Genoa comes to the San Siro missing Domenico Criscito, Miguel Veloso, and Antonio Floro Flores due to suspension, with coach Davide Ballardini also observing from the stands. Inter are without Diego Milito, Esteban Cambiasso, Walter Samuel, and Ivan Cordoba. Maicon's back from suspension, though, bolstering the already buoyant Nerazzurri.
The best money's on Inter in this one. They've sailed up to second in Serie A and must grab a win today to keep AC Milan's lead at the top to just five points. Genoa, meanwhile, are still smarting from last week's 2-1 loss to Catania.
