A weakened Inter team is spanked by Werder Bremen and finishes second to Spurs in Group A. Goals from Sebastian Proedl, Marko Arnautovic, and Claudio Pizzarro gave already eliminated Werder a 3-0 win.
Before the match, Massimo Moratti made it amply clear that he wanted to end the CL group stage on a high note before the club departed for the Club World Cup later this month. The world tournament could not have come at a more fortuitous time for the beleaguered Rafa. His hopes of surviving now rest on achieving success at the CWC.
