“We are up against an Inter side that had 10 days to prepare for this match, so it’ll be even tougher than if they’d come from a midweek game,” said the coach in his press conference.

“We have no alternatives, we need the perfect performance. Obviously, there is a different level of quality, but we’ll try to play our game and avoid cheap errors. I think we are facing perhaps the most complete squad in Serie A.

“When you study Inter carefully, you realise they are even stronger than they seem to be on TV. I will use my best available formation and hope for something off the bench too, but we do have a few doubts.”

Luca Cigarini and Ahmad Benali are the only absentees for the Squali at San Siro.

Crotone squad for Inter:Cordaz, Festa, Crespi; Cuomo, Golemic, Magallan, Luperto, Djidji, Pedro Pereira, Rispoli, Marrone; Crociata, Molina, Rojas, Zanellato, Petriccione, Reca, Vulic; Dragus, Simy, Siligardi, Messias, Eduardo, Riviere
