thumbnail Hello,

Inter midfielder Houssine Kharja has made it clear that the Champions League tie with Bayern Munich isn't over just yet.

Champions League holders Inter created plenty of chances in Wednesday's entertaining game against Bayern Munich, but they failed to find the net and the Germans eventually recorded an important 1-0 away win.

Midfielder Houssine Kharja, who made his Champions League debut for Inter, pointed out that the tie isn't over just yet though.

"I could have scored and it's a shame I didn't, because it would have been a great way to make my Champions league debut. It wasn't to be and I hope I can score in the second leg," said Kharja to uefa.com.

"My debut all happened in a bit of a flurry because Andrea Ranocchia got injured and suddenly I had to replace him.

"But you don't really have time to think about the individual significance at the time because you're just worried about helping out the team – and given the result I'm very disappointed with how it went."

Kharja came on for the final 15 minutes after Ranocchia picked up a knock in a collision as he attempted to halt Arjen Robben's run as Bayern continued to control much of the play.

"We knew they would attack us because they're a side that plays very well in midfield and attack," added Kharja. "They have great players and we knew it would be an open game because they like to play with the ball on the ground, starting from the goalkeeper.

"On the whole, we played well tonight; we pushed on creating lots of chances, but it was just a shame that we didn't score and they did right at the end.

"For the second leg we'll go there, send out our strikers and if we score we'll give them a few problems."

Inter will need to score at least twice to progress when they travel to Munich for the second leg on March 15.
