The troubled Nerazzurri will be looking to get their stuttering league campaign back on track with a win over Domenico Di Carlo's men at San Siro on Sunday afternoon


PROBABLE LINE-UPS

INTER

Julio Cesar
Maicon, Lucio, Cordoba, Chivu
Zanetti, Stankovic, Cambiasso
Sneijder
Pazzini, Milito
CHIEVO

Sorrentino
Frey, Mandelli, Cesar, Jokic
Bradley, Rigoni,
Hetemaj
Sammarco
Pellissier, Thereau


Inter coach Claudio Ranieri will be missing a handful of regulars as Andrea Ranocchia, Andrea Poli, Philippe Coutinho, Diego Forlan and Walter Samuel are all out with various injuries. Ivan Cordoba should get the nod to partner Lucio in the centre of defence, while Wesley Sneijder is set to make his first Serie A appearance since September 20.

Chievo boss Domenico Di Carlo will have to make do without the services of defenders Gennaro Sardo and Santiago Morero at San Siro on Sunday.

The Italy international scored the winner against Lille on Tuesday in the Champions League and will look to duplicate that feat on Sunday, in what amounts to a must-win match for the hosts.

Chievo have failed to score in their past two encounters and will be relying on the veteran striker to provide the firepower up front as they look to heap more misery on Claudio Ranieri’s outfit.

Editor's Prediction

Inter have lost two league matches in a row and hover precariously over the relegation zone. A win is of the utmost importance and the Nerazzurri should be able to take care of business against the Flying Donkeys.
