Coppa Italia preview: Inter - Roma

Inter have a 1-0 advantage heading into the second-leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final with Roma on Wednesday night at San Siro


PROBABLE LINE-UPS
Inter (4-4-2)

Julio Cesar; Maicon, Materazzi, Lucio, Chivu; Zanetti, Cambiasso, Kharja, Coutinho; Pazzini, Eto'o

Inter Milan


Inter coach Leonardo will welcome Yuto Nagatomo back into the fold as the Japan international has recovered from flu. Wesley Sneijder and Dejan Stankovic trained apart from the rest of the squad and will not feature while Andrea Ranocchia is suspended.

Roma (4-2-3-1)

Doni; Cassetti, Burdisso, Juan, Riise; Pizarro, De Rossi; Perrotta, Simplicio, Vucinic; Borriello

Roma


Roma coach Vincenzo Montella is without a host of players, including captain Francesco Totti who is serving the last match of his ban for chopping down Mario Balotelli in the cup final last year. Taddei is also suspended, while Matteo Brighi is out for the season after fracturing his fibula at the weekend against Milan.

Simone Perrotta and Daniele De Rossi are able to feature for the visitors as their three-match bans in Serie A do not affect their Coppa Italia eligibility.
