Line-ups: Inter-Marseille

Inter have Wesley Sneijder, Diego Milito and Diego Forlan for the crucial second leg as they try to overturn a 1-0 defeat to Olympique Marseille.

The Nerazzurri lost the first leg 1-0 with the final touch of the game in France, but hope to build on Friday’s 2-0 win over Chievo – ending a run of two points from nine official outings.

Cristian Chivu is suspended, joining the injured Ricky Alvarez in the stands. Andrea Ranocchia makes a surprise recovery for a spot on the bench.

Sneijder starts behind strikers Forlan and Milito, while Andrea Poli and Dejan Stankovic get the midfield nod ahead of Esteban Cambiasso.

If Inter have turned a corner, then Marseille are still spiralling with four consecutive Ligue 1 defeats in which they failed to score a single goal.

Coach Didier Deschamps welcomed back Stephane Mbia, Loic Remy and Mathieu Valbuena from injury at the weekend and they all start at San Siro, though Andre-Pierre Gignac is out with a thigh problem.
