INTERNAZIONALE could be without key defender Marco Materazzi for the crunch Champions League game against Newcastle United on Tuesday.

Materazzi limped out of Inter's game against Bologna after just five minutes - and early indications suggested the player would be out for a month.

Emre - another player substituted in the game - is expected to be fit for the clash, but coach Hector Cuper will have to wait for further tests on Materazzi.

The former Perugia man will undergo further tests on Sunday, but it appears that the player will be unavailable for the European clash.

Indeed, the Italian international only returned from injury around a week ago after suffering a similar strain earlier this year.
