Both teams are fresh off controversial defeats decided by penalties, as Inter were furious with the official for awarding a last-gasp Fiorentina spot-kick for handball when it clearly struck Danilo D’Ambrosio’s chest.

Cagliari weren’t any happier, as they saw a precious point evaporate in their 1-0 defeat to Sampdoria.

With Mauro Icardi still out of the squad and looking less likely by the day to return, the Nerazzurri are increasingly reliant on Lautaro Martinez, Ivan Perisic and ex-Cagliari hero Radja Nainggolan.

It’s a special game for Perisic, his 150th competitive appearance in an Inter jersey.

The Sardinians have Joao Pedro back from suspension and can look to Inter transfer target Nicolò Barella.

Luciano Spalletti’s men cannot fail, because Milan are only two points behind them and Roma three adrift, meaning Inter could end the weekend sliding from third place to fifth and out of the Champions League spots.

Rolando Maran is looking to break his Spalletti curse, having lost all six previous Serie A meetings with the Coach.
