Tottenham Hotspur vs Internazionale Preview

Tottenham Hotspur vs Internazionale

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Wembley

Date: 28th November 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

It is never an easy task to qualify from a Champions League group that has Barcelona and Inter Milan, but Tottenham are making this one even more difficult to think about.

The Lilywhites were beaten by Inter Milan in Milan and expectedly lost to Barcelona at Wembley, however, they failed to beat PSV away from home before staging a late comeback to see off the Dutch men at home in their last game which raises a lot of questions.

Tottenham are currently 3rd in their Champions League group, 3 points behind the last qualifying spot which is coincidentally held by Inter Milan.

A win here could move them into the 2nd position until they play Barcelona away in their last group game.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won their last 5 games in all competitions and Tottenham should look at Atalanta’s 4-1 win over Inter at the weekend for some inspiration.

Inter Milan won this competition under Jose Mourinho in 2010, but they have been struggling to even qualify for some time now.

The former kings of Europe look to be back near the top of their game this season as they have won 11 of their 17 competitive fixtures so far.

Luciano Spaletti’s men have scored in all but 3 games this season and they have netted in all but one of their last 13 matches, so they will be looking to take advantage of the occasional slip up Tottenham’s defence allows.

Tottenham haven’t kept a clean sheet in the Champions League this season and they have conceded 9 times in their 4 group games prior to this.

Bookmakers have price Tottenham up as odds-on favourites to get all three points here while goal markets strongly point to goals as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.
