Champions League: Marseille, Bayern in quarters

Related Stories

Milan/Munich, March 14 (IANS) Marseille knocked Inter Milan out of the Champions League football to reach the quarterfinals, thanks to an away goal scored in the stoppage time at San Siro. Bayern Munich trounced Basel 7-0 in Munich.

Brandao drove in a lethal goal in the second minute of the injury time Tuesday to leave Inter being distraught winners of the game - they won 2-1 but failed to progress with an aggregate score 2-2.

Inter spurned easy early chances but Diego Milito's scrappy 75th-minute goal appeared enough to force extra-time at least. Then came the Brandao's goal.

Even though there was a further twist when Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda fouled Giampaolo Pazzini, earning a second yellow card and allowing the Italy international to give Inter victory on the night, boss Ranieri's side went out on the away-goals rule.

Inter head coach Claudio Ranieri felt his side's exit 'sums up our season, but the lads could not have given any more.'

'It sums up our season. Perhaps we played better in both legs, but conceded twice in stoppages despite having the best chances,' he was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

'I think in 180 minutes we allowed three shots on target, but the team that score goals is the one that wins, so compliments to Marseille.'

Marseille head coach Didier Deschamps admitted his team had achieved 'something extraordinary' in knocking Inter out of the Champions League.

'The players knew what they had to do, it was a complicated game and we didn' t have many chances, as we could have done better going forward,' he said.

'This is something extraordinary that we have achieved here. Inter remain a great team and we are a small club, so it is hugely satisfying,' he said.

In the other match, Mario Gomez scored four times to help Bayern record their biggest win in a Champions League knock-out match. Arjen Robben netted twice while Thomas Mueller added one in the second leg of the last 16 stage.
