna at San Siro on Tuesday.

18-year-old Marco Benassi made his Serie A debut in the 2-0 win over Pescara on the weekend, though he is set to be replaced by Walter Gargano, as the Nerazzurri seek an extended cup run to alleviate their recent sketchy form.

Wesley Sneijder continues to ponder over a move away from Italy and can be expected to continue his absence from the first team, though Stramaccioni will be hoping his available senior players can see off the Rossoblu and book a place in the final four.

For the visitors, Panagiotis Kone could be preferred to Saphir Taider in midfield, with Alberto Gilardino set to lead the line.
