Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham have won both of their previous home matches against Inter, 3-1 in the 2010-11 Champions League, and 3-0 in the 2012-13 Europa League.

Inter have never kept a clean sheet in their five previous meetings with Spurs in all comps, though they’ve only failed to score once (W3 D0 L2).

The home side has won all five previous meetings between Tottenham and Inter Milan (2 for Tottenham, 3 for Inter).

Heung-min Son has played more Champions League games than any other Tottenham player (17). He’s not scored in his last four games in the competition – he’s never gone five in a row without a goal for Spurs.

This will be Inter Milan’s first competitive match at Wembley Stadium. Italian sides have won four of their five visits to the ground (Milan v Benfica 1963 European Cup final, Parma v Royal Antwerp 1993 Cup Winners’ Cup final, Fiorentina v Arsenal 1999-00 Champions League and Juventus v Spurs 2017-18 Champions League).

Defeat for Tottenham will see them eliminated from the Champions League. They’ve lost two of their last three home games in the competition.

Six of Tottenham’s seven Champions League goals this season have been scored in the second half of games.

Three of Inter’s five Champions League goals this season have been scored in the 85th minute or later, including both against Tottenham on matchday one.

If Inter avoid defeat they’ll be in the knockout stages of the Champions League. They’ve only gone out at the group stages in one of their previous 11 campaigns in the competition (2003-04).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored 13 goals and assisted a further two in his 14 Champions
League appearances. He’s scored 26% of Tottenham’s total goals in the competition (13/50).

Inter’s Mauro Icardi has scored in five of his last six matches in European competition (5 goals in total), including in three of his four Champions League matches.
