Tottenham vs Inter
Tottenham will face Inter in the 5th round of CL.
Barcelona are the leaders of the group with 10 points and practically they already qualified for the next round. Inter and Tottenham look like will battle for the 2nd place, which gives a CL participation during the spring. Inter have 7 points, while Tottenham are with 4, so everything else expect a home win here for Tottenham will mean that Inter will also book their place in the next phase of CL. I can not imagine the intrigue to be over so early before the final round, not after the comeback Tottenham made against PSV in the previous game, when they outplayed the Dutch team, but goals just didn't want to come earlier than in the 2nd part of the 2nd half.
Even if Tottenham win in this games, their job will be very tough because in the last round they will visit Barca, while Inter will host PSV. So, a win in this match is the only option to save little chances for CL.
Tottenham performed brilliant against Chelsea during the weekend, beating them 3:1 at home. That speaks a lot they will feel confident before another huge game against Inter they will have. Inter are 3rd in Serie A just behind Napoli and Juve, so they obviously don't have to be underestimated. Inter suffered a huge loss against Atalanta two weeks ago with 4:1, so it's not impossible a team full of quality players to be outplayed. Brozovic, Perisic, Icardi, Keita..that's just a small part of their quality team.
Tottenham will miss here Davinson Sanchez, Dembele, Trippier and Rose, while Lloris is back in the squad. Inter will be without Vrsaljko, while Dalbert and Mario are ineligible to play.
The first game between them finished 2:1 for Inter after a late comeback by the Italians in the last 7-8 minutes. I expect another close game, but this time the winner to be the English team, maybe with a goal difference.
