Tottenham Hotspur take on Inter Milan in a must win Champions League game at Wembley tomorrow night.

Spurs took only a point from their first three matches of the campaign, despite leading both Inter and PSV, as well as running Barca close.

This means that Poch’s men now need to win by at least two goals tomorrow night to ensure their head-to-head record against Milan is superior.

They will then need to grab three points away to Barcelona to likely qualify second in the group and keep their dreams alive.

However, it is unclear how full Wembley will be tomorrow evening, for a variety of reasons.

The fact that Spurs’ qualification chances are low may put some people off attending, paired up with it being a cold midweek fixture.

There is also a sense that Tottenham fans are just a bit fed up with Wembley after a year and a half of waiting for the new stadium.

SkySports report Poch said:  “We hope the stadium [Wembley] will be full but if it is not, I will not say anything.

“Our fans have been fantastic over the last year and a half. We understand their frustration and disappointment. They expected to be in the new stadium today.

“When Wembley has 50 or 60,000 it seems empty. I am happy with the fans although they cannot be happy with me every single game but I understand this is football.

“I will always have the fans in my heart. They translate a massive energy onto the pitch for us.”
