Inter Milan vs Tottenham - 9/18/18 UEFA Champions League Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Inter Milan will host Tottenham for the first match of the group stage of the 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League.

Tottenham started the season well beating Manchester United at Old Trafford but have since lost 2 matches and the team will be desperate to return to winning ways. The team should be boosted by the return of Hugo Lloris who missed the last game due to his legal issues with drink driving. Lloris will strengthen the goalkeeping department greatly as Vorm had a horrible game against Liverpool. Playing away from home is never easy in the Champions League since the team has to travel to another country but this should not be a massive issue since Spurs have beaten the likes of Borussia Dortmund away from home last season.

On the other side of the coin, Inter Milan are struggling in Serie A. Inter Milan have only won 1 game since the start of the season and this is especially disappointing since the team has had a relatively easy run of fixtures. The defense has been the biggest issue as the team has only kept one clean sheet in the entire season. Tottenham will make life hard for the Inter Milan defenders and it will be interesting to see if the players have the ability to raise their games for the occasion. This is a big match for Inter Milan since the club will be returning to the Champions League after many seasons. This should ensure that the San Siro is packed and buzzing which should give the home team a boost. There is plenty of talent in this Inter Milan side the manager will hope that the occasion will lift the forms of the superstar players like Nainggolan and Miranda.

While Inter Milan have been in bad form, I think the occasion will raise the team spirits. Tottenham have not done well recently either so this seems like the perfect occasion for Inter Milan to get a win. With a packed San Siro, I see Inter Milan win this match for their fans.
