Chelsea's match squad.

No Zhirkov and Deco, but Alex and Belletti are back.

Also long-term injuries A.Cole, Essien and Bosingwa are out. Paolo Ferreira is not listed either because he's not part of the CL squad. That means Ancelotti may have to use Belletti right from the start, despite the Brazilian coming back from knee-injury.

Injuries are clearly in Inter's favour at this point. Hopefully they will affect Chelsea's performance.

Chelsea's fans on a different forum are pretty sure Belletti will start left back, CafeCordoba is right its definitely to our advantage.

Eh. Odds are on Chelsea's side despite the injuries. The material difference is still there. So I don't understand this comment.

Whats with the negativity man, think positive and positive things will happen. I fear that we might lose aswell, but I will be cheering as loud as I can tomorrow night. I'm pretty sure the players will be going into this positively so us fans should aswell.
I've tried to. I was positive against Villareal. I was positive against Valencia, I was also positive against Liverpool, United and Barca, and we saw that Inter were powerless in at least the 3 last ones...
And of course I will be cheering as loud as ever tomorrow, I will be screaming non mollare mai from the top of my lungs, but the EPL-teams are far, far, far superior to the Serie A-teams (except Milan who are insane in CL). But whatever, I'm happy if we manage to score. It was a while ago...

Man, reading that gives me the blues, man.

Are we really that hopeless?

Maybe it's better not to think we're good enough to beat Chlsea, so that we'll not be disappointed.

Walter Samuel,
We should go 4-3-3 and exploit Chelsea's left side.

It might sound a bit sad but if we can beat Chelsea over 2 legs, it'll probably be one the greatest things that's ever happened to me... To be able to shut up all the haters would be an amazing feeling.

Recalcati suggests Mourinho could use 4-2-3-1 since Zanetti has to play LB. I would say Inter will not survive with 4-2-3-1 with Cambiass in the midfield. Or then Stankovic-Cambiasso will need a real support from Eto'o-Sneijder-Pandev.

These 3 are really disciplined with high humility. i think it can work. Etoo and Pandev can close the wings.
i would rather see this line-up, than the usual CL-sucker 4312 with Motta or Muntari in it.

and if we considers that Ancelotti have problems with wingbacks, than this 4231 is a must.

Walter Samuel,
Regarding Belletti, he didn't train yesterday so even he isn't guaranteed to start. If he's not fit then Ancelotti might be forced to play Malouda at LB.

Problem is I haven't yet seen Pandev closing down anything, and he has played couple of times on the wing and as AM. He's also pretty slow. Surely he's pumped up for this match and Eto'o gives the needed cover from the wing but I'm still very sceptic over 4-2-3-1 with Cambiasso starting. Hopefully I'm dearly wrong if that's what Mourinho decides to go with.

I'm more optimistic than never in my life for an Inter match... I'm convinced we can beat Chelsea in Italy. If we beat them in Italy, we will go further, cause in England we will park the bus in our goal :p.

FORZA INTER! NON MOLLARE MAI

Zanetti.
less than 48 hours now, hopefully my ever growing optimism ahead of a UCL dont degrade from every minute we play at Meazza.
Hopefully a 1-0 or a 2-0 result will do wonders to us going to the Bridge.

from Chelsea's official site

BRAZILIANS BACK

Alex and Juliano Belletti will this morning (Tuesday) fly to Italy for Wednesday's Champions League first knockout round first leg. Yury Zhirkov is not part of the squad.

Alex has been passed fit following the knee injury that prevented his involvement at Wolves at the weekend and Belletti is back after a month out with a knee injury suffered during the game at Preston.

Zhirkov has failed to recover in time from the calf problem that saw him withdrawn during Saturday's game so joins long-term injured Jose Bosingwa, Michael Essien and Ashley Cole in not making the trip.

With Paulo Ferreira not registered in the Champions League squad, Carlo Ancelotti will have to weigh up his options to fill the left-back slot.

Frank Lampard has recovered from the virus that kept him out the last game and travels but Deco remains unavailable.

The travelling squad of 20 is:

Petr Cech
Ross Turnbull
Hilario
Branislav Ivanovic
Ricardo Carvalho
John Terry
Alex
Jeffrey Bruma
Juliano Belletti
John Mikel Obi
Michael Ballack
Frank Lampard
Joe Cole
Florent Malouda
Gael Kakuta
Salomon Kalou
Daniel Sturridge
Nicolas Anelka
Fabio Borini
Didier Drogba
