Rafa aims to top the group

Inter boss Rafa Benitez insists his side won't be taking Werder Bremen lightly in this evening's Champions League clash.

The cup holders have already qualified for the next round of the competition, but want to win their group for the sake of their seeding in the last 16.

"We could finish first in the group and this would be better than being in second place, so we want to win and that's why we're here," Benitez said.

"It's good and important for the whole of Italian football that we stay as long as possible in the Champions League.

"I think we've done well so far. We cannot influence the match in Enschede between Twente and Tottenham, but we can play for a victory here.

"I don't know which players will start yet but those who play will want to win.

"How important is this game for us? I would say 10 out of 10 and that's the same for every player who will enter the pitch."
