Domestic football is back and that means only one thing: the return of the Champions League. Well, it also means the return of many other competitions, but the Champions League represents the best of the best and we’re excited to see how this Matchday unfolds over the next few days. Tottenham Hotspur will be returning to action against Inter Milan, and while a lot of their focus will be on the Premier League this season, they’ll be desperate to gain a measure of revenge against the Italian side.

Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino has been able to turn things around in a big way with Spurs following an uncertain start to the campaign, with many fans viewing their win over Chelsea at the weekend as a huge moment in their push for a successful season. They’ve been able to lock many of their top stars down to long term deals, and now, it’s just a case of maintaining their consistency. It’s going to be hard given the quality of opposition they tend to face, but there’s no denying that they’ve got the quality in their squad to do it.

Team News

Dembele, Sanchez and Janssen are out until 2019, but the biggest absence of all for Spurs will be Kieran Trippier who has a groin injury.

Inter Milan

Inter Milan have had a strong start to the season both in the league and in Europe, although they’re still a few steps away from where they want to be in many ways. The pressure is certainly going to be on their shoulders in this one because while they may have already beaten Spurs this season, many fans still believe it was a fluke. In order to put that debate to rest, and in order to secure their place in the knockout stages before the final Matchday, they need to make a real statement in London.

Team News

Sime Vrsaljko has recovered and travelled with the team for this one, with Perisic being expected to beat out Balde for a place in the starting XI.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at Wembley Stadium.
  • Tottenham have won five and lost one of their last six games.
  • Inter Milan have won three, drawn one and lost two of their last six games.
  • Inter Milan lead the overall head to head standings 3-2.
  • In their last meeting back in September, Inter Milan won 2-1.

Conclusion

This is the definition of a must win encounter for Tottenham Hotspur, but thankfully for them, they’ve been on a phenomenal run of form lately. They seem to have the right kind of momentum going into a game of this magnitude whereas Inter can be a bit hit and miss, and despite the fact this will be played at Wembley instead of Spurs’ new stadium, we believe the rowdy ‘home’ fans are going to produce an atmosphere worthy of helping to push Tottenham through towards an emphatic 3-1 victory.
