  • Live Commentary

    Time:90'
    • Internazionale
    • Olympique Marseille
    • 90+4' GOAL! Pazzini scores for Inter. A 2-1 win for Inter, but the whistle sounds. Inter are out. Marseille through to the last eight with a 2-2 victory on away goals.
    • 90+3' Inter may not have time to get a third goal as Bracigliano takes over from Ayew.
    • 90+3' A red card. Mandanda is off the park for clipping the feet of Pazzini. A penalty to Inter deep into stoppage time.
    • 90+2' Awful defending by Lucio and Samuel......
    • 90+1' GOAL! Brandao scores for Marseille. That is that. All over. A long ball by Mandanda and Brandao takes advantage of awful defending to score. 1-1 now. 2-1 to Marseille on aggregate.
    • 89' Three minutes of time added to this match.
    • 88' Stankovic is booked for a late challenge on Cheyrou as we head for the 90th minute.
    • 87' Marseille move up the park. Whistles sound around the San Siro.
    • 86' Brandao is wheeled on to take over from Remy for the French team.
    • 85' Maicon lifts the free-kick high and not so handsome over the bar. Chance gone. Looks like we are heading for extra-time here.
    • 84' Diarra clips Maicon late. Free-kick chance for Inter 25 yards from goal.
    • 83' Lucio's cross bounces in the box, but Cambiasso can't head at goal with the ball bouncing up high over his head in the area.
    • 82' Diawara brings down Pazzini before Maicon's free-kick is nudged over the bar by Mandanda.
    • 81' Marseille a lowly eighth in Ligue 1 after a 1-0 loss to Ajaccio last Friday. Their season will be well and truly in a mess if they tumble out here.
    • 80' Stankovic hammers a shot at goal. Straight down the throat of Mandanda, who has done little in this second period apart from pick the ball out of the net.
    • 79' Pazzini tries to take the fight towards Marseille, but his control lets him down before he runs out of steam.
    • 78' Inter coach Ranieri looking a bit more relaxed now. And little wonder. His side finally score in a match they must win by two clear goals to be sure of going through.
    • 77' A real sense of relief around the ground. Will Inter push for the winner with three of their changes already made? Lucio takes no chance as he clears the danger from inside his box.
    • 76' Azpilicueta smacks a shot at goal from distance, but easy enough stop for Cesar who gathers the ball.
    • 75' All change now in this contest. We are heading towards extra-time unless one of these sides comes up with a goal.
    • 74' GOAL! Milito scores for Inter! A frantic scramble in the box with Pazzini having a go before Milito followed up to convert. Poor delivery from Cambiasso, but Marseille failed to clear and pay the price.
    • 73' Stankovic looking for Maicon on the run, but another pass fails to find its intended target.
    • 72' Poli departs for Inter to be replaced by Cambiasso.
    • 71' Obi takes out Valbuena with a late challenge. Inter not really building up any period of sustained pressure.
    • 70' That would have killed off Inter. A goal now for Marseille will end this tie as a contest. Inter pick up again through Lucio.
    • 69' Valbuena with the delivery. Diarra with the header, but Cesar scrambles down to his left to keep out that effort. Almost the opening goal for Marseiile.
    • 68' Marseille so close to what would be a famous win for their side. Stankovic brings down Ayew.
    • 67' A few nervy expressions in the Inter crowd. There side has created very little since the first period.
    • 66' Mandanda is going to be booked for a spot of time-wasting in the Marseille goal.
    • 65' Stankovic opts for placement rather than power as the ball flies over the bar. Goalkick to the visiting side.
    • 64' Diawara is going to be booked for a late challenge on Poli. Free-kick chance 25 yards from the visiting goal.
    • 63' Stankovic thumps the ball down the park from the back. Maicon tries to join the party. Marseille with plenty of bodies back.
    • 62' Maicon lifts the ball high into area. Not the best of corners it must be said. Marseille again survive.
    • 61' Didier Deschamps hollering from the sidelines. Desperate to hold on to this 0-0 scoreline. Pazzini crowded out before Obi earns his side another corner.
    • 60' Maicon floats in the corner, but the danger is again dealt with by this Marseille rearguard. All a bit predictable from Inter it must be said.
    • 59' Obi making a nice dash up the line from Pazzini's pass before Inter win a corner.
    • 58' Forlan dashes off the park and straight down the tunnel. He has had better nights it must be said.
    • 57' Forlan departs to be replaced by Pazzini with Sneijder replaced by Obi.
    • 56' Poli ends up walloping a volley miles over the bar. A couple of changes coming for Inter.
    • 55' Stankovic, Maicon and Lucio exchanging passes in the home box. Inter break up the park as Forlan earns his side a throw-in.
    • 54' Mbia has a shot blocked by a home shirt. Marseille collect the loose ball seconds later.
    • 53' Valbuena delivers the corner, but Lucio was on his guard to head clear. So far, so good for Marseille in this match.
    • 52' Sneijder sweeps the ball in, but Marseille deal with the danger before breaking towards the Italian goal. Marseille keeping the ball with some ease before earning a corner.
    • 51' Samuel has been booked for pushing in the Marseille area.
    • 50' Stankovic is guilty of bringing down Amalfitano before Inter scurry to the other end of the park.
    • 49' Stankovic brings down Ayew with a late challenge. Free-kick to the visiting side.
    • 48' Valbuena with the corner, but that is another fine piece of defending by Stankovic to clear the danger.
    • 47' Samuel nods a header behind the goal under pressure from Remy. Corner to the visiting side.
    • 46' We are off and running in this second period.
    • 45+2' Forlan nods wide of the goal from Maicon's cross. That will be that for the first period. We remain locked at 0-0 in this oe. Marseille will be the happier side at the moment.
    • 44' A couple of minutes to be added to the first period.
    • 43' Sneijder lifts the free-kick over the wall from distance, but lacked the power as Mandanda falls on it to claim the shot.
    • 42' A free-kick chance for the home team with Diarra taken out of the game late by Sneijder.
    • 41' Inter just failing to inject any real pace into their attacks as Maicon collects out wide.
    • 40' Stankovic deemed to have fouled Mbia. Sneijder looking a bit concerned as we head for the break in this contest.
    • 39' Stankovic wins the ball in the middle of the park. Some heavy challenges flying about in this match.
    • 38' Azpilicueta wins some space in the Inter box, but Lucio heads clear before Mbia brings down Sneijder seconds later.
    • 37' Game has calmed down somewhat since the opening ten minutes. Marseille now on the ball inside the Inter half.
    • 36' Mandanda collects in the Marseille goal before he launches the ball into the home half.
    • 35' Diawara reading the game well. Had to be alert to clear that cross by Forlan. Marseille seem to be winning the second balls as Morel hammers an effort a few yards wide from distance.
    • 34' Ranieri having a few strong words with Forlan. The Inter boss is certainly cutting an animated figure on the touchline.
    • 33' 50-50 in terms of possession so far. All very even with the best chances falling to Inter.
    • 32' Stankovic sends Forlan racing clear, but his cutback comes to nothing as Marseille deal with the danger. Milito left stranded at the back post.
    • 31' Poli guilty of taking out Diarra with a late challenge. Free-kick to the visiting side which comes to nothing seconds later.
    • 30' Sneijder's corner has plenty of air underneath it, but no real direction as the ball is walloped up the park by Marseille. We remain locked at 0-0.
    • 29' Nagatomo feeds Milito as Inter then choose to go backwards with the ball. Zanetti sees a cross blocked, and Inter have a corner. Patient play.
    • 28' Forlan continues to look like he in the wrong movie at Inter. Touch is poor. Looks like he is lacking confidence.
    • 27' Ayew has his pocket picked by Zanetti in the box. Appeals for a penalty, but nothing doing. Never a penalty.
    • 26' Lucio doing a spot of defending as he lumps the loose ball out of his area.
    • 25' Forlan tries to feed Maicon, but Marseille have two bodies across to block the cross before Stankovic's pass is cleared.
    • 24' Valbuena dinks the ball into the area, but Stankovic rises to nod clear. And on we go.
    • 23' Zanetti is the first man to be booked after taking out Mbia. Free-kick 35 yards out to the French side.
    • 22' Nagatomo wins the ball out wide, but can't keep it in play. Nagatomo not having the best of evenings so far.
    • 21' Zanetti still looking majestic for Inter at the age of 38. A real tempo to this match.
    • 20' Poli dinks the ball into the path of Nagatomo, who is guilty of fouling Azpilicueta as he ran for the ball. A fifth foul of the night from him.
    • 19' Lucio and Remy battle for the loose ball, but the decision goes to Marseille around the halfway line.
    • 18' Remy rises above Maicon to head wide from Marseille's latest cross. Azpilicueta making himself busy down the flank.
    • 17' Diarra nods wide from Valbuena's delivery. Inter can't believe they are not ahead in this contest. Marseille living on the edge, it must be said.
    • 16' Sneijder with the delivery and another cross, but cleared by the visiting defence. Nagatomo again guilty of fouling as he clatters Valbuena.
    • 15' N'Koulou fouls Milito with a late chop, and the home side have a free-kick out wide.
    • 14' Stankovic rises to power the header out of the danger area from Valbuena's delivery. Cesar collects the loose ball seconds later.
    • 13' Nagatomo deemed to be guilty of another foul on Amalfitano.
    • 12' Sneijder drills in the free-kick. Milito nods it on, but Forlan can't benefit at the back post as Marseille clear the danger.
    • 11' An electric atmosphere with Milito taken out of the game late by N'Koulou.
    • 10' Another golden chance for Inter as Mandanda foils Milto, who tries to chest in the cross by Sneijder. Again the keeper is equal to the task.
    • 9' Inter suddenly looking lively for the first time in these opening 10 minutes. A great run by Zanetti brings a corner for the Italian team.
    • 8' Glorious chance for Inter! Lovely run by Zanetti to supply Sneijder with the cutback. His shot is blocked by the visiting keeper Mandanda. Somehow it stays out.
    • 7' Marseille have never scored more than once in their 15 encounters against Italian opposition in Europe (excluding the Intertoto Cup).
    • 6' A frantic start to this encounter. Marseille would dearly love an opening goal. An away goal would force Inter to score three as Amalfitano is caught late by Samuel.
    • 5' Remy rises at the back post, but fails to direct the header on target as the ball falls wide of the goal from Valbuena's delivery. Goalkick to the home side.
    • 4' A nice piece of play out wide by Amalfitano, who is caught late by Nagatomo. Free-kick to the visiting side out wide.
    • 3' Marseille have recorded the worst shooting accuracy amongst teams who have qualified for the Last 16, hitting the target with just 37% of their attempts.
    • 2' Maicon catches Diawara with a late tackle before Valbuena sees a shot held by Cesar. Decent start by the visiting side.
    • 1' Inter get the match off and running.
    • 19.40 Teams on their way out for this match. A packed house inside the San Siro for this one. Should be a classic confrontation as Inter battle to land in the quarter-finals by overcoming a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.
    • 19.35 You can read the report from the first leg here when Andre Ayew's winner gave Marseille a 1-0 win over Internazionale in France. Marseille leave it late against Inter
    • 19.30 Inter have won four and lost seven of their last 12 Champions League matches.
    • 19.25 Odds for tonight's match: Internazionale evens, Marseille 13/4. Draw 11/4

    • 19.15 Marseille are the only team with a 100% record against Inter Milan in European competition (excluding qualifiers).
    • 19.10 Marseille have beaten Inter by the same scoreline of 1-0 in each of their three meetings (the previous two games in the 2003/04 UEFA Cup quarter-final).
    • 19.05 Marseille manager Didier Deschamps: “Inter have to win but we can also draw. We will look to resist them but also try to hurt them with our quality. We have got three important players back in Loïc Rémy, Stéphane Mbia and Mathieu Valbuena.”
    • 19.00 Inter manager Claudio Ranieri: “Marseille are a good team, strong and dangerous on the counterattack. We know their qualities and their weaknesses. They have earned more points away than at home in Champions League matches but compared to the first leg, the mood and atmosphere in our squad is very different. Friday's success against Chievo has encouraged and rejuvenated us. We want to keep our Champions League campaign going and we are determined to get through.”

    • 18.55 Several of Marseille’s key players are either carrying injuries or are just coming back to fitness for the game in Italy. Andre Ayew is nursing a long-term shoulder problem, but is expected to play, while Stephane Mbia, Mathieu Valbuena and Loic Remy all played against Ajaccio in Marseille’s last game for their first starts in weeks. Andre-Pierre Gignac missed the Ajaccio game with an adductor injury.
    • 18.50 Internazionale are without Cristian Chivu, who is serving a suspension, while Andrea Ranocchia (thigh) and Ricardo Alvarez (knee) have injuries and will not be able to play. Right-back Maicon is a doubt – having featured on Friday after a spell on the sidelines he missed training on Monday and will be assessed before the match.
