What Spurs have to do to qualify for the Champions League knock outs

Tottenham Hotspur kept their Champions League dreams alive last night after beating Inter Milan 1-0 at Wembley.

It was a tough and patient affair for Pochettino’s side, but they remained calm and took their key chance when it came.

Deep into the second half, with Sonny and Eriksen both subbed on, Tottenham finally made Inter pay.

Moussa Sissoko drove forward powerfully with the ball, creating space for Dele Alli, who he pulled it back to.

Dele span wonderfully on the ball before popping it into the path of Eriksen, who swept it home with his left-foot.

This win put Spurs on level points with the Italian side, but ahead on head to head via away goals.

It will now all come down to the final game of the group, with Spurs away to Barca, and Inter Milan taking on PSV.

PSV are already nailed on for bottom of the group, so Inter will likely walk this game.

Seeing as Spurs must at least match any number of points Milan get, they will likely need to win away to Barca too.

Barcelona have already qualified top of the group, so may choose to field a weakened team against Tottenham in order to concentrate on the tight Spanish League.

A win would take Spurs through to the knockouts in second place.
