Gian Piero Gasperini will be looking to open up his reign as Inter coach with a win at the Renzo Barbera on Sunday night, and should have enough to secure the start he wants

Palermo (4-4-2): Tzorvas; Pisano, Silvestre, Cetto, Balzaretti; Alvarez, Barreto, Migliaccio, Ilicic; Hernandez, Micoli

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini sacked coach Stefano Pioli and his entire staff before the season even kicked off. Star players Javier Pastore, Salvatore Sirigu, Cesare Bovo and Mattia Cassani all left the club in the summer. Adam Simon and Luca Di Matteo will miss the clash due to injury.

Inter (3-4-3): Julio Cesar; Ranocchia, Samuel, Lucio; Nagatomo, Cambiasso, Sneijder, Zanetti; Forlan, Milito, Zarate

The Gian Piero Gasperini era will begin at Inter on Sunday with the 53-year-old unable to call on Maicon, Thiago Motta, Emiliano Viviano, Ivan Cordoba and Cristian Chivu, who are all sidelined with various injuries. Diego Forlan and Mauro Zarate will likely make their Serie A debuts for the Nerazzurri on Sunday.
