Marseille Vs. Inter Milan, 2012 Champions League: Late Goal Sinks Inter

Marseille dealt yet another blow to Claudio Raineiri's Inter Milan, striking with an incredibly late goal to earn a 1-0 win at the Stade Velodrome. The hosts probably deserved their victory, but it was a dull match, featuring long spells of Marseille possession but little penetration as inter seemed happy to play for a 0-0 draw. The visitors came out of their shell only when they could poke the ball forward to Diego Forlan without committing too many bodies to the attack, and although they came close a couple of times they never looked as though they were going to break their long scoreless streak.

Ninety minutes in, it seemed as though Inter had got the draw they were playing for, despite continual pressure from Marseille. The visitors had defended well all evening, refusing to allow the Ligue Un team much of a sniff at Julio Cesar's goal, but in the 92nd minute Andre Ayew forced the veteran keeper into a good save then nodded the resultant corner into the back of the net. It was virtually the last kick of the game, and it condemned Inter to yet another loss. Marseille know that they can advance now - an away goal at the San Siro will see them in very good stead to get to the quarterfinals.
