Inter without injured duo

Fabio Cannavaro and Alvaro Recoba will miss Internazionale FC's visit to Olympique Lyonnais on Tuesday.

Italian international captain Fabio Cannavaro and Uruguayan Alvaro Recoba will miss Internazionale FC's UEFA Champions League match against Olympique Lyonnais on Tuesday.

Muscle injuries
The two players suffered slight muscle injuries during yesterday's 1-1 Serie A draw against Juventus FC and were not included in Héctor Cúper's squad for the trip to France.

Adani in
Cannavaro should be replaced by Daniele Adani in defence, while Domenico Morfeo and Stéphane Dalmat will compete for a place in Inter's starting line-up as replacement for Recoba.

Inter second
The French champions are currently leading the Group with six points, while Inter and AFC Ajax have four points, two ahead of Rosenborg BK, who will go into their match against the Dutch champions having clinched their eleventh consecutive Norwegian title at the weekend.
