Roberto Mancini is to rest players ahead of Tuesday's Coppa Italia quarter final
Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini is set to rest several players ahead of Tuesday's Coppa Italia quarter final first leg against Lazio.
Mancini wants to keep his star players fresh in order to maintain their title challenge.
"It will be a weakened line-up, only one of Adriano or Cruz will start and the other will come off the bench, and we won't have Cambiasso who, due to family problems has gone back to Argentina," Mancini said.
Meanwhile, Mancini believes that the Nerazzurri can still catch Serie A leaders Juventus.
"I have not changed my mind, I believe it's possible to catch them, the way we are playing, and we should be able to recover a few points."
Internazionale are currently second in Serie A eight points behind the Bianconeri.
