Champions League final is more than a dream: Massimo Moratti

Camp Nou: Inter president Massimo Moratti has underlined the importance of the Champions League clash against Barcelona.

Moratti hopes his Nerazzurri can reach the European Cup final for the first time since 1972 when Ajax beat Inter 2-0 in Rotterdam.

"The final is more than just a dream for us," he told Sky Sport 24.

Barcelona stand in the way of progress despite Inter`s 3-1 aggregate cushion. Fans of the Spanish club have done everything to rattle the opposition. Jose Mourinho`s car was attacked, and players kept awake by trouble outside their hotel.

But Moratti insists the atmosphere within the group is confident and calm.

"I heard some noise last night but I was able to sleep well without any worries," he said in relation to paper bombs, let off by Barcelona fans, exploding outside the hotel.

"Tension is normal for a game like this, but I can see the team is tranquil."

Meanwhile, La Repubblica reports that 5,000 Inter are prowling the city`s streets ahead of the clash at Camp Nou.
