NORWICH, England (AP) – Two weeks after a shock loss to Trabzonspor, Inter Milan will be looking for its first win in the Champions League when it visits CSKA Moscow on Tuesday.
Inter earned its first Serie A win of the season on Saturday, beating 10-man Bologna 3-1 in Claudio Ranieri's first match as coach. Ranieri was hired last week to replace Gian Piero Gasperini, who was fired after a 3-1 loss to newly promoted Novara.
''Ranieri has given us a lot of order in very little time,'' Inter captain Javier Zanetti said. ''Now we're heading to Moscow with confidence.''
''Now we've got to bounce back in the Champions League, starting in Moscow,'' Milito said.
The clubs have met in the Champions League four times - in the quarterfinals two seasons ago and in the group stage in 2007 - and the Italian side won each match.
''The Champions League is always a very balanced competition, so one loss doesn't mean a whole lot,'' said Pazzini, who wasn't used much under Gasperini but was thrust into a starter's role in first Ranieri's match in charge.
''We've got five matches to play and we know we can qualify,'' Pazzini added. ''Clearly it won't be easy, but in Moscow we've got to show that hunger and nastiness which has made us stand out.''
CSKA coach Leonid Slutskiy noticed that Ranieri had changed Inter's tactics and starting lineups and the team played more aggressively.
''Inter has the same high-class players and for any club in the world it will be tough to play against it, no matter who coaches them (the Italians),'' Slutskiy said. ''For us every match is important, especially the one at home. But for Inter it will be even twice as important as they have already lost to Trabzonspor.''
CSKA, which secured a 2-2 draw at Lille in its Group B opener, beat Volga 3-1 Saturday and remains second in the league, two points behind leader Zenit St. Petersburg.
''Yes, we have lost the advantage we had, but I wouldn't say it's a crisis,'' CSKA defender Sergei Ignashevich said. ''If all the players show their best soccer, I'm sure we will have every chance to win the game.''
Meanwhile, CSKA will be without first-choice goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, who has a season-ending left knee injury. Midfielder Keisuke Honda is also out with an injury, while Serbia midfielder Zoran Tosic is also in doubt.
''Unfortunately, it's not that difficult for us to name the starting lineup as we are missing so many players because of injuries,'' Slutskiy said.
In the other Group B match, Lille will be at the competition newcomer Trabzonspor.
Lille is coming off Saturday's frustrating 1-1 draw at home against Lorient, which equalized in the final seconds - and is looking forward to the Champions League play.
''This competition is welcome,'' Lille manager Rudy Garcia told the team's website. ''It's going to allow us to get right back in the swing of things, and we're going to do everything that we can to get a win against Trabzonspor.''
Lille has now drawn four straight matches - starting with the one with CSKA.
Polish midfielder Ludovic Obraniak remains doubtful after injuring his ankle against Lorient, Garcia was quoted as saying on the website of French sports daily L'Equipe on Monday.
Cameroon defender Aurelien Chedjou, who has been out with a thigh injury since Sept. 10, is also unlikely to play.
''It's dragging on, and we don't want to take any risks,'' Garcia told L'Equipe.
