Team News

  • Terlizzi will replace Contini in the three-man defence, starting alongside Paci and Felipe.
  • Rosina and Reginaldo are favoured to play behind the lone striker, leaving Valiani on the bench.
  • Bogdani is going to lead the attack once again after Calaiò's departure.
  • In the last days of the January transfer window Inter completed a number of new signings, but none are likely to start in Siena.
  • Milito should be back available after recovering from his injury, but the Argentinian looks set to start on the bench.
  • Also Cambiasso will have to sit out as Zanetti and Gargano will play in the middle of the field.

Prediction

  • After beating Sampdoria, Siena went on to lose in Udine, falling to their 7th defeat in their last 8 matches. Safety is six points adrift, but to keep hopes alive the Tuscans will have to overperform and beat Inter.
  • Inter have been inconsistent ever since beating Juventus in Turin. That moment should have been the positive twist to their season, but instead it prevented the team from progressing. Stramaccioni has to work on the psychological side of his coaching, but in the meantime the club have brought new players without any clear strategy.
  • Siena may even try to surprise Inter by attacking from the first minute. Their need for points and the fact that the Neroazzurri are going through a difficult moment could give Iachini the courage he needs to play on the offensive. Should the hosts take an early lead, they will sit and defend tight. Otherwise, Inter look favoured in the long run, especially as Milito is back and could be fielded in the second half.
