In London ended the group stage match between Tottenham and inter.
Tottenham produced a home victory at the legendary Wembley stadium over inter in the match of the fifth round of the group stage of the Champions League.
The home team, as expected, started the game more actively. This is not surprising, because the British needed a victory. “Black and blue” in turn”, played the second number, waiting for his chance to counterattack.
However, the first half was rich in dangerous moments. I remember only two episodes, the first of which was Lucas, but the Brazilian after a good combination, “spurs” has shot straight into the hands Handanovich, and the second – Winks, when the pupil of Tottenham hit from outside the penalty area over the crossbar.
The second half saw a similar scenario – they attacked more, but inter, on the contrary, defended.
The first goal the fans had to wait 80 minutes. The next onslaught of wards Pocettino ended exact impact of the substitute Eriksen. The Dane received a perfect pass from Allie after which he had only not to miss what he is and managed. As it turned out – it was the only goal in the match.
Thus, Tottenham earned a vital three points that kept the chances to qualify from the group and the opportunity to play in the Champions League in the spring. After five games, “spurs” with inter the same number of points – seven. But the Italians settled lower as the worst indicator of personal meetings.
In the final round Tottenham will play against unmotivated Barcelona, who have already guaranteed first place in group, and inter will take PSV.
