Sports Mole looks ahead to Wednesday's Serie A encounter between Inter Milan and Sampdoria at the San Siro.

Amid strong speculation that David Moyes is a leading contender for his job, Walter Mazzarri saw his Inter Milan side record a much needed 1-0 victory over Cesena on Sunday evening.

Reports had suggested that a defeat at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi would have brought an end to Mazzarri's tenure, but a first win in three Serie A outings will have eased some of the pressure for the time being.

On Wednesday, the Nerazzurri will look to build upon that triumph with the visit of Sampdoria to the San Siro.

In contrast to their hosts, Samp have been in positive form so far this campaign, having remained unbeaten in their opening eight games.

In terms of team selection, former Manchester United player Nemanja Vidic was a substitute last time out and the Serbian could remain on the bench, with Andrea Ranocchia likely to be preferred as the central defender of a three-man unit.

As for the away side, it is expected that they will start with a 4-4-3 formation, with Stefano Okaka spearheading the attack.
