Inter vs Tottenham Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Tuesday, Inter Milan will host Tottenham in the first round of the group B campaign. The match will be played at the San Siro Stadium.
Inter Milan are returning to the Champions League and their first opponent is certainly not an easy one. They were handed a difficult group with the likes of Barcelona and PSV. The fact that their form has not been great in the previous weeks is not something that works in their favor, as the English club is not someone who takes things lightly and will do their best to get a win. They lost to Parma by the score of 0-1 in the previous week and Tottenham are a much tougher nut to crack.
Tottenham are looking decent in some elements of the game and lack in others. Their game lacks the fluidity and easy transitions that it had in the previous season and their defensive line looks like a downgrade compared to the last season. They have lost the previous two matches in the Premier League. The first defeat was a close loss to Watford and the most recent one to Liverpool showed all of their bad sides. Liverpool dominated the stats and looked like a much better team. Tottenham’s star striker, Harry Kane, is still trying to find his form as he has scored two goals from the previous five matches in the domestic league. Those numbers are below his standards and as the Spurs’ game heavily depends on him, that could be troublesome.
The two teams have had their fair share of encounters. They have played a total of five matches. Of those five, Tottenham have won three, and Inter have won the remaining two. It is worth noting that in four of those five clashes, we have seen both teams score and that the teams averaged 5.2 goals per game.
The main referee for the match in Italy is Clément Turpin from France. Assistant referees are Nicolas Danos and Cyril Gringore. We expect match without lots of fouls so it will be a game without many cards. So we will enjoy in a good football game with lots of shots from the distance and several good scoring chances.
Inter coach Luciano Spalletti: "This is a competition you wouldn't swap for anything in the world. You experience truly wonderful emotions. After you've been in it, you can't go without it."
Inter midfielder Matías Vecino: "It will be crucial to pick up points at home in the Champions League. Tottenham is a very important game in our current spell."
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "It will be a very competitive group stage and it’s very important for us to get a positive result tomorrow. Both teams arrive in a similar situation and we’re both going to fight to change that feeling."
Inter have several missing players for the match with Spurs. Sime Vrsaljko is injured and he will not play. Dalbert, Roberto Gagliardini and João Mário are doubtful for the match. Danilo D'Ambrosio and Lautaro Martínez are not fully fit and they are also doubtful for the match against Tottenham. All other players are available for the opening game in the Champions League.
On the other side Tottenham also have several missing players for this game. Hugo Lloris, Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko are injured and they can't help Tottenham in Italy. Juan Foyth, Georges-Kévin Nkoudou and Vincent Janssen are unavailable to play. All other players are ready for the match.
