Claudio Ranieri's grip on the Inter job became even more tenuous as Inter exited from the Champions League undone by a added time Brandao goal. They looked to have booked their passage through Diego Milito's second half goal. But Inter's vaunted defense have never looked worse or as sluggish when they let the Brazilian score the vital away goal and the equalizer.
Not even Steve Mandanda's sending off and Giampaolo Pazzini's last minute spot kick could damage Marseilles prospects. Mandanda was the other Marseilles hero bringing off two very good saves from Sneijder and then Milito.
Inter are in 7th place and in CL qualifying jeopardy. They are out of the Coppa Italia, so there is very little likelihood for any honours this year.
However, Massimo Moratti in a post match statement reiterated his faith in the coach stating it was not his fault. He said he might have considered a change if it was a 4-0 result but scoring two goals in the second leg was not a bad result. He said he was not about to take any action because Ranieri did not deserve it.
