Being an Inter fan last Thursday was certainly a real torture when watching Gareth Bale and Tottenham crushing the great team from Milan. Actually 3-0 was the lowest score, which Inter players couldget, so superior were the English players in all parts of the game. Villas-Boas’ players were much faster, more technical and creative than their Italian opponents.
Could the Spurs play so strongly two matches in a row? That is the big question before this meeting and personally I think the answer would be a huge no. Tottenham is the master of being unable to hold a higher form in successive matches. The team showed it in their last Premier League match against Liverpool, which lost with 3-2 and so kept the chance of its pursuers for the Champions League places alive.
Another important part of this betting prediction is the fact that Inter players are very experienced and names like Javier Zanetti and Esteban Cambiasso know exactly what to do to use the slightest sign of relaxation in the team of Tottenham.
If there is something positive for the Italians after the first match, it was that they kept their winning spirit and warned everybody not to write them off before the final whistle. It’s really hard to believe you can win after 0:3, but that’s an asset which only the best teams in the world have and Inter is exactly one of them.
That’s why my preference goes for the home team tonight. I am fully aware that their chances to move forward are really tiny, but so are the chances for Tottenham to win both games. That is why a bet for a win for Inter with DNB which seems to me quite reasonable. Moreover, when it comes to the factor of 1.625 given by the betting houses.
This will be my bet for today. However, if the match is still equal to the middle of the second half, I can sacrifice my potential profit and ensure with a live bet for a win for Tottenham.
