Olympique Marseille coach Didier Deschamps won't be underestimating Champions League opponents Inter Milan.

The Nerazzurri have lost five of their last six games in all competition and visit OM in the first leg of their Round of 16 tie on Wednesday evening.

“Inter have many international stars who are accustomed to playing in the Champions League and can make the difference, like Diego Milito, Giampaolo Pazzini and Wesley Sneijder,” said Deschamps in his press conference.

“They are capable of making their opponents quake. Their value is beyond doubt and will be different to what we’ve seen in recent Serie A games.

“Don’t forget nine of their players won the Champions League Final only a year and a half ago, so their return to Europe will bring new motivation.”
