Inter Rally Back To Sink Spurs In UCL

UEFA Champions League

Result: Inter Milan 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Date: 18 September 2018

Venue: San Siro

Inter Milan marked their return to UEFA Champions League football with a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening.

The North London outfit came into the clash without the services of defensive duo Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld, while Kwadwo Asamoah, Miranda, Matias Vecino, Matteo Politano and Mauro Icardi  returned to the line up for Inter.

The Serie A giants enjoyed most of the possession in the early stages and looked threatening down the flanks, but they were unable to carve out a serious opening in the opening 20 minutes.

After a spell in the half, Harry Kane squandered a big chance to put Spurs ahead in the 37th minute after meeting a cross from Christian Eriksen, firing wide with only Samir Handanovic to beat.

That proved to be the final chance of the half as the sides went into the break goalless.

However, Spurs got the breakthrough goal in the 53rd minute with a low curling effort into the bottom corner which Handanovic struggled to get a hand on.

The hosts opted for a change on 74 minutes as Senegal international Keita Balde was introduced for Matteo Politano, while Spurs threw on Lucas Moura.

Inter's perseverance was eventually rewarded in the 85th minute as Mauro Icardi restored parity with an impressive volley into the bottom corner.

The comeback was complete in the second minute of time added on as Matias Vecino sent a header past Michel Vorm after some good work by Stefan de Vrij.
