Line-ups: Sneijder's back

Wesley Sneijder is back in the starting XI as Inter welcome Genoa in the Coppa Italia Round of 16 clash this evening.

The Dutchman made a brief appearance in the 1-0 derby win over Milan at the weekend, but that was his first game since November.

Sneijder starts in support of lone striker Luc Castaignos, while Andrea Poli also gets a rare start.

Cristian Chivu has been rested as a precautionary measure due to a slight muscular problem, confirmed the official Inter website.

Genoa have completely revamped their line-up, as Coach Pasquale Marino gives Ze Eduardo and Lucas Pratto the forward reins.

New signing Giuseppe Sculli is on the bench after his transfer from Lazio.

Kick-off at San Siro is at 20.00 UK time.

Inter: 12 Castellazzi; 13 Maicon, 2 Cordoba, 23 Ranocchia, 4 Zanetti; 37 Faraoni, 19 Cambiasso, 18 Poli, 20 Obi; 10 Sneijder; 30 Castaignos
Inter bench: 21 Orlandoni, 6 Lucio, 8 Thiago Motta, 11 Alvarez, 22 Milito, 28 Zarate, 55 Nagatomo
Genoa: 22 Lupatelli; 31 Sampirisi, 5 Granqvist, 24 Moretti, 7 Rossi; 33 Kucka, 14 Seymour, 10 Brisa; 19 Jorquera; 2 Pratto, 9 Ze Eduardo
Genoa bench: 73 Scarpi, 11 Jankovic, 20 Mesto, 27 Constant, 32 Marchiori, 81 Sculli, 88 Biondini
