Match Preview

Moratti focused on Twente clash Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti only wants his players to focus on Champions League Group A match against FC Twente and forget the constant media speculation that coach Rafael Benitez may be dismissed if results do not improve. The Nerazzurri go into the encounter at the Giuseppe Meazza stadium in the midst of a dismal run of results. Last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Chievo followed a 1-0 loss against AC Milan in the city derby. Inter have dropped to sixth in Serie A. They are nine points behind leaders Milan after just one win in their past six league games. Walter Zenga and Leonardo are among those being linked in the press with Inter if Benitez goes. "I have read so many names to replace Benitez, each of them with interesting characteristics," said Moratti. "But we are not getting distracted by all this. "The team and the coach have to understand the importance of Wednesday's game. "Tired or not, the team will have to react and show a lot of determination because otherwise, we will not get anywhere." Victory over Twente would see holders Inter, who are level on seven points with group leaders Tottenham, progress to the next round with a game in hand. The Nerazzurri are two points clear of third-place Twente and end the group at Bremen on December 7. The Dutch outfit held Inter to a 2-2 draw back in their group opener and this time take on a side that has a lot of injured players. Inter will be without Diego Milito, Walter Samuel, Thiago Motta, Maicon, Julio Cesar, Cristian Chivu and Coutinho. To make matters worse, the Italians go into the encounter with the psychological blow of knowing that top scorer Samuel Eto'o will miss the next three Serie A games through suspension. Eto'o was punished for violent conduct after last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Chievo. "It is a difficult moment, but we must stay calm," said Inter captain Javier Zanetti. "On Wednesday we absolutely must win, carrying on with our heads held high, as always." The Dutch champions are second in their domestic league after 15 games. They lost 2-1 at home to AZ Alkmaar on Saturday.

Match Report

Inter secure qualification Inter Milan handed under-pressure boss Rafael Benitez some respite as they edged out FC Twente 1-0 to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League. Esteban Cambiasso scored the only goal of the game at the San Siro after 55 minutes to secure a victory which was deserved but far from simple for the Italian champions, who were without a win in five in all competitions and have slipped to sixth in Serie A. All that remains is to see whether Inter or Tottenham, also through, will top Group A. Inter had a great chance in just the third minute when Dejan Stankovic won the ball and found Jonathan Biabiany, who played the ball into the box, but Wesley Sneijder could not make good contact from close range and the ball went wide. Goran Pandev's strike was comfortably held by Nikolay Mihaylov a minute later, while at the other end Bryan Ruiz went close with a header. After 16 minutes, Inter were presented with a great opportunity when Peter Wisgerhof brought Sneijder down on the edge of the area after neat play with Pandev. The Dutchman took the free-kick himself and came agonisingly close, sending his shot against the bar. With Inter pressing, Mihaylov kept his side level by saving from Pandev, who was played in by Cambiasso, and Samuel Eto'o after good work by Biabiany. And Inter keeper Luca Castellazzi pulled off a great stop of his own on the half-hour mark, holding onto a powerful strike from Theo Janssen. Twente pressed with Nacer Chadli chipping wide and Castellazzi clearing up after a mistake by Lucio. In a frenetic end to the half, Lucio cleared an effort from Marc Janko before Thilo Leugers got his head in the way of Cambiasso's strike. As the second period got under way, Eto'o seemed determined to make up for his red card at the weekend - he shot from distance then had an effort saved by Mihaylov. But is was Cambiasso who broke the deadlock. When Janko fouled Sneijder, the Dutchman's free-kick bounced around in the area before reaching Cambiasso, who left Mihaylov with no chance. Javier Zanetti's solo run and strike brought a good save from the Bulgaria goalkeeper, then Sneijder sent an effort narrowly wide and Stankovic fired over as Inter sought a second. Twente still posed a threat, as they proved when Denny Landzaat's curling effort hit the bar with 15 minutes remaining. But the Dutch side could not find a leveller and Inter held on to book their place in the last 16.
