Inter heads into the encounter with the knowledge that only a win will suffice against Genoa, with league leader Juventus away at Cagliari on Friday night.
Head coach Andrea Stramaccioni will be without key midfield duo Esteban Cambiasso and Freddy Guarin, though, with the former injured and the latter suspended. The Nerazzurri boss is likely to revert back to a similar starting XI that succumbed to defeat against Lazio last week, following the 2-0 Coppa Italia win over Hellas Verona in midweek.
Genoa is suffering a contrasting change in fortunes to its Serie A counterpart and currently finds itself in 19th place, just two points above last-place Siena. Gli Salami head coach Luigi Delniri will be without pivotal pairing Felipe Seymour and Emiliano Moretti, with the two players ruled out through suspension.
Delniri is expected to name a similar line-up to the one that secured a point at home to fellow relegation rivals Torino, with Mario Sampirisi and Daniel Tozser tipped to replace the aforementioned duo.
