Internazionale duo Fabio Cannavaro and Alvaro Recoba will miss tomorrow’s Champions League match against Lyon

Italian international defender, Cannavaro and his Uruguayan team-mate suffered muscle injuries during Saturday’s 1-1 Serie A draw against Juventus and have been omitted from Hector Cuper’s squad for the tripÿto France.

The news comes as a blow to Inter, who require a win against Lyon to get their Champions League campaign on track. When the clubs met at the San Siro three weeks ago, the French champions pulled off a shock 2-1 win and currently top Group D while Inter lie in second spot.

Cannavaro will be replaced by Daniele Adani in defence, while Domenico Morfeo and Stephane Dalmat will vie to replace Recoba.
