Inter Milan coach Claudio Ranieri said his team's 1-0 loss at Marseille in the Champions League on Wednesday reflected his side's low confidence.A goal from Andre Ayew in the dying moments of the match gave Ranieri's side their fourth straight defeat and their sixth loss from their last seven matches.
Andre Ayew's late goal saw Marseille defeat Inter Milan 1-0 in the first leg of their round-of-16 Champions League tie on Wednesday.The Ghanaian's glancing header in stoppage time was enough to give the Ligue 1 outfit the advantage heading into the second leg, which will be held in Milan on March 13.
Inter coach Claudio Ranieri believes his side feel more comfortable in the Champions League than in Serie A.Ranieri's side are currently seventh in the Serie A standings following a three-game losing streak, while they will take on Marseille in the Champions League round of 16 after finishing at the top of their group.
Marseille's Andre Ayew said Wednesday's Champions League clash with Inter Milan will be a tough test for his side.Ayew has recently returned to the club from international duty with Ghana at the 2012 African Cup of Nations, and he has now turned his attention to upcoming opponents Inter.
Claudio Ranieri will be praying his Inter Milan team rediscover their winning touch away to Marseille in the Champions League round of 16.Ranieri guided Inter to an eight-match winning streak during December and January, but their form has since deserted them and they have now lost five of their past six matches in all competitions.
Marseille boss Didier Deschamps has dismissed suggestions Inter counterpart Claudio Ranieri will be gunning for revenge on Wednesday night.Deschamps was in charge of the Monaco side that sensationally dumped a Ranieri-led Chelsea out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage in 2004.
