A 3-2 defeat to Roma in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday saw Inter exit the competition at the semi-final stage and condemned the Nerazzurri to their third straight defeat in all competitions.

The result heightens the pressure on coach Andrea Stramaccioni going into Sunday's Serie A clash with Parma, as he look to reverse a disastrous run of form that has left the club in seventh spot in the table.

Inter's cause has not been helped by an injury list surely unrivalled in any of Europe's major leagues, with 13 first-team players absent, including high profile absentees Antonio Cassano, Diego Milito, Walter Gargano, Fredy Guarin and Esteban Cambiasso.

Visitors Parma have injury concerns of their own, as McDonald Mariga, Raffaele Palladino and Emilio MacEachen miss out. The Gialloblu were soundly beaten 3-0 by Udinese last Saturday, but will be buoyed by the opportunity to heap more misery on their troubled hosts.

  • Inter were beaten 1-0 by Parma in the first clash between these two sides back in November.

  • Inter have scored their biggest percentage of goals - 24% - in the final15 minutes of games.
