The starlet has already missed the last five matches for the side after disciplinary problems with coach Mourinho and the situation is continuing to drag on, to the discontent of president Massimo Moratti.
The Italy Under-21 international was seen leaving the Pinetina training ground earlier today ahead of his team-mates, prompting the media to suggest he will not feature against the Russians.
During the recent run without Balotelli, Inter have earned mixed results. They defeated Chelsea and Livorno, but suffered losses to Roma and Catania, also drawing with Palermo.
The club themselves have yet to confirm the news that Balotelli will not be in the line-up at the San Siro.
