MILAN - Inter finish top of Uefa Champions League Group G thanks to a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Anderlecht in Tuesday's Matchday 6 clash at the Meazza. Werder Bremen beat Valencia 2-0 at the Mestalla to qualify for the knockout stage as runners-up.

Julio Cruz opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with a low shot into the bottom right-hand corner after a splendid piece of skill by Alvaro Recoba put the Argentine through on goal.

Obafemi Martins added a brace in the second half with clinical finishes from excellent through balls by Davids and Emre to make sure the Belgians finish their 2004/05 European campaign without a point.

The Nerazzurri are back on the road this Sunday afternoon with a trip to Siena in Week 15 of the Serie A.
