Inter have Wesley Sneijder, Giampaolo Pazzini and Mauro Zarate as they try to end their San Siro taboo against Chievo.
The Nerazzurri are the only team yet to score a single goal on home turf in Serie A this season.
They are also coming off two consecutive top flight defeats, though have improved in the Champions League with a midweek victory away to Lille.
The injury list includes Walter Samuel, Diego Forlan, Philippe Coutinho, Andrea Ranocchia and Andrea Poli.
Pazzini and Zarate reunite with Sneijder, replicating the side that won in France on Tuesday evening.
Chievo have a reputation as giant-killers and have already beaten Napoli and Genoa, holding Juventus last week.
They are without Gennaro Sardo for the next month due to a thigh strain. Ex-Milan striker Alberto Paloschi is the partner for Sergio Pellissier.
