Match start: 17:55 (GMT+1)
Tournament: EUROPA – Champions League – group stage – 1st round.
The Italian club was actively working on strengthening of its squad before the start in the Champions League and Inter now really seems to be perspective and competitive. The problem of Milan club is its teamwork and interaction of players on the football field which is far from an ideal. We are glad, that such experienced and successful Italian coach as Luciano Spalletti who always achieves high goals with the teams is the head coach of this team. Also Inter demonstrates some progress with Spalletti but for the fight for the champion’s title and for the fights with the teams of the level of Barcelona the Italian team is still weak.
Inter has suffered two silly defeats from not the strongest rivals – Sassuolo (0:1), Parma (0:1) in frames of the Championship of Italy. As a result, the team takes only the 8th place in standings and has seriously cut off the prospects to fight for a champion title. Stability is the thing that modern Intern is lacking of and for Milan team this factor can become a cornerstone in this season.
The Spurs have got into difficult group from which Tottenham should make the way with fight into the playoffs stage of the Champions League. Recently, Tottenham is one of the most stable teams of Europe and the club from London is very proud of this stability. The coach of the team is Maurizio Pocettino and he is considered to be the chief builder of progress and success of Tottenham. The coach has ambitious football players.
Tottenham has lost two last matches in the EPL, thereby having fallen from the leading positions in standings on the sixth place. It is interesting, but in the current season Tottenham hasn’t experienced any changes in the squad and the English club hasn’t bought any player. The bet is made on checked fighters and stability which has to bring serious result.
