Leonardo: Inter Must Take Advantage Of Francesco Totti-less Roma

Inter coach Leonardo has spotted Roma weaknesses as he trains the scope on points for Sunday's big game...
Inter coach Leonardo is ready to play on Roma's weakness after they were handicapped by the absence of Francesco Totti.

"He is a great player, and when he is not there Roma lose a great resource," Leonardo told the press.

"The confrontation between Inter and Roma is now a tradition and the recent past has been very important.

"It will be a great game and, as always, very intense. It is a game that can offer us important signals."

The Nerazzurri were hit by the four-match ban of Cristian Chivu after he punched Bari's Marco Rossi on Thursday.

Leonardo is eager not to let the upshot of Bari anger influence his players against Roma as he puts a lid on the controversy.

"We have spoken with Chivu. He is an extraordinary guy and the first to recognize he made a mistake.

"He was rightly banned and the discourse is now closed. It is part of the past now."
