Coppa Italia: Inter chief hoping for a miracle

MILAN, May 16 (Coppa Italia) - Internazionale president Massimo Moratti admits his team have a mountain to climb in the second leg of their Coppa Italia final against Roma on Thursday.

The Giallorossi thumped the reigning two-time Serie A champions 6-2 in the first leg at the Olympic Stadium last Wednesday, a result that leaves Inter's hopes of bagging a league and cup double in tatters.

And Moratti, who turned 62 on Wednesday, believes it will take a monumental effort from Roberto Mancini's men to turn the tie around.

He said: 'A feat is needed. Lots of concentration and effort is necessary. I think the team wants to do well. We will see.

'We have to believe. We have seen everything in football.

'Our players have to face this match with concentration that won't be easy to find, particularly after a championship like this, but it is necessary.'

Luciano Spalletti's Roma took the first leg by the scruff of the neck last week, and went ahead within a minute when captain Francesco Totti fired home.

Goals by Daniele De Rossi, Alessandro Mancini, Simone Perrotta and Christian Panucci (two) completed the rout, while a Hernan Crespo double handed Inter a faint glimmer of hope heading into the return leg.

And as long as hope remains for the Nerazzurri, Spalletti is calling for his side to do all they can to maintain their focus.

'The beginning of the match is always fundamental as it can dictate the direction of the game,' he admitted on www.asromacalcio.it.

'Therefore, we must pay attention to how the match is developing.

'They [Inter] have nothing to lose and this will give them a psychological advantage.'

Although their grip on second place in the Serie A standings is secure, Roma will be eager to bounce back from a surprise 1-0 league defeat at home to Torino at the weekend.

But Spalletti is sweating on the availability of injured duo Marco Cassetti and Gilberto Martinez, while David Pizarro faces a late fitness test.

Inter trio Walter Samuel, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Julio Cruz missed last weekend's thrilling 4-3 league win against Lazio through injury, and all remain fitness doubts ahead of Thursday's return leg.
