A big surprise in Claudio Ranieri's lineup today as Giampaolo Pazzini is ruled fit to start. The forward picked up an ankle injury in Tuesday's Champions League match against CSKA Moscow but has managed to recover in time to help lead the Inter Milan attack.
Unfortunately for Napoli, they can't say the same about Edinson Cavani, who also hurt his ankle in Champions League play. The partenopei ace will rest today as Aurelio De Laurentiis contemplates war against Spain. Also, happy birthday to Walter Mazzarri -- here's hoping you don't have a heart attack!
Inter Milan Starting XI: Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Walter Samuel, Cristian Chivu; Javier Zanetti, Estaban Cambiasso, Joel Obi; Ricardo Alvarez; Diego Forlan, Giampaolo Pazzini
Inter Bench: Luca Castellazzi, Yuto Nagatomo, Dejan Stankovic, Philippe Coutinho, Luc Castaignos, Sully Muntari, Mauro Zarate
