Claudio Ranieri will be without the services of influential midfielders Wesley Sneijder, Dejan Stankovic and Thiago Motta who are all out injured. Maicon, Ivan Cordoba and Emiliano Viviano are still sidelined with knee problems while Andrea Poli is not yet ready to feature for the first team. Andrea Ranocchia is suspended for picking up a red card against Novara. Giampaolo Pazzini will have to pass a late fitness test to face Napoli on Saturday.

Walter Mazzarri will be unable to call on his star striker Edinson Cavani, who limped off in the second half of the Champions League win over Villarreal midweek with an ankle injury. Defender Miguel Britos and midfielder Blerim Dzemaili will also miss the crunch class at San Siro.

  • Inter is unbeaten in its last 14 Serie A matches at San Siro.
  • The Nerazzurri have won two games in a row in all competitions since Claudio Ranieri replaced Gian Piero Gasperini as coach.
  • Napoli has failed to score in two of its first four Serie A encounters this season.
  • The Coppa Italia holders beat Walter Mazzarri's men 3-1 at San Siro before playing out a 1-1 draw at the San Paolo during the 2010-11 campaign.
  • The southern Italians have only win in their last five league games away from home (W1 D1 L3).
  • Inter has scored 10 goals in its last five home Serie A matches (W4 D1 L0).
