    Rubin Kazan - Inter (29 Sep 09)



    vs
    Tue, Sep 29 2009, 18:30



    The European football spotlight will shine for the first time on Kazan, capital of the Russian province of Tatarstan, when local favourites FC Rubin Kazan play host to FC Internazionale Milano in Group F on Matchday 2.

    • Beaten 3-1 at FC Dynamo Kyiv on their group-stage bow, Rubin are making their home debut in the UEFA Champions League at the Tsentralnyi Stadium. The Italian titleholders shared a goalless draw with holders FC Barcelona on Matchday 1.

    Match background
    • Inter are looking for a third successive win on their travels to Russia.

    • Kurban Berdyev's Russian champions are newcomers to the international stage and their 1-0 home loss to another Serie A side, Parma FC, in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup first round is their only previous home match in UEFA club competition proper, excluding the UEFA Intertoto Cup.

    • Only Macbeth Sibaya and the recently returned Alejandro Domínguez of the present Rubin squad featured in that game against Parma, Lasha Salukvadze and Nukri Revishvili watching from the bench. Rubin also lost the second leg 1-0.

    • Adding qualifying rounds to the equation, Rubin have played five home games against European opposition and have a mixed record of two wins, two defeats and one draw.

    • Inter have performed impressively on Russian soil in the past, recording three wins and just one defeat on six previous visits.

    • The Nerazzurri's most recent trip yielded a 2-1 comeback win at PFC CSKA Moskva in the 2007/08 group stage, Hernán Crespo and Walter Samuel scoring second-half goals.

    • Twelve months earlier they earned a 1-0 victory away to FC Spartak Mosvka at the same stage of the competition.

    Team ties
    • Domínguez and Inter's Esteban Cambiasso were team-mates at CA River Plate, winning the Argentinian Clausura championship together in 2001/02.

    • Rubin midfielder Sibaya was an unused substitute when Rosenborg BK held Inter 2-2 at home in their opening game of the 2002/03 group stage. Sibaya also remained on the bench for Rosenborg's subsequent 3-0 reverse at San Siro.

    • With his previous club Chelsea FC, Inter coach José Mourinho oversaw home (2-0) and away (1-0) victories against a CSKA Moskva side featuring Rubin's Sergei Semak in the 2004/05 group stage.

    • Semak scored twice away to Parma in the 2002/03 UEFA Cup first round – his efforts in vain as his CSKA side conceded a last-minute goal to lose 3-2 on the night, 4-3 on aggregate.

    I think this will be a very hard match for soo many factors,more than anything Jose isnt good handling teams he doesnt know or see alot of.The weather,the journey and the tired legs are all factors.The fact we lost our last match to me should be one hell of a motivator though...

    It's going to be a very though game...Pitch will be bad 100%.

    I think that Suazo and Eto'o can make a diference with their speed.

    Quaresma should start also.

    Please Jose,don't put Viera in the game!

    Yes, i wish to never see 1919 open a match thread again.

    Back to the topic, the trips to Russia are always the hardest, but i feel our experience and ability show see us through with a 2-1 victory.

    Or mabye balotelli as the trequartista. He's played there in the azzurrini so why not give it a try?

    The fact that we're playing with last season's midfield really pisses me off, I think we'll start with the formation against Samp maybe with Muntari instead of Vieira.

    lol...If you call defending champions that are 7 points clear of Zenit as struggling, then you're a harsh critic

    I think after the Dynamo Kiev game they lost confidence and the sense of invincibility they had developed when playing in their league.Its maybe a nice time to face them in that perspective but a VERY BAD time considering that our 2 most technical midfielders aren't playing. We are basically playing with last year's midfield ,we all know what that means...

    Not much is known about the opponent and we will be missing Motta and Sneijder in MF. Not going to be easy

    I've been thinking our formation would probably be one of these two considering the lack of options in midfield.


    0 0 Milito 0 Eto'o 0 0<br />
0 0 0 0 0 0 0<br />
0 0 0 Stankovic 0 0 0<br />
0 Muntari 0 0 0 Zanetti 0<br />
0 0 0 Cambiasso 0 0 0<br />
0 0 0 0 0 0 0<br />
Chivu 0 Samuel 0 Lucio 0 Maicon<br />
Julio Cesar

    Instead of Muntari there could be Vieira but I'm betting if it comes to either one or the other it would definitely be Muntari. Then if we opt for the 4-3-3 it could be something like this:

     0 0 0 Milito 0 0 0<br />
0 Balotelli 0 0 0 Eto'o 0<br />
0 0 0 0 0 0 0<br />
0 Zanetti 0 0 0 Stankovic 0<br />
0 0 0 Cambiasso 0 0 0<br />
Chivu 0 Samuel 0 Lucio 0 Maicon<br />
0 0 0 0 0 0 0<br />
Julio Cesar

    So if Mou doesn't show any confidence in both Muntari and Vieira, I'm betting this would be our formation, my preference from the two would be the latter.

    In their last match they lost(Rubin 1-2 Amkar). Now Spartak is only 4 points behind them.

    Zanetti, Chuchu



    New poster just wanted to chime in here and say that a loss in this game would be a complete and unmitigated disaster that could send the team into a downward spiral. Even a draw would be an extremely poor result.

    It is always difficult playing in Russia. Fortunately, it is September and not January! Add to this our losses of Sneidjer and Motta - the two players at our thinnest position. It is going to be a tough game...

    Fortunately, I think that this team is built to grind out wins in "tough" games. I have faith in them.

    As far as tactics go, I totally agree with Toninu above. I would play his 4-3-3 (switching Esteban and Zanetti). But I think that Jose will play the 4-4-2.

    Prediction: 2-0 Inter (Eto'o, Samuel).
