All or nothing for Inter, says Leonardo

Inter Milan manager Leonardo says his side will put everything on the line in Tuesday’s Champions League second leg against Bayern Munich.

Bayern won the first leg 1-0 of the Round of 16 tie in Milan and will be strong favourites to knock the reigning European champions out in Germany, but Inter’s Brazilian manager said his side will be aggressive in searching for a positive result.

“It’s a game in which both teams have to give everything they have, and they have a great deal. With the quality these two teams have, you get an idea of the game,” Leonardo said.

“It will be a different type of game nonetheless, because we’ve already played the (home) game, which we lost 1-0. We aren’t coming from a 0-0 draw.”

Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder said despite contrasting results from the two sides in their respective league clashes on the weekend, Inter – second on the Serie A table – were confident of causing an upset at the Allianz Arena and advancing to the final eight.

“They won last weekend (against Hamburg). They won 6-0 so I’m sure that will give them a bit of confidence. But we also have a good feeling. Even if we drew against Brescia (on Friday), we’re in good shape and it’ll be a nice game,” the Dutchman said.

“It’s always nice to play against my Dutch colleagues. I worked with (Bayern manager Louis) van Gaal at Ajax and of course with (Arjen) Robben in the national team and Real Madrid … I want to beat them, that’s the only thing.”
