Lucio, Douglas Maicon and Wesley Sneijder are among the Inter players missing their match with Trabzonspor.
The Nerazzurri travel to Turkey for Tuesday’s Champions League clash at the Huseyin Avni Aker stadium.
Sneijder pulled out during the warm-up of yesterday’s 2-1 win over Cagliari and was diagnosed with a second-degree thigh strain, which could keep him sidelined for around three weeks.
Lucio and Maicon are also out of action along with Sulley Ali Muntari, Diego Forlan and Emiliano Viviano.
Inter squad: 1 Julio Cesar, 12 Luca Castellazzi, 21 Paolo Orlandoni; 6 Lucio, 16 Luca Caldirola, 23 Andrea Ranocchia, 25 Walter Samuel, 26 Cristian Chivu, 37 Davide Faraoni, 42 Jonathan, 55 Yuto Nagatomo; 4 Javier Zanetti, 5 Dejan Stankovic, 8 Thiago Motta, 11 Ricardo Alvarez, 19 Esteban Cambiasso, 20 Joel Obi, 29 Coutinho, 48 Lorenzo Crisetig;7 Giampaolo Pazzini, 22 Diego Milito, 28 Mauro Zarate
