Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini admits Sampdoria have to drop points if his side is to qualify for next season's Champions League.
The Nerazzurri will play Genoa tonight before finishing the season at home against Empoli.
Sampdoria are away at Empoli this weekend and have an easy game to end the campaign when they host Parma at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
"There are two games left and it doesn't depend on us," Mancini said on a Europa League place for next season.
"If we win both but Sampdoria do the same, we will not qualify. So our job is to try and take all three points, hoping for the other teams to fail. But there's still hope, despite the undeserved defeat against Juventus.
"[The Genoa game] is our last opportunity but again, other results have to go in our favour. I'm hoping that in the future we will be playing for something more important than the Europa League.
"But it will not be easy, Genoa are in form and they play good football.
"Davide [Santon] did well in a number of games then he struggled to keep the same level of intensity. Maybe he will start tomorrow, he's not 100% fit but he is an important player for the future.
"[Nemanja] Vidic did not train as much as the others, he will be assessed tomorrow [on Saturday]."
