The Big Tactical And Psychological War Of The Second Leg has started between Manchester United and Inter Milan: Jose Mourinho left Esteban Cambiasso out of training tonight.

First guess would be that the influential holding midfielder is injured but sources claim that the only reason os his absence is that Mourinho’s trying to confuse Sir Alex, to con him into expecting an Inter line-up without Cambiasso.

Will Fergie fall for it? I doubt it, for two reasons: he must have heard the above rumours and I doubt his gameplan will change a lot if Cambiasso is not involved. Granted, he’s a huge player for Inter and his absence would be great news – but leaving him out would be no tactical advantage for Mourinho, he would merely weaken his team and thus play into our hands.

If he’s really injured though then tough luck. We’ll see tomorrow.
