Inter boss Claudio Ranieri has named a 20-man squad for Friday’s Serie A clash with Bologna at San Siro.
Argentine veteran Walter Samuel, as expected, is out of the game along with January signing Fredy Guarin.
The absence of Dejan Stankovic and Ricky Alvarez too means that the Nerazzurri have just five midfielders available.
Goalkeeper Julio Cesar has been named in the party even though there are concerns over his elbow.
Goalkeepers: 1 Julio Cesar, 12 Luca Castellazzi, 21 Paolo Orlandoni.
Defenders: 2 Ivan Cordoba, 4 Javier Zanetti, 6 Lucio, 13 Maicon, 23 Andrea Ranocchia, 26 Cristian Chivu, 37 Davide Faraoni, 55 Yuto Nagatomo.
Midfielders: 10 Wesley Sneijder, 17 Angelo Palombo, 18 Andrea Poli, 19 Esteban Cambiasso, 20 Joel Obi.
Attackers: 7 Giampaolo Pazzini, 9 Diego Forlan, 28 Mauro Zarate, 30 Luc Castaignos.
