Bayern Munich Vs. Inter Milan, 2011 UEFA Champions League: Signs Of Life From Inter Fade Into Bayern Half-Chances

The second half has kicked-off at the Allianz Arena, and early Inter Milan is showing life. Thiago Motta, 20 seconds into the half, comes from his deep midfield position to take the ball off Franck Ribery, and while his foray into the final third is stood up by the back line, it's the type of aggression we saw from none of Motta, Esteban Cambiasso or Dejan Stankovic in the first half.

Soon Bayern is back on the ball, working it down their left flank. Danijel Pranjic is able to play a ball for Franck Ribery,  cutting in from the wing. From 25-yards out, Ribery is able to threat a ball through the channel to the right of Andrea Ranocchis, though the ball is a little too heavy for Mario Gómez to retrieve before Júlio César can swallow it up.

In the 48th minute, Bayern's going down their right, getting behind the Inter line before playing the ball back across the middle, and oncoming Bastian Schweinsteiger running into a 22-yard shot hit right at César.

Now in the 49th minute, Inter is still chasing two goals.
