Team News

  • All of Stramaccioni's typical starting defence will be unavailable, so the backline will be Silvestre, Cambiasso and Chivu.
  • The emergency at the back will also affect the midfield, where Guarin will cover for the Argentinian moved back into defence.
  • Therefore, Inter's manager will probably start with three attacking players. Palacio will be the link between the midfield and Milito and Cassano.
  • Abbruscato may be kept on the bench, together with Vukusic.
  • Celik and Jonathas will start in their place, supported by Weiss, who seems to have recovered from his injury.
  • Blasi is back available as well, but he should start as a substitute.

Prediction

  • Inter failed to obtain points from Lazio and Udinese and drew with Genoa in between. This three-match streak without victory is reminiscent of the poor form the team experienced after beating Juventus. The feeling is that Stramaccioni's team works well without pressure but fails to seize big chances to move up the table.
  • For the second time this season Pescara have won two back-to-back matches and moved away from the bottom of the table. Beating Fiorentina at the Franchi was a major achievement that could give the team the boost in morale they need to travel to Milan.
  • The Neroazzurri are struggling with injuries and bans, especially in defence. Stramaccioni will have to work on the psychological side of this match to prepare his team to face an enthusiastic Pescara side right now. After winning in Florence, they may feel confident enough to get more points here.
