Line-ups: Inter-Cagliari

Inter stick with the all-star trident attack against Cagliari and welcome back their first choice defenders.

The Nerazzurri can move to within two points of leaders Juventus with a victory at San Siro this afternoon.

Andrea Stramaccioni again uses the attacking trio of Rodrigo Palacio, Diego Milito and Antonio Cassano.

The changes are in defence, where Andrea Ranocchia and Walter Samuel return from injury and Juan Jesus is also fit to start despite a knock.

Wesley Sneijder, Fredy Guarin, Cristian Chivu, Dejan Stankovic and Joel Obi are all sidelined, but Philippe Coutinho is back on the bench.

Cagliari had such a strong start under Coach Ivo Pulga, winning four on the bounce, but have slowed their progress in recent weeks.

Lorenzo Ariaudo is the only absentee in defence, but Andrea Cossu supports Marco Sau and Nene.

Inter: Handanovic; Ranocchia, Samuel, Juan; Zanetti, Gargano, Cambiasso, Nagatomo; Palacio, Milito, Cassano

Inter bench: Castellazzi, Belec, Silvestre, Coutinho, Alvarez, Mariga, Pereira, Mbaye, duncan, Jonathan, Romano

Cagliari: Agazzi; Pisano, Rossettini, Astori, Avelar; Ekdal, Conti, Nainggolan; Cossu; Nene, Sau
