Line-ups: Neftci-Inter

As expected, Esteban Cambiasso takes a new role at the centre of the Inter defence against Neftci this evening.

The Nerazzurri are in Azerbaijan for the second game in the Europa League group phase, which kicks off at 17.00 UK time.

Several stars have been left behind to rest, such as Diego Milito, Antonio Cassano, Javier Zanetti and the injured Rodrigo Palacio and Cristian Chivu.

Coach Andrea Stramaccioni sticks with the 3-5-2 system, but brings back Cambiasso to the centre of the defence.

Philippe Coutinho is the support for young striker Marko Livaja.

Neftci are the first side from Azerbaijan to reach the group phase of a UEFA club competition.
