Inter have won the last two encounters by 1-0 scoreline and we can expect some more of the same.  The Nerazzurri’s defence has been suspect lately, conceding 10 goals in their last five games and will be without the service of central defenders Walter Samuel and Andrea Ranocchia (which will no doubt please some Interisti).

Still, this game has all the makings of another close affair that will probably be decided by a penalty, seeing as seven spot kicks have been awarded in the last seven league matches between the two teams.
