Inter Milan vs Tottenham
Date: Tuesday, 18th September 2018
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza aka San Siro, (Milan).
Inter Milan returns to Champions League and first up is a stern test with Tottenham. Besides, they are handed a tough group alongside mighty Barcelona and Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven.
Form has been not good for Inter at the start of the season, with the team primarily struggling to convert chances despite keeping possession with easy. They managed just 1 win from the four Serie A games so far and the weekend saw the lowest point of this when they were beaten at home by Parma.
On the other hand, Spurs started their Premier League campaign with a three match winning streak. However, things have taken a toll with defeats to Watford and Liverpool by the same 2-1 margin on either side of the international break.
It has to be said that Spurs never looked at their best even when they were winning games. They do lack their fluidity and their defense look like the worst in over 3 seasons.
Inter Milan vs Tottenham Head-to-head
The previous 4 overall meetings between these sides resulted in home wins.
The most recent was in 2012/13 Europa League round of 16. Spurs bagged a 3-0 win at home, but Inter bounced back with a 4-1 win at San Siro in the reverse leg and ensured progress to the quarter final.
The other meeting was in 2010/11 season, their only previous group stage meeting in the Champions League. Inter bagged a 4-3 win at home before losing 3-1 at London.
So, we have seen all four h2h meetings saw over 2.5 goals and three of those saw btts.
Inter Milan have a strong record at home against English Premier League clubs 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses from 15.
Spurs managed just 1 win from their 9 previous visits to Italy, drew and lost 4 each.
Inter Milan vs Tottenham Prediction
Inter have had an underwhelming start to the season and the pressure is suddenly on Luciano Spalletti following the 0-1 home defeat to Parma on the weekend.
Spurs too have problems and they are on a two match losing streak. It is an understatement that their defense is put to constant hammering in every match they played this season.
Inter’s problem this season has been scoring goals despite being able to hold possession and create chances.
They could get some clear cut chances on Tuesday and they could well put these woes behind them. But be sure that this Spurs side had scored in every match this season (10 goals from 5 games).
Thus, both teams to score automatically qualify as my top pick for this match.
