Our last and more or less meaningless match in the Champions League. But the main reason I started it is because of our shortage of players. According to Channel 4 Mancini said he only had 13 players available for the match. I count 12 (outfield), but I guess Dejan will be ready then.
Ibra, Samuel and Nico are suspended. Adriano is away. Vieira, Figo, Dacourt, Rivas, Toldo and possibly Dejan are injuried. Cesar is not registered, neither is Pele nor Alfonso. That means we're without thirteen players.
This should make these players available:
G: Cesar, Orlandoni
D: Chivu, Cordoba, Materazzi, Maxwell, Maicon
M: Zanetti, Cambiasso, Jimenez, Solari, (Stankovic?)
A: Crespo, Cruz, Suazo
I expect Bolzoni and Dennis Esposito (and maybe Puccio) to be included. That leaves Tornaghi (gk), Federici (d), Perissinotto (d), Schiavini (m) and Slavkovski (a) in our B list.
I have to say that if we win this match, I'll be stunned. I'd still be stunned if we drew. What if some of our players get injuried tomorrow?
Any thoughts, interisti?
