It’s always great when I had to wake up at 6:00 am in the morning to watch us losing in such pathetic fashion. Our hundreds of crosses were helpless. Our shots were helpless. Milito was helpless (at least he’s good being offside). WE were helpless.

Referee: Davide Massa.
Prediction: Inter 2-1 Siena
It is a very likely that Javier Zanetti will be rested against Siena on Sunday. According to both the Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky, Andrea Stramaccioni could finally give the 39 year-old Argentinian a breather after many consecutive 90-minute games. In the defense we should see the return of Juan Jesus after the absence against Rubin Kazan on Thursday as well as Cristian Chivu who has been on the injury list for weeks. Another return that we should see is that of Wesley Sneijder. The Dutch midfielder was replaced by Stramaccioni with Cassano against Torino and was not used on the Europa League group stage match. In the midfield, it is expected that Guarin will return to the starting lineup with Cambiasso and Pereira.
