Inter needs to beat Bayern to win group

Inter needs to beat Bayern to win group

Inter Milan could break a 97-year-old club record when it plays Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Inter beat Siena 2-0 in the Serie A on Saturday to extend its overall winning streak to 11 games for the first time since the 1909-10 season.
It lost 2-0 to Bayern at home in the second rotation of the Champions League _ and hasn't lost since.
While Inter is on a roll after losing its first two Champions League games, Bayern has drawn its last two after winning its first three.
Inter has to win to finish first in Group B, while Bayern only needs a draw. Both teams have already advanced, with Bayern on 11 points and Inter on nine.
"I definitely want to win the group because we will then have home advantage (in the second leg) in the next round," Inter coach Roberto Mancini said.
Striker Hernan Crespo said his team wants to avenge the loss to the Bundesliga champions at home.
"We are coming to win," he said.
Bayern, which has three wins, three draws and three losses at home against Italian teams, drew 1-1 against lowly Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday after missing many scoring chances. Bayern is fourth in the Bundesliga, three points behind leader Werder Bremen.
Inter has won seven straight games in Serie A, two in the Champions League and two in the Italian Cup. The Milan club has a seven-point lead over second-place AS Roma in the Italian league.
Inter has three draws and a win from its last four visits to Germany. It has only lost twice in 12 away games.
Bayern has no major injury worries apart from long-term absentees Owen Hargreaves and Valerien Ismael, while Inter will be without Brazil striker Adriano and defender Ivan Cordoba.
