There are fears Antonio Cassano and Diego Milito will miss out on Inter’s trip to Roma this weekend.
Cassano picked up a thigh injury during the 3-2 Coppa Italia extra time victory over Bologna on Tuesday evening.
Tests ruled out a strain or a lesion, but the forward is still in doubt for Sunday’s game.
Milito did not play in the Coppa Italia and continues to struggle with a knee problem.
Alvaro Pereira underwent surgery to reduce a fractured nose this week, but will be available to play this weekend with the aid of a protective mask.
Rodrigo Palacio is therefore likely to start at the Olimpico with either Tommaso Rocchi or Marko Livaja.
In defence, Andrea Ranocchia and Juan Jesus are back from their bans, but Walter Samuel is also battling injury.
