Ranocchia resumes Inter training ahead of Olympique de Marseille clash

The defender was expected to miss out on Tuesday's encounter due to injury, but has recovered in time to make the squad and is now in contention for the Nerazzurri
Inter coach Claudio Ranieri has received some positive news from the treatment table in the buildup toward Tuesday evening's Champions League round of 16 second leg at home against Olympique de Marseille with defender Andrea Ranocchia deemed match fit.

The center back has spent the past few weeks on the sidelines due to a thigh injury, but is ready to make his comeback after having returned to the training ground.

Ranocchia featured in Monday's training without any noteworthy problems, and has been included in the match squad for the game against Marseille at the Giuseppe Meazza.

The Italy international is likely to start the game from the bench as Maicon, Lucio, Walter Samuel and Yuto Nagatomo are expected to form the Nerazzurri's defensive line.

Inter was beaten 1-0 in the first leg versus the Ligue 1 giants.
