Inter Milan to miss Diego Milito in the crucial clash against Bayern Munich
Reigning Italian and European champions Inter Milan will reportedly be without the services of their star striker ahead of their crucial 2nd leg of the round of 16 fixture of the UEFA Champions League against Bundesliga giants Bayern
Munich on Thursday.
The international sustained a thigh injury at the start of February 2011 and since then the 31-year-old has been struggling to recover from it. It was expected that Milito will make his return last Friday in the Serie A clash against Brescia away
from home but it seems clear that the South American will not be able to regain fitness in time. Milan are desperate to see Milito fit enough to start the important match against Bayern Munich from the bench but it seems highly unlikely that the striker will be able to make it to the side as his thigh injury has already kept him out for over four
Inter Milan face Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Thursday and are chasing the tie after they lost 1-0 at home courtesy a late goal from Mario Gomez. With Diego Milito almost certainly out of contention, it seems that manager Leonardo will have to use
either Samuel Eto’o as a lone striker or may be forced to pair the as the Nerazzurri aim to overturn the one goal deficit from the 1st leg.
To win the tie, Inter Milan will have to win by a margin of at least 2 goals and a 1-1 draw will not suffice.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich manager Louis van Gaal has said that even after being notified that he will be leaving the club after summer, he will do his best to take the club through to the next round of the competition.
The Dutchman and the Munich directors decided to part company after the end of the current 2010-11 season due to Bayern’s recent run of poor results. However, van Gaal is confident that his side will go through the next phase of the competition.
“It’s not important what’s going to happen in the future, what’s important is that my team goes further in the competition because the players want this more than anything right now,” said the Dutchman while talking to the media.
