Inter Milan striker Rodrigo Palacio insists they can clinch automatic Champions League qualification.

Inter are in joint sixth place with Roma on 47 points, while the final Champions League spot is held by AC Milan on 57 points.

"There are eight games to go and, if we win them all, then we can still qualify for the Champions League," argued Palacio.

"Losing Diego Milito was a heavy blow for the team, as he is a player who really makes the difference."
