Inter Milan Vs. Schalke: Diego Milito To Start For Inter In Tuesday's Champions League Tie

Diego Milito, who scored both goals in the 2-0 win over Bayern Munich last season, is set to return to the Inter Milan lineup tonight to face Schalke in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Milito has spent much of the Serie A season on the bench, a reoccurring injury limiting him to just 13 starts. The nerazzurri have managed to score freely without him in the league, in part thanks to Samuel Eto'o, Giampaolo Pazzini, and Wesley Sneijder. But with Pazzini cup-tied, and Goren Pandev having a shocker of a match against AC Milan last weekend, Inter will be thrilled to welcome back Milito, who has scored six times in his twelve Champions League starts for the club.

Milito came on as a substitute in the 3-0 defeat to Milan, and it wasn't certain whether he'd be fit enough to start against Schalke. But it appears that Inter are hitting the ground running, determined to claim the trophy once again, and to do that they want all their best attacking options available.
