Last chance for Inter

Lazio ended Inter Milan's title dream last season and could put the nail in the coffin of Hector Cuper's 'scudetto' ambitions again when the teams meet at the San Siro stadium on Sunday (20:30cet). All Serie A actions LIVE on eurosport.com from Saturday - 18:00cet!

Inter, without a domestic title since 1989, trail leaders and defending champions Juventus by six points.

As Marcello Lippi's side show few signs of conceding ground, any slip-up against Lazio would all but mathematically hand Juve, who face lowly Brescia on Sunday, their 27th title.

With just five games remaining, AC Milan, who take on Roma on Saturday, are nine points adrift of Juve and have no illusions of overtaking the Turin side.

Milan's aim is focused on the Champions League -- both the semi-final derby next month with Inter and ensuring automatic qualification for next term's campaign with a second place finish in Serie A.

Inter, beaten 4-2 by Lazio on the final day of the season to hand Juve the title last year, still have lingering hopes the champions can fail twice in the final five matches to give them a chance of ending their 14-year wait for the scudetto.

The mood has changed in the Inter camp after Tuesday's spirited 2-1 defeat at Valencia gave them a last-four place in Europe's premier club competition thanks to away goals qualification.

"That result gives us encouragement to fight all the way in the league and not to throw the towel in," said goalkeeper Francesco Toldo, Inter's midweek hero who pulled off a string of vital saves.

"We have shown we have great spirit and that we cannot be written off," added Toldo.

Inter striker Christian Vieri's season does look over, though. Serie A's leading scorer, with 24 goals, damaged knee ligaments at Valencia and is unlikely to feature again this season.

Cuper will turn to Argentine Hernan Crespo to lead the line against his former club with the unpredictable Alvaro Recoba likely to partner him in attack.

Inter are also robbed of the services of their key central midfielder Cristiano Zanetti, who has been suspended for two games after his dismissal in last week's win at Brescia.

Turkish international Emre is likely to line up alongside Luigi Di Biagio in the centre of midfield.

Fourth-placed Lazio have nothing but the league to focus on after Thursday's exit from the UEFA Cup at the hands of Porto and their failure to get past Roma in the semi-final of the Italian Cup.
suspended: C. Zanetti, Vieri, Pasquale (I), Mihajlovic (L)
important players injured: Cannavaro, Coco (I), Peruzzi, Stam (L)

ATALANTA (15) v TORINO (18) (Saturday 18:00)

The first game in charge for Atalanta coach Giancarlo Finardi, following the sacking of Giovanni Vavassori, is a 'must win' game for the Bergamo side against doomed Torino. Atalanta currently occupy the fourth relegation spot but with Reggina just a point ahead of them, facing Parma, they have a real chance to get out of the relegation zone with a win against the bottom side.
important players injured: Berretta (A), Ferrante, Mezzano, Sommese, Vergassola (T)

At midway stage in the season both these clubs held hopes of a Champions League spot but inconsistency from Chievo and a slump in form from Bologna have seen them drop out of the race, although Chievo could still make up the ground. Chievo welcome key midfielder Simone Perrotta back from suspension while Tomas Locatelli's recent return to fitness has boosted Bologna.
important players injured: Lupatelli (C)

COMO (17) v MODENA (12)

Como's relegation fight has hardly been helped by the announcement of their owner and president Enrico Preziosi that he will take over Genoa next season leaving the future of the Lakesiders in real doubt. Modena were excellent in their 3-2 win over Bologna last week and a win will go a long way to securing Serie A football again next season for the Canaries.
suspended: Carbone (C), Campedelli (M)
important players injured: Padalino, Tarantino (C)


Last week's win for Empoli at AC Milan was highly unexpected given their poor away record but while their home form is better they are still not yet clear of relegation danger. Udinese fancy their changes of UEFA Cup football next season but will be without suspended Czech midfielder Marek Jankulovski.
suspended: Berti, Pratali (E), Jankulovski (U)
important players injured: Manfredini, Sensini, Muzzi (U)


On paper this should be three points and another step closer to the title for Juventus but up against Roberto Baggio and a Brescia side who were unbeaten in 16 games prior to last week's last minute defeat to Inter, Marcello Lippi's men will need to work for the three points. After a gruelling extra-time victory over Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday, Lippi is likely to rotate his squad particularly in defence and midfield.
suspended: Camoranesi (J), Bilica, Seric (B)
important players injured: Salas, Trezeguet (J)


A 3-1 win at Torino last week gives Piacenza a glimmer of hope in their relegation fight and Perugia's poor away form will give them confidence for this encounter.
important players injured: Lamacchi, Boselli, Tosto (PC), Tedesco (PG)

REGGINA (14) v PARMA (5)

Reggina striker Emiliano Bonazzoli finds himself in the strange position of playing against the club he is currently contracted to, having been loaned out by Parma to help the southerners' survival bid. Bonazzoli's goals have brought some precious points but Parma are aiming for Champions League football next season and their own strikers, Adriano and Adrian Mutu will cause plenty of problems for the Reggina defence.
important players injured: Lamouchi (P)

AS ROMA (8) v AC MILAN (3) (20:30)

These two teams will be familiar foes by the end of the season as they are set to face each other in the two-legged final of the Italian Cup. Milan are expected to keep the same side that beat Ajax 3-2 in the Champions League on Wednesday while Roma are without injured wing-backs Cafu and Vincent Candela.
important players injured: Candela, Cafu (R), Seedorf, Pirlo, Gattuso, Serginho (M
As Barcelona's season lurches from one disappointment to another the Catalan side will attempt to revive their domestic fortunes when they entertain high-flying Real Sociedad on Sunday at the Nou Camp

The club's dreams of brightening up an otherwise gloomy season with European success were finally punctured by defeat against a streetwise Juventus on Tuesday and they now face an uphill battle to salvage something from what has been a wretched domestic campaign.

Radomir Antic's side are mired in 12th place in the table, five points adrift of a European place and only seven above the congested relegation zone.

To make matters worse, this weekend's opponents Sociedad have been in devastating form in recent matches.

The Basques followed a sparkling 4-2 victory over Real Madrid with a ruthless 5-0 destruction of basement side Rayo Vallecano and are now just a point behind the European champions at the top of the table.

Their strike partnership, Serbian target man Darko Kovacevic and the electric Turkish forward Nihat Kahveci, has been terrorising opposition defences and Barca will have to be at their very best if they are to call a halt to their goalscoring.

Barca have a number of injury worries with inspirational midfielder Luis Enrique and Dutch right back Michael Reiziger both struggling with knee problems, while defender Carles Puyol (leg strain) and playmaker Xavi (shoulder) are also doubtful starters.


Athletic threw away a three-goal halftime lead to end up drawing 3-3 against Espanyol last week and will need to be more disciplined if they are to renew their bid for a place in next season's UEFA Cup. Betis have only won one of their last eight matches, but have at least recovered the services of former Barcelona striker Alfonso, who scored within a minute of coming on as a substitute in last week's 2-2 draw against Atletico Madrid.

ATLETICO MADRID (9) v OSASUNA (17) (21:00)

Atletico will be praying they can get their centenary celebrations off to a winning start by claiming their first victory in six outings against struggling Osasuna at what is guaranteed to be a full house at the Calderon. With leading striker Fernando Torres out injured, Luis Garcia, whose fine recent form has been rewarded with an international call-up for Spain's friendly against Ecuador next week, is likely to be joined by the inconsistent Javi Moreno up front.



With the arrival of on-loan striker Mido from Ajax, Celta finally look to have found a goalscorer capable of firing them into the Champions League. The young Egyptian scored two classy goals in last week's 2-0 win over Osasuna and looks to have struck up an immediate understanding with playmaker Alexander Mostovoi. The Galicians will, however, need to be on their guard against Valladolid who ground out a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Valencia last week.


Three 1-0 wins on the trot have seen Malaga renew their bid for a place in next season's UEFA Cup, but they will not have it all their own way against Racing who have put together a three-match unbeaten run to pull clear of the danger zone.


Rayo's new coach Antonio Iriondo could hardly have got off to a worse start with last week's 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Real Sociedad. Nothing less than a win against Espanyol will do if they are to retain any hope of avoiding the drop. Espanyol staged a miraculous recovery to come from three goals down to claim a 3-3 draw at home to Bilbao last week and extend their unbeaten run to seven matches, but they have received a major blow with the news that leading scorer Raul Tamudo will miss the next six games with a thigh injury.


Three wins in a row have helped Depor move to within a point of Real at the top of the standings and with leading scorer Roy Makaay in deadly form they will be optimistic of extending their run against the islanders. The Dutch striker brought his tally for the season to 24 after notching a neat double in last week's 3-1 win over Sevilla.


Recreativo's seven-match unbeaten run was ended by an unlucky 1-0 defeat at Racing Santander last week and the Andalucians will need to have more fortune in front of goal if they are to continue their revival with a win against a gritty Villarreal.

SEVILLA (6) v REAL MADRID (1) (19:00)

Real remain top despite dropping five points in their last two league games and now face a potentially tricky match against the Andalucians who have moved the match to the city's Estado Olimpico to cater for the expected demand in tickets. Real will be without Raul, who is recovering from surgery to remove his appendix, and defender Michel Salgado, who is suspended after his dismissal in last week's 1-1 draw with Barca. But Vicente del Bosque will have few worries with the versatile Guti stepping in to renew his partnership with Ronaldo in attack.


Following their disappointing exit from the Champions League at the hands of former coach Hector Cuper's Inter Milan, Valencia will now have to concentrate on renewing their bid to make next season's competition. Rafa Benitez's side dropped to fifth place after a 1-0 defeat at Valladolid last time out, but will be favourites to take their second win in eight games against a weak-looking Alaves, who have taken just two points from a possible 24.
Bayern playing for title

Bayern Munich could secure an 18th German title with victory at VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday (15:30cet), but their rivals will try to make sure they have to wait a bit longer.

To be crowned champions this weekend, the Bundesliga leaders need a little help from VfB Stuttgart and Borussia Dortmund, currently second and third respectively.

Bayern have to take three points and hope neither Stuttgart, who are at home to Hansa Rostock, nor defending champions Dortmund, who visit TSV 1860 Munich, can do no better than draw their matches.

The Bavarians, 11 points clear at the top, need just four points from their remaining five matches to win the title whatever the others achieve on Saturday.

After losing their last two league games, Bayern will be boosted by the return of Michael Ballack at Wolfsburg.

The Germany playmaker, who has been sidelined for seven weeks with an ankle injury, is probably not fit enough for 90 minutes yet but coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said he would play some part in the match.
- In all three defeats this season Bayern played without Scholl and Ballack
- Ballack is not yet fit, but he will play again.
- Nico Kovac, responsible for last weeks penalty against Dortmund, is suspended for Bayern.


Hamburg SV are chasing a place in the UEFA Cup, while Nuremberg are fighting against relegation. Hamburg are unbeaten at home since the winter break with five wins and a draw. Nuremberg, who have gone 272 minutes without scoring, have plenty of injury worries and will be without midfielder David Jarolim through suspension.
Most important Nuernberg-Player Jarolim (Playmaker) is suspended
- Hamburg is probably going to start very offensive with Takahara, Romeo, Mahdavikia and Barbarez attacking, Cardoso behind them.
- Nuernberg need every single point they can get - too bad they play at Hamburg in this situation, Hamburg HAS to win to reach UEFA or CL


Hertha Berlin, on course for a place in Europe, welcome back striker Michael Preetz from injury. Hanover 96, who are nearly safe from the drop, have never beaten Hertha in Berlin.

- Dardai for Berlin and Van Hintum for 96 are suspended
- Rehmer is injured for Berlin, Preetz comes back into the team, Alves or Luizao go to the bench then
- Berlin at 4t position, have to win, otherwise Schalke and Hamburg pass


Midfielder and captain Zvonimir Soldo is suspended for Champions League-chasing VfB Stuttgart, who will be eager to delay Bayern's title celebrations. Hansa Rostock, who need points to avoid relegation, have lost their last four away games.
- Teamcaptain Soldo is suspended for Stuttgart! Rostock misses "only" playmaker Meggle and swedish forward Prica.
- Stuttgart has to win to hold the second position, Rostock needs the points to avoid Relegation.

SCHALKE 04 (5) v VFL BOCHUM (13)

Schalke 04, who hope to make the UEFA Cup, have a midfield problem with Sven Kmetsch and Denmark's Christian Poulsen both injured. Bochum, who are not safe yet, have lost and failed to score in their last three matches on the road.
- Kmetsch and Poulsen are out for Schalke, both defensive midfielders - no prob for Schalke, they will just attack
- No players out for Bochum
- Still Bochum is in danger of relegation, Schalke chases a CL-Position


Whoever loses this match will be bound for the second division, while a draw would also be bad news for both sides. Germany midfielder Bernd Schneider is one of several players out injured for troubled Leverkusen, who have collapsed after narrowly missing out on three titles last season.
- Schneider is injured, which is a desaster for Bayer. But Lucio improves more and more!
- It is important for Gladbach to win minimum a point against Bayer - would be better to win 3...They are 3 points ahead at the moment at 15th position.


TSV 1860 look set for yet another mid-table finish while champions Dortmund are still in contention for second place and direct access to the Champions League. Dortmund will be without several important players through injury, most notably first-choice goalkeeper Jens Lehmann and Germany defender Christoph Metzelder.
- No players are suspended
- Cerny, Wiesinger and Hässler back for Munich, Frings is back for Dortmund - Lehmann still injured (Goalkeeper), as well as Metzelder and Heinrich.
- Dortmund NEEDS to play in the championsleague next year, but BErlin, Schalke and Hamburg are chasing them at the moment

Sunday, April 27 (17:30)


Bielefeld have picked seven points from their last three home games and look set to survive in the top flight, but little Cottbus, in their third season in the top flight, look condemned to playing second division football next year.


Egypt defender Hany Ramzy and Brazilian midfielder Ratinho are both injured for Kaiserslautern, who were at the bottom of the table a few weeks ago but are nearly safe now. Germany defender Frank Baumann returns from injury for Werder Bremen, who stand an outside chance of playing in the UEFA Cup next year but might have to be content with a place in the Intertoto Cup.

Distance 296 kilometres.

Duisburg put in another disgraceful on-field display in losing 1:3 to Mainz last Monday. The match was all but over as a contest in the first half as the goals were scored before the break. Duisburg were so bad that they could have conceded a bucketful of goals had the home team not let up in their efforts to score.

Regular defender Drsek and regular forward Marius Ebbers will be absent from today’s match, and both will be out for a second successive match due to injury. Key midfielder Ralf Keidel collected his tenth yellow card while key midfielder Carsten Wolters received his fifth yellow card in the match. ??? ?????????? 5 ???????? ??????. Rouven Schröder will once again replace Drsek in the centre of defence, Dominik Jansen will come into attack to replace Marius Ebbers while Voss returns from suspension to fill the gap in midfield created by Keidel, and finally, Miriuta will come into the team at the expense of Wolters. Albanian international defender Ervin Fakaj has finally recovered from a long- term injury and is available for selection, however he is expected to initially sit on the bench.

Mannheim come off a tough battle against Karlsruhe last week, in a match of mediocre quality. In spite of fielding a decimated team without 6 regular players, Mannheim battled with teeth and nails during the match and weren’t afraid to play the game tough. They missed a great scoring chance in 22? when Kocak failed to score unmarked in front of an empty goal. Karlsruhe only needed two attacking opportunities in the second half despite an otherwise mediocre performance to give Mannheim their sixth consecutive defeat and condemn them to almost certain relegation.

Mannheim were informed last week by the relevant committee that provides licenses for the German Leagues, that they wont be granted permission to even play in the Regionalliga (3rd division), if they cant guarantee the financial amount necessary. This amount is not formally known, however is estimated to be in the order of 1 Million Euros. “ We must find investors, because we wont manage on our own” President Hans Regelein stated.

Regular midfielder Ratkowski returns to the starting line-up tonight after serving his one- match suspension, while reserve goalkeeper Rechner returns from injury. Long-term injured Licht, Mea Vitali, Bekir and Rus still remain out of the squad, while regular midfielder Christian Fickert (groin) and regular midfielder Stefan Zinnow (knee bruising) will miss their second consecutive match. Ratkowski returns to the starting XI at the expense of rotated midfielder Oliver Otto, who in any event is doubtful due to a knee injury.

MSV DUISBURG: Langerbein – Kienle, Schröder, Tweed, Bönig – Voss, Miriuta, Zeyer, Rasmussen – Gruev, Jansen.
MANNHEIM: Nulle – Ifejiagwa, Kowalik, Beisel – Fall, Hoersen, Kocak, Ratkowski, Everaldo – Kern, Plassnegger.

Distance 600 kilometres.

Frankfurt couldn’t even register a victory last week considering the way they played in the scoreless draw at home against Braunschweig. It was the fifth consecutive match in which Frankfurt performed badly, and literally went into hiding during the match. Frankfurt should remain pleased that they even managed to get a point from the match. At no point in the match could one distinguish between which team is vying for promotion and which one is battling against relegation.

Not only is the form of Frankfurt spiraling downwards lately, but they also lost two of their best players in that match. Regular forward was unfairly handed a harsh red card by referee Margenberg, while right midfield organizer, the quick Albert Streit, collected his fifth yellow card and receives a one-match suspension.

Regular forward Pawel Kryszalowicz returned to training last Monday, after recovering from an injury that had kept him out of action for the last two months, however he is still considered unfit. A decision will be made today whether he will sit on the bench or take his place in the starting line-up at the expense of Jones, and play for as long as his body allows him for.

An announcement was made yesterday in regard to the deal struck up with Trier regular midfielder Mehmet Dragusha. The Albanian is out of contract in the summer and will sign a three-year deal. Eintracht players will be wearing a black armband in memory of former player Fred Schaub, who tragically died in a car accident last Tuesday. Schaub was 42 years of age.

Union Berlin were completely erratic in the match last week when they suddenly remembered their usual habits. During the first half of the 3:2 home win over Aachen, they were all at sea and nowhere to be seen in the match. They conceded two goals and it seemed likely that the 3:1 win against Lübeck on 1 December, would remain as the last home win for at least another two weeks. They came out after break completely transformed. They managed to reverse the 0:2 lead by scoring three goals within 6 minutes, while the fans in the stadium had bags under their eyes waiting for a home goal to be scored. The last home goal scored by Berlin at the “Alte Försterei“ was in the 1:1 draw against Reutlingen on 3 March.

Nevertheless, the team were on fire in the second half and deservedly won the three points. Union Berlin remain undefeated in five matches without conceding a goal in four of those matches. In the last 10 matches they have lost once (0:3 against Köln) and remain undefeated in five away matches since 26 January, when they lost 0:1 to promotion hopefuls Mainz.

Apart from long-term injured Kozak, there are also some other norable absentees from tonight’s match. Team captain and regular defender Steffen Menze (flu), regular midfielder Kostadin Vidolov (hamstring), regular defender Tom Persich (bruised knee), regular goalkeeper Robert Wulnikowski (stomach virus) and regular attacking midfielder Florian Bruns (knee) will all miss tonight’s match.

All the above with the exception of Menze and Vidolov were in the starting line-up last week. The likely changes to the starting XI as a result of the above absences are the following. Former regular but recent reserve keeper Beuckert will be assigned between the posts, which will leave amateur team goalkeeper Jan Glinker on the bench. Balcarek is expected to replace Persich in defence, whose place in the midfield will be taken by Okeke, whil eregular forward Sreto Ristic will start instead of Bruns. Sreto Ristic had a huge impact on the game last week in overturning the lead held by Alemannia Aachen.

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT: Nikolov – Bindewald, Tsoumou-Madza, Keller, Wiedener – Schur, Skela, Montero, Bürger – Beierle, Kryszalowicz (Diakité).
UNION BERLIN: Beuckert – Balcarek, Molata, Ernemann, Nikol – Okeke, Wehlage, Veit, Koilov – Baumgart, Ristic
Distance 388 kilometres.

Greuther played a match of two halves in the 1:1 away draw against St. Pauli last week. In the first half they were the dominant team and played to a level reminiscent of recent weeks. They were steady in defence and controlled the tempo of the match, and after going ahead in 24? they missed various opportunities to further their lead. In the second half, Greuther dropped their work rate and couldn’t respond to a quick equalizer (54?). The final score was a just result as both teams dominated a “half” each, but it must be stated that it was the first time that Greuther gave rise to concern with their performance, after the exceptional displays during the last four rounds which they all won.

Greuther remain undefeated in 9 matches and come up against Freiburg tonight, to whom they have never lost at the “Playmobil Stadion” in six encounters.

Regular forward Sascha Rösler (13 goals) and recent regular midfielder Olivier Caillas have both served their one-match suspensions and return to the starting line-up. On a lesser note, regular defender Björn Schlicke and regular midfielder Christian Weber are excluded from the squad, after each collected 5 yellow cards. Long-term injured Xie Hui and Birk still remain on teh sidelines.

Freiburg had a lot of difficulty in accounting for Eintracht Trier 1:0 away last week. They had the better chances and control of the match, but only managed to score a goal with the final shot of the match (90?+1?). However, they deservedly won the game, despite encountering difficulty because of the “relaxed” manner in which their players approached the match. This was the second successive match after the 1:1 home draw against St. Pauli, in which the Freiburg players lacked concentration during the match and appeared to have their minds elsewhere.

Coach Finke welcomes the return of regular midfielder Levan Zkitischwili, who has served a one-match suspension. On the other hand, regular defender Diarra has collected his fifth yellow card and will miss the match, along with long-term injured Willi and Anicic. Diarra will be replaced in defence by one of Schumann and Kondé, while star player Levan Kobiaschwili is considered extremely doubtful to play. The international Georgian midfield organizer is suffering from the same injury that has kept him out of action for the last 2 matches.

GREUTHER FÜRTH: Neuhaus – Surmann, Westermann, Mamic, Hillebrand – Burkhardt, Ruman, Reichel, Caillas – Azzouzi, Rösler.

SC FREIBURG: Golz – Schumann (Kondé), Müller – Zeyer (Zkitischwili), Berner – Bajramovic, Hermel – Coulibaly, Guié-Mien – Iaschwili, Tanko.
GIF Sundsvall - Malmö FF 1
Sundsvall förlorade borta mot Helsingborg med 1-2 men var det spelförande laget och borde åtminstone fått med sig en poäng hem. Man har dominerat spelmässigt i alla tre matcher så här långt. Cain Dotson och Joel Cedergren är ännu inte kuranta och spelar inte, däremot är Daniel Näsholm tillbaka, han satt på bänken senast då han inte var helt återställd.

Malmö FF var det bättre laget i derbyt hemma mot Landskrona och borde vunnit matchen som slutade 2-2. Ändå kan man tacka domaren som bjöd på två mycket tveksamma straffar. Laget är helt klart hämmat av de skador man har. Till denna match saknar man långtidsskadade Peter Ijeh, Tomas Olsson och Jörgen Ohlsson. Hans Mattisson är åter i träning men hans medverkan i denna match taxeras i nuläget till fifty/fifty. Även Mattias Concha och Lollo Chanko är tveksamma till spel. Jon Jönsson är i alla fall tillbaka.

Sundsvall är mycket svårspelade och har lätt för Malmö, tre segrar på de fyra senaste inbördesmötena. Vi tror på hemmaseger då Malmö startat säsongen tveksamt.
Vi spelar i nuläget 3 % på Sundsvall till oddset 2.70. Skulle det visa sig att Mattisson och någon till inte kommer till spel kommer vi att plussa på med ytterligare några procent. Mer om det närmare matchstart. (Ananova, Betting Advice, BBC, Channel 4, Sky-Sport, Tipsnytt jne)
