Thiago Motta adds to Inter worries

Thiago Motta has joined Wesley Sneijder, Dejan Stankovic and MacDonald Mariga in missing Inter's match with Fiorentina.

The Nerazzurri go into the Sunday afternoon kick-off without many of their key midfielders.

Thiago Motta was a late addition to the absentee list and is not even in the squad, so will be in the stands tomorrow.

Leonardo confirmed Sneijder had not recovered from his fitness problem, while Stankovic is a more long-term case.

Mariga was always going to miss out due to his ban, leaving only four midfielders for Leo to choose from.

Inter squad: 1 Julio Cesar, 12 Luca Castellazzi, 21 Paolo Orlandoni; 4 Javier Zanetti, 6 Lucio, 13 Maicon, 15 Andrea Ranocchia, 23 Marco Materazzi, 25 Walter Samuel, 26 Cristian Chivu, 37 Marco Davide Faraoni, 55 Yuto Nagatomo; 14 Houssine Kharja, 19 Esteban Cambiasso, 20 Joel Obi, 29 Philippe Coutinho; 7 Giampaolo Pazzini, 9 Samuel Eto'o, 22 Diego Milito, 27 Goran Pandev, 31 Denis Alibec
