Inter boss Claudio Ranieri will be without the services of goalkeeper Julio Cesar, who is out with a thigh injury, while defenders Maicon and Yuto Nagatomo are nursing problems as well. Philippe Coutinho trained on his own and will miss the game while Cristian Chivu is suspended.

Sulley Muntari picked up a knock on international duty during the week and could sit out the encounter at San Siro.

New Cagliari coach Davide Ballardini will be missing pint-sized playmaker Andrea Cossu and influential defender Davide Astori due to injury. Moestafa El Kabir will also miss the match due to injury.

  • Inter has scored only two goals in Serie A action at San Siro in the 2011-12 campaign.
  • The Nerazzurri have picked up just one win in their last five league matches, losing three and drawing the other.
  • Claudio Ranieri's side has kept only one clean sheet in its last seven domestic games.
  • Cagliari's last win over Inter came in 1995 at the Stadio Sant'Elia.
  • Davide Ballardini's men are winless in their last five matches with three draws and two defeats.
  • The Sardinians have scored seven goals in five encounters on the road this season.
