MANCHESTER - After withstanding Manchester United's dominating performance two weeks ago, Inter Milan get a chance to oust the Champions League holders and reach the quarterfinals.

Inter manager Jose Mourinho has history on his side going into the second leg at Old Trafford: He has lost just one of 13 clashes with United's Alex Ferguson.

The most memorable of Mourinho's victories came on his first visit to Old Trafford five years ago when he guided eventual champion FC Porto to the final eight and sprinted down the touchline in celebration.

Mourinho joined Inter last summer after a stint at Chelsea, where he twice beat Ferguson's side to the Premier League title.

The Red Devils outplayed the Italian league leaders at the San Siro, but had to settle for a 0-0 draw.

That puts extra pressure on United's formidable defence to stop Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Adriano. Despite concerns over Rio Ferdinand's fitness, centerback Namanja Vidic. will return after missing the first leg at the San Siro through suspension.

But Ibrahimovic is not worried aby playing against Vidic. "It's no problem for me to play against the best because that's part of the challenge. Players look forward to big occasions. You have to enjoy them," said Ibrahimovic.

"But I don't think that any team really plays for a draw.."

United defender Patrice Evra is confident y. "We really feel that people cannot score against us, be it home or away," the Frenchman said.

"It makes us feel incredibly confident. We know we can win by scoring a single goal because we are able to hold on to a result." Evra lost out to Mourinho's Porto side in the 2004 final during his Monaco days. - Sapa-AP
