Wednesday Clash to Determine Italian Title Race
Reuters, February 25th, 2008 3:30PM

MOST READ


Suddenly, we have a Serie A title race on our hands -- maybe. AS Roma cut Inter Milan's lead to nine points on Sunday, beating Fiorentina 1-0 as the Nerazzurri escaped with a 1-1 draw against Sampdoria. The two-point recovery could prove crucial if the Romans manage to come away with three points when they face the league leader on Wednesday.

Inter will be at home, but could be without talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who's been the club's driving force all season. Defender Ivan Cordoba is also out with a long-term injury, but striker Julio Cruz and midfielder Dejan Stankovic should be available.

"The San Siro game will determine everything," Roma coach Luciano Spalletti said. "It will be a fundamental match." Roma was pummeled 4-1 in the corresponding fixture at home last fall. In fact, the last time Inter lost in the Serie A was last April, when Roma pulled off a 3-1 victory at the San Siro. A repeat victory would certainly make the Serie A title race more interesting.
