Claudio Ranieri: Inter-Roma Is A Scudetto Showdown

Claudio Ranieri believes Roma's Scudetto hopes could either inflate or deflate against Inter...
Claudio Ranieri admits there is palpable tension ahead of Roma's battle against Inter, but remains confident his side can hold their own in Milan.

And the fight to stay in power and within the Scudetto boundaries could land a knock-out punch tomorrow night.

"It will be a nice test, and a difficult one, but we are ready and will play a great game," Ranieri told the press.

"It's a very important game for us as we are fighting for the Scudetto and we want to play the game like we always have.

"Inter have changed philosophy as they are diffierent with Leonardo, but we have to be aware of all the problems we will face."

Francesco Totti is out with fever, while Adriano's shoulder problem has added to the headache.

"These things make it complicated as having the changes ready during matches has produced points for us in the past. Not having them makes it hard.

"But, the players know what they must do, they are determined and we are going there to play our game."
