Match Preview

Werder Bremen coach Thomas Schaaf will be forced to assemble a makeshift team for the Champions League tie at Inter Milan due to injuries to three key players.

Claudio Pizarro, Clemens Fritz and Torsten Frings have all been ruled out of the match at the San Siro and Schaaf admits the already difficult task of beating the cup holders has been made even harder.

"These injuries hit us hard," he said on the eve of the game.

"In view of our upcoming challenges, these losses mean a drop in quality for the team."

The trio are not only doubtful for Wednesday night, but also the Bundesliga clash with Bayer Leverkusen at the weekend.

"We hope that all three get back as soon as possible, but there is the risk that they will miss the next two games," added Schaaf.

Their loss is just the latest setback in what has been a difficult start to the season for the northern Germany side.

Sunday's derby triumph over Hamburg was only their second win of the season while they drew their Champions League opener against Tottenham. But the trip to Milan is arguably the toughest in their group.

"Inter are the clear favourites and it is impressive what this team is capable of," he said.

Schaaf can however welcome Petri Pasanen back into his defence after he missed the derby with Hamburg due to injury.

Inter boss Rafael Benitez is wary of Werder despite their mixed form. He said: "Werder Bremen are a team with a strong mentality and experience, it will certainly be a difficult game.

"I don't know the Werder Bremen coach personally but I do know that he has experience and quality.

"Every team in the group drew their first match, so everyone wants to win now. There's more pressure than before. However, we have the belief that we can win."

Benitez has question marks over forwards Diego Milito - the scorer of both goals in last season's final win over Bayern Munich - and Goran Pandev.

"We will see tomorrow when we do another training session," said Benitez when asked whether the pair would be fit.

Returning to the squad for the clash is Brazilian midfielder Mancini.

"He's an experienced player, it's important for him and us that he has a chance to play," said former Liverpool boss Benitez.

Match Report

Holders on fire Samuel Eto'o put Werder Bremen to the sword as Inter Milan delivered a lesson in clinical finishing at the San Siro as they ran out 4-0 winners. The Cameroon striker scored a hat-trick and the influential Wesley Sneijder was also on target as the Champions League holders showed they are still a force to be reckoned with despite the departure of Jose Mourinho. The hard work was done in the first 34 minutes, by which time the hosts were three up, Eto'o rounding off the win by completing his treble late on. Victory lifted Rafael Benitez's men level on four points with Tottenham at the top of Group A. Bremen were without three of their most experienced players - Claudio Pizarro, Clemens Fritz and Torsten Frings - through injury and their absences were keenly felt. They threatened first with Hugo Almeida's shot from long range after four minutes which was parried by Julio Cesar, but that was as good as it got for the visitors in the first half. Philippe Coutinho headed wide and Sneijder saw an effort blocked by goalkeeper Tim Wiese before Eto'o made the breakthrough in the 21st minute. The Cameroon striker got goalside of defender Per Mertesacker from Esteban Cambiasso's pass and advanced into the area before squeezing a shot between Wiese's legs. Eto'o struck again six minutes later, this time expertly bringing down a pass from Maicon before side-footing his right-footed finish inside the exposed Wiese's near post. Bremen had no answer to Inter's attacking power and Wiese had to be alert to tip over a shot from Dejan Stankovic before Sneijder made it three in the 34th minute, following more fine work from Eto'o. The striker's fine through ball picked out Sneijder's angled run and the Dutchman lifted a cool finish over Wiese. Inter were forced to make a change in goal at the break, Luca Castellazzi replacing the injured Julio Cesar. And the new keeper was tested early as he parried an effort from Wesley. His opposite number then denied Coutinho before Inter lost Lucio to what appeared to be a knee injury just after the hour mark. But Sneijder and Eto'o combined to deadly effect again in the 81st minute. The Holland international's slide-rule pass from the left wing picked out the run of his team-mate and, as Wiese rashly hared off his line to the edge of the area, Eto'o calmly took the ball round him and put it into the empty net. Bremen came close to a consolation late on but Castellazzi did well to keep out Marko Arnautovic's shot.
