Inconsistent in the league and all but out of the Europa League, Inter go into Sunday's clash with Bologna desperate for three points.
But with confidence already low, the Nerazzurri remain hamstrung by an injury crisis that sees no less than seven first team players on the treatment table.
Walter Samuel, Diego Milito, Matias Silvestre, Gaby Mudingayi, Luca Castellazzi, Yuto Nagatomo and Joel Obi all miss out of the clash with Bologna, while first choice goalkeeper Samir Handanovic is suspended, meaning Juan Pablo Carrizzo will make his debut between the posts.
Bologna will be boosted after recording their first back-to-back victories of the season and by the return of centre-back Mikael Antonsson.
Cesare Natali is their only injury-induced absentee and Panagiotis Kone sits the game out through suspension.
