Pasquale Marino admits his Genoa side face “an extremely dangerous” match with Andrea Stramaccioni’s all new Inter.
The Nerazzurri prepare to make their debut under their third Coach of the campaign, as Stramaccioni replaced Claudio Ranieri on Monday night.
“It will certainly be an extremely dangerous game that we must face with courage,” said Genoa tactician Marino.
“When a new Coach comes in, there is always going to be a shake-up that fires the team on. It’s also physiological for them to have a dip in form after so many years of success.
“I have never won at San Siro as a Coach and it is also true that Inter, despite their moment of difficulty, remain a great side.
“Despite all of that, I still believe we will do well. I am still thinking about the line-up to use, as during the week we tested out several different options.”
Juraj Kucka, Luca Antonelli, Andreas Granqvist and Kevin Constant are unavailable for the trip to San Siro.
