Tottenham vs. Inter Milan / Champions League – In one of the most interesting matches in the fifth round of the Champions League, we have two teams that are direct rivals in the fight for placement in the knockout stage, since Inter is currently in the second place of Group B with only three points more than the third Tottenham. We should also add that their duel at the very start of the Champions League ended with the home victory of Inter with 2-1.
Tottenham vs. Inter Milan begins 28.11.2018 at 21:00 CET
That is why the team from London currently has these three points behind the “Nerazzurri”, with the proviso that the Spurs have after their defeat in Milan lost with 4-2 from Barcelona, which is also the current leader of the group with 10 points won. However, coach Pochettino’s players have won four points in a row from the Dutch PSV, so they are again in the game for the second place in the group, but they need a victory over Inter to extend their hope for placement in the knockout stage
Of course they will do their best to reach it, especially since they are in a series of five wins, one of which took place in the Champions League, one in the League Cup and three in the Championship, which brought them a breakthrough in the third place on the table. Last weekend they have defeated the third ranked Chelsea with 3-1 in the big city derby, so we now against Inter expect the same 11 players on the field, especially since the injured defenders Trippier, Sanchez and Rose, midfielder Dembele and striker Janssen are all out of action.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – Aurier, Foyth, Vertonghen, Davies – Dier – Sissoko, Alli, Eriksen – Kane, Son
Unlike Spurs which have started this edition of the Champions League with two defeats, Inter has in the same period made a home victory over Tottenham and over PSV as guests, while they in two matches with Barcelona recorded a defeat as guests and a draw at home (1-1). This point at the end could be crucial in the fight for the knockout stage, given that they are after this hosting in London welcoming the team of PSV on their field.
This in reality means that the team of Inter can play a lot more relaxed now in London than their rivals, because in case of a defeat they would have an additional chance to fix things in front of their supporters. Otherwise, the “Nerazzurri” are doing very well in the championship, since they are in the third position on the table after 13 round played, with just one point less than the second Napoli. We should also add that defender Vrsaljko is injured, while defender Dalbert and midfielders Gagliardini and Joao Mario are not even registered.
Probable lineups Inter Milan: Handanovic – D'Ambrosio, de Vrij, Skriniar, Asamoah – Vecino, Brozović – Politano, Nainggolan, Perisic – Icardi
Tottenham vs. Inter Milan PICK
Bearing in mind that the team of Tottenham only with a victory in this match remains in the game for the knockout phase of the Champions League, we believe that they will do their best to reach it with great support from the stands.
