Inter's Diego Milito is confident about beating Marseille in the Champions League
The Argentine scoring-machine admitted that the Nerazzurri are desperate to reach the quarter-finals of Europe's biggest club competition.
Diego Milito will be hoping to fire on all cylinders
Inter Milan striker Diego Milito believes that the Italian giants have what it takes to turn around their 1-0 deficit against Olympique Marseille as they set their sights on progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Nerazzurri came within seconds from picking up a precious draw in France in the first leg, but ended up conceding a frustrating late goal which has forced them to obtain a victory at the Giuseppe Meazza.
"We are convinced we can overturn the result. We played very well in the first leg and didn't deserve to lose. We are positive that we can win with the help of our own fans," Milito affirmed to Sky.
"We are positive that we can still do well in the Champions League. Obviously it is a different kind of competition. But if we pass this round we will be among the top eight teams in Europe."
Inter will be boosted by the fact that they finally returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Chievo in their latest league outing, with Milito securing his side the three points with a late headed goal.
"Tuesday's match is massive and we are desperate to do well, and after that we will have everything to play for. This team have already shown that they are capable of going all the way," concluded Milito.
Milito will play alongside Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan in what can be considered a lethal attacking partnership.
Opponents Marseille may come into the game with a slight advantage, but since beating Inter in February they have gone on to lose four consecutive league games, where they conceded five goals and scored zero.
