Team News

  • Inter's terrible injury problems were worsened at the weekend, when Nagatomo and Gargano were both withdrawn with potentially season-ending injuries.
  • Cristian Chivu has been confirmed as out of this game and Andrea Stramaccioni has suggested that youngsters Mateo Kovacic and Marco Benassi could form a midfield partnership.
  • Fredy Guarin and Alvaro Pereira have both picked up enough bookings in the Coppa Italia this season to mean that they are suspended for this game.
  • Ricky Alvarez and Juan Jesus have also been confirmed as doubts, further adding to Inter's worries.
  • Daniele De Rossi is a doubt for Roma, but he has made significant strides in his quest for fitness and could make his return at San Siro.
  • Nicolas Burdisso is suspended having picked up 2 yellow cards in the competition so far this season.
  • The likes of Vasilis Torosidis and Marquinhos should return to the fold after sitting out at the weekend.


  • Roma have the luxury of having been able to rest players at the weekend and have them fresh for this match, something that Inter cannot currently do.
  • The home side has a lengthy injury list and Andrea Stramaccioni might be forced into using some of the younger members of his squad, with his priority most certainly lying in the league.
  • Despite their great many absentees in attacking areas, Inter did manage to score 3 times in their last home game against Atalanta. They need to win here - as they are trailing 2-1 from the first leg back in January - but that may be beyond them against a side that have only lost one of their last eight matches. Roma have also won 3 and drawn 3 of their last 6 meetings with Inter and could hang on for the draw they need to progress to the final.
