Later tonight, Inter Milan is going to face German side Werder Bremen in a Group B match of UEFA Champions League 2008-09. At this moment, in group B, Inter Milan is leading the table with one win. Inter Milan defeated Panathinaikos in the first match. On the other hand, Werder Bremen only got only one point as they drew their opening match. It is very early still in Champions league as you can see that only one match has been played for each team in group B.
However, this match and every match of Inter Milan in Europe will be important for their coach Mourinho. Untill now, Inter Milan is often criticized and ridiculed that they are a big giant in Italian football, but they are very weak in Europe. This is at to some point true. In fact, Inter Milan has not won the trophy of Champions league since 1965. So, it is more than 42 years that Inter Milan is without a trophy in Europe. So, this is a top priority for coach Mourinho. The fans do not care if Inter Milan play badly in Italy, but they want their club to do very well in Europe and get a reputation and prestige in European level.
Of course, it will be very difficult for Inter to win the match convincingly tonight. You have to remember that Werder Bremen is not a team to neglect. In fact, in the last two matches in German Bundesliga, Werder Bremen has scored 10 goals. It shows that it has a very strong team who are capable of picking up big margin victory. However, I am not so sure if Werder Bremen can do something outstanding at Italy tonight. Let us see what happens in tonight’s match.
