Mourinho insists Serie A title is Inter's to lose

Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho believes the only way his team will not win a fourth straight Scudetto is if they ''give it away''.

Mourinho's team beat AC Milan 2-1 last weekend, a result which, coupled with second-place Juventus' 1-1 draw against Sampdoria, pushed the league-leading Nerazzurri nine points clear of Juve.

''If we lose the Scudetto it will be because we have given it away,'' said Mourinho. ''Our destiny is in our hands.

''It's difficult to imagine that Milan and Juventus will win all of their remaining games.

''There is still some way to go as there are 14 games left to play.

''But our win against Milan has been very important for us not only because it has increased the gap but because it is a psychological blow for our Scudetto opponents.''

Inter travel to Bologna on Saturday having to do without suspended duo Cristian Chivu and Nicolas Burdisso.

Claudio Ranieri's Juventus take on Palermo in Sicily desperate to return to the winning ways. The Turin giants have won only once in their last four encounters and will face a challenge as Saturday's opponents have tasted victory in all of their games at La Favorita since November 15.

Milan entertain in-form Cagliari looking to put a disappointing week behind them.

Last weekend's defeat at Inter dented the Rossoneri's title ambitions as it left them 11 points behind the Nerazurri while Carlo Ancelotti's men failed to bounce back in midweek, having to settle for a 1-1 draw at Werder Bremen in the UEFA Cup.
