Valencia’s goalless draw with Inter has placed them in the unenviable position of relying upon the Italian side doing them a favour, if they are to have a chance of making the last 16 of the Champions League.
Valencia must win their remaining two games against Werder Bremen and Anderlecht, and hope the Italians win their match in Germany if they are to stay in the competition.
“We made things complicated for ourselves with the result at home to Inter,” said Valencia’s Italian striker Marco Di Vaio.
“We now have to win our other matches and just hope for good news from elsewhere. It’s a real shame because we aren’t a worse side than Werder.”
Goalkeeper Santiago Canizares admitted that his team’s chances of goingthrough, look remote.
“We got a point here and that means we still have a chance of turning things around,” he said.
“Now we need to hope that fortune is on our side. We now depend on Inter, but we aren’t going to be thinking of that when we go out to win our next match.”
Inter top the group with 10 points from four games, one ahead of Bremen and Valencia are third with four points.
