Inter coach Rafael Benitez will be a plumber against Twente as he tries hard to unclog their blocked path, or his future could be swept away and down the drain for good.
Benitez is hoping for life-saving continuity when Inter welcome Twente in the Champions League. Anything less could fire his move from the club.
President Massimo Moratti has stood by the Spaniard with a series of talks to set up an action plan and confirm his faith.
But Il Corriere dello Sport predicts a loss tonight will trigger the countdown to an explosive exit.
Players lacking form, injuries and a lack of domination has seen Benitez's grip slip.
In Tuesday's press conference he said a win would start "a phase of revival". A loss though could seal his fate.
