Mourinho fighting on three fronts


Internazionale have much to play for in the remainder of this season. Not only are they a point clear at the top of Serie A heading into the final six matches, they also advanced to the final four of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night while they hold a 1-0 lead after the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final against Fiorentina.

It is all shaping up nicely for Jose Mourinho's men who turn their focus back to domestic matters tomorrow with another meeting against Fiorentina, this time in the league.

"We have to concentrate on the league," said Inter goalkeeper Julio Cesar. "Because from now on, every game will be a final."

Roma and Milan are showing no signs of slowing down in their pursuit of the Nerazzurri. Roma host relegation-threatened Atalanta on the back of four straight wins and having extended their unbeaten run in the league to 22 games last weekend.

Milan, who trail three points behind Inter and are two adrift of Roma, will be hoping not to become Catania's next victims when the two sides meet at San Siro on Sunday. Catania would like nothing more than to claim another famous scalp having beaten Inter and Palermo in recent weeks.

Palermo need to claim all three points against Chievo if they are to hold on to fourth spot and the last Champions League qualifying spot.

Sampdoria, on the same points as Palermo face a mighty challenge as they look to end Genoa's recent dominance in the Lantern Derby.
