Inter go into the game fifth in the table, nine points and five places above their city rivals, and this is the nominal ‘home’ game for the Nerazzuri in their shared stadium.
There will be plenty of players facing their former clubs, with Milan’s Mario Balotelli and Sulley Muntari scoring late equalisers in the last two matches, 2-2 draws against Livorno and Roma respectively.
For Walter Mazzari’s Inter, all eyes will be on Fredy Guarín, the Colombian midfielder linked heavily with a move to Chelsea, while both teams will have key players suspended – Argentinean forward Ricky Alvarez for the hosts and captain Riccardo Montolivo for the Rossoneri.
This fixture has proved heated in the past, with two players sent off when the two teams met in April 2011, however Inter’s Japanese defender Yuto Nagatomo – who scored in the midweek defeat to Napoli – the only man to see red in the last five meetings.
