Inter name squad for Lille

Inter boss Claudio Ranieri has named a 20-man squad for the Champions League tie against Lille on Wednesday.

The tactician welcomes back numerous players to the party such as Andrea Ranocchia, Walter Samuel and Thiago Motta following fitness issues.

Douglas Maicon is missing though and goalkeeper Julio Cesar is still absent given the muscle strain he picked up at Atalanta on Wednesday.

Inter are top of Group B thanks to their six points. CSKA Moscow and Trabzonspor have collected four points, while Lille are on just two points.

Goalkeepers: 12 Luca Castellazzi, 21 Paolo Orlandoni, 72 Riccardo Melgrati.

Defenders: 6 Lucio, 23 Andrea Ranocchia, 25 Walter Samuel, 26 Cristian Chivu, 37 Davide Faraoni, 42 Jonathan.

Midfielders: 4 Javier Zanetti, 5 Dejan Stankovic, 8 Thiago Motta, 10 Wesley Sneijder, 11 Ricky Alvarez, 19 Esteban Cambiasso, 20 Joel Obi, 48 Lorenzo Crisetig.

Attackers: 7 Giampaolo Pazzini, 22 Diego Milito, 28 Mauro Zarate.
