The UEFA Champions League is back in our lives, as some of the best clubs from around Europe go head to head in an attempt to see who will reign supreme as the Champions of the continent. It’s widely considered to be the best club competition in the game today, and it’s not hard to see why. The majority of the worlds finest are set to compete from the group stages all the way through to the final, and we’re kicking things off strong on Matchday 1 as Inter Milan prepare to host Tottenham Hotspur.

Inter Milan

Following their final day heroics last season that secured their Champions League status, many would believe that Inter would carry forward their momentum into this season – but that hasn’t quite come to fruition. They’ve struggled in Serie A thus far with just one win from their opening four games, and it’ll be intriguing to see how they balance European football. If their forwards can find their rhythm, though, there’s no reason why they can’t make some noise.

Team News

Danilo D’Ambrosio will be assessed just prior to the game in order to see if he’s fit to start, but Sime Vrsaljko has definitely been ruled out due to a knee injury.

Tottenham

Despite starting off their season fairly strongly, most Spurs fans will tell you that they haven’t been at 100% thus far. Many supporters are still frustrated by their inability to make any real noise in the summer transfer window, and now that they’ve picked up a few injuries, there’s a good chance they could struggle. Still, they’ve got an exceptionally talented squad, and the real test will be whether or not they can turn on that European form that put them on the map a few years back.

Team News

Dele Alli’s hamstring issue ensures that he won’t be appearing in this one, with Hugo Lloris also still being on the shelf courtesy of a thigh problem. Sissoko is also out through injury as Spurs prepare to field a somewhat weakened side.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at the San Siro.
  • Inter Milan have won one, drawn one and lost two of their competitive games this season.
  • Tottenham have won three and lost two of their competitive games this season.
  • Inter have scored five goals and conceded four this season.
  • Tottenham have scored ten goals and conceded six this season.

Conclusion

This should be an interesting ‘battle of wits’ so to speak between two clubs who should be viewed as dark horses in this competition. The home crowd at the San Siro would often serve as great motivation for Inter to push forward and take the three points, but their poor start to the season could change that. If Spurs are able to put pressure on them from the word go and really threaten them, then there’s a good chance that they could not only come away with the win – but also do so in a very impressive manner.
