Jose Mourinho… is happy.

Also, Sampdoria hosts Udinese on Wednesday and Lazio hosts Torino on Thursday. The final Italian Cup quarterfinal match between Napoli and Juventus is scheduled for Feb. 14.

Inter and Roma have met in the last four Italian Cup finals, with both sides winning two each. However, Inter will play a Roma team in good form, having taken seven points from its three matches since the holiday break finished.

“Roma are a quality side,” Mourinho said. “When they were in difficulties in the championship and the Champions League, I was one of the few to say they could win something important even if it would be better later on. They have quality players and tomorrow night it will be a great match.”

Despite the tough game at San Siro, Mourinho downplayed the idea that he would change his usual preparations just because Inter was taking on a team in form.

“For me a match is always a match,” he said. “Who we are playing doesn’t interest me because I always respect and prepare my team with the same intensity, to win. Never in my career have I worked in a different manner depending on whether the opponent is more or less important.”

Mourinho also defended the physical condition of his players, and he denied that his team is unfit following the three-week break.

“If it is a physical problem it isn’t my responsibility,” Mourinho said. “My squad trains very well, following a scientific method. My team has to always be in top physical condition to be able to play three matches a week. At our level you must always be prepared.”
