Can Inter’s defenders stop Harry Kane?This year Inter has a good defence, one of the best in Italy. But Kane is a champion and to stop him you have to kill him, or at least not let him on the ball. Probably the first option is easier!Apart from Kane, are there any other players you think are able to pose Inter problems?Yes, there are a lot of great players. I think it will be hard to stop Christian Eriksen. If any game is going to kick-start his campaign once again, a European night under the lights at the San Siro has that potential.He will most certainly be licking his lips at the prospect of another bright start to a European campaign, with Tottenham fans desperate to progress beyond the last-16 after last year’s disappointments.Lord knows his team need him now more than ever or it could be one tricky season for the Lilywhites.Follow @TalkingTHFC here 8 8 The San Siro is no easy place to go, even more so with Spurs stuck in a rut.Questions have been asked of star man Harry Kane as of late, with the Englishman struggling for form and in desperate need of a rest. He was caught in a catch-22 during the international break, with his duties as England captain overriding his need for a break.Many forget the Spurs striker endured a similar spell last year. It was not until Spurs’ trip to Goodison Park in early September that Kane netted his first club goals of this season, quickly followed by a double against Dortmund in their opening Champions League group clash a few days later.However, tonight does present an opportunity for the striker to make history, something he appears to do almost weekly since breaking through at White Hart Lane.If he scores against Inter tonight, he could become one of the fastest players ever to score 10 Champions League goals, alongside the likes of the legendary Adriano.Kane is extremely motivated, and it’ll be bothering him just as much as it is Spurs fans that he’s not firing on all cylinders. He relishes playing on the big stage, delivering away at Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus last season. 8 Icardi top scored in Serie A last season with 29 goals Nainggolan’s all round play is going to be difficult for Tottenham to contain center_img So what do supporters in Milan think about the game? Here, Inter fan Ignazio Cordella gives us the view from San Siro…What can Tottenham and the team’s supporters expect at the game?They must pay attention to the San Siro stadium and its atmosphere. This atmosphere has been missing for too long. Being an Inter fans mean suffering, being an Inter fans means watching the match until the 90th minute – it does not matter if you are winning or losing, anything can happen. Against Tottenham there will be suffering and cheering until the end.How much trouble will Mauro Icardi pose and is there any real way to stop him?If the right ball arrives in the penalty area, Icardi will score. To stop him, just don’t allow the ball near the goal. 8 Has Radja Nainggolan fitted in to the team and how will he cause problems for Tottenham?He has and it’s because Radja Nainggolan is a champion and when one is a champion, joining any team is easy. Nainggolan has an incredible shot from long distance and he moves across the field, so it’s very difficult to understand his game for the opposing teams. 8 8 8 Does Gareth Bale still give you nightmares?Sure, it was incredible what Bale did in San Siro eight years ago. Every Inter supporter remembers that night.If you could have one Tottenham player in your team, who would you chose?Harry Kane because at least then he cannot play against Inter.

This time around, Barcelona, PSV and Inter stand in the way of last-16 qualification.Perhaps the most intriguing of all the group stage ties is the one that kicks off this evening, an away trip to face old foes Inter; a clash that was kicked into life back in 2010.There have been a staggering 19 goals scored in the four previous meetings between the Nerazzurri and Tottenham, with the Italian side netting nine times, compared to Spurs’ 10.The most recent meeting between the two clubs came in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League season; with the North Londoners winning on away goals after the two ties ended 4-4 on aggregate.Furthermore, tonight’s game will be the fifth meeting in European competition between Inter and Spurs since 2010, with the pair evenly matched winning two each of the previous four.Needless to say, what was once just a mere European group stage game has become so much more in a very short space of time, no thanks to a certain Welshman. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will have his work cut out in Milan If Kane scores against Inter, he would become one of the fastest players ever to score 10 Champions League goals last_img
