Champions League betting – Spurs vs Inter Milan
Spurs vs Inter Milan betting preview, odds and tips
Tottenham’s first half collapse in their last Champions League game cost them dear as they went down 4-3 to Inter at Giuseppe Mezza. But despite the defeat Spurs still stand at 2nd in the table with a good chance of qualifying for the knockout stage. With a win and a draw before the defeat under their belts in Europe this season you can’t help but feel Redknapp’s men have every chance of getting a result, which is reflected in the odds with Tottenham best priced at 17/10 on Paddy Power. Unfortunately, their injury problems continue which will have an effect on their chances with several players already on the sidelines. Rafael Van Der Vaart is now a doubt after limping off in the weekends defeat at Manchester United with a hamstring complaint.
Reigning champions Inter go into the clash with Spurs top of the group and looking to put one foot into the knockout stages. Although it has been a summer of change for the Italian giants, with Jose Mourinho going to Real Madrid and Rafael Benitez coming in, the squad that won the unprecedented treble last season remains in tact. With Samuel Eto’o in red hot form this season after 15 goals in 13 appearances in all competitions, there is no wonder he is favourite to open the scoring and is best priced at 13/2 with StanJames. Unfortunately Inter travel to England with injury concerns over Esteban Cambiasso and goalkeeper Julio Cesar, while Dejan Stankovic and Thiago Motta will definitely miss out.
With not much separating the two teams on the market the draw at 12/5 with Sky Bet represents the best value for money. As Inter will come to White Hart Lane looking to keep it tight and Tottenham will not be wanting to have to come from behind again. The correct score of 1-1 looks a good bet at 6/1 with William Hill for those looking for more of a return on their money. While if you think Gareth Bale can come back to haunt Inter again then odds of 12/1 on him being the last scorer are very good at Stan James.
