Olympique Marseille coach Didier Deschamps feels Inter Milan are favourites going into the second-leg Champions League clash.

Marseille will defend a 1-0 lead at the San Siro.

“It is clear that after the first leg there is a small advantage, but Inter remains the favourite,” Deschamps said.

“I do not expect an easy time. However, we have nothing to lose and I think there is still a good chance we can qualify.

“Obviously I prefer to have all my players available and Loic Remy even more. He is our best player, our top scorer and he gives us efficiency. His return along with that of Stephane Mbia gives us a little more strength, which we will need tomorrow, Inter will put us under pressure.

“We must be able to resist it, but not only that, we need to play too. If we are fortunate enough to score a goal then it will become much more complicated for Inter.

“Our intentions are there - can we implement them? We will see.

“The big difference between the sides is that we have two results that qualify us while Inter only has one. They are obliged to win.”
