Maicon knee injury a worry for Inter

FC Internazionale Milano's Brazilian international right-back Maicon is expected to miss the round of 16 decider against Olympique de Marseille with a strained tendon in his knee.

Maicon is expected to sit out FC Internazionale Milano's UEFA Champions League round of 16 decider against Olympique de Marseille after the right-back strained a tendon in his knee during Wednesday's 1-0 defeat in France.

The 30-year-old failed to re-emerge after half-time at the Stade Vélodrome having suffered the injury in the opening 45 minutes. Scans today confirmed the problem, which is likely to keep the Brazilian international sidelined for the second leg at San Siro on 13 March.
