|Date & Time||Wednesday November 28, 2018, 2:45 PM (EST)|
The Line: Tottenham -120 / Draw +260 / Inter Milan +320 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Tottenham will host Inter Milan at White Hart Lane in a UEFA Champions League group stage match.
Tottenham are struggling in this competition as they are third in the group and must win both of their remaining matches to qualify. This is a tough task for any side considering Tottenham will have to face FC Barcelona following this fixture. It has been a poor Champions League campaign for Tottenham as they have only won 1 match while failing to beat the likes of PSV. Considering the pressure of the situation, this will be a very tough match for Tottenham.
On the other side of the coin, Inter Milan are only 1 win away from securing a spot in the round of 16. Inter Milan have had a good tournament as they have won 2 games while also managing a draw against FC Barcelona in their previous fixture. During the draw against FC Barcelona, Inter Milan impressed with their defense as they limited the likes of Coutinho and Suarez to scoring only 1 goal. Icardi has led this Inter Milan side well and the Argentine striker will look to threaten the Tottenham defense in this match.
The last time these two teams met was earlier in the group stage where Inter Milan beat Tottenham 2-1. The match was played at the San Siro with Inter Milan scoring two late goals to ensure victory. Since that win, Tottenham have struggled in the Champions League while Inter Milan have soared.
It is hard to see Tottenham qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League considering their current situation. This will be a tough match for both teams which I am expecting to end as a draw. Inter Milan will be satisfied with a draw and I am expecting Miranda to lead his defense to ensure Tottenham struggle to score. Expect a determined Tottenham side who will struggle to score against an exceptional Inter Milan defense. I see both teams sharing the points.
