The entire Inter squad, including Lucio, is making the trip to Germany for their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
The Nerazzurri lost the first leg 1-0 on home turf and must turn it around to continue defending their title.
Lucio is a major doubt to feature after suffering an upper thigh strain to the gluteal muscle during the 1-1 with Brescia.
The defender, a former Bayern man, has been called up for this game along with the not 100 per cent fit Thiago Motta, Esteban Cambiasso and Cristian Chivu.
Only the injured Diego Milito, Walter Samuel and David Suazo are left behind, as the rest of the squad is travelling to Munich.
Bizarrely, this includes January signing Giampaolo Pazzini, who is ineligible for the Champions League.
Meanwhile, Douglas Maicon is also struggling with a bout of flu.
