'It's so painful' - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reveals his Champions League agony

'It's so painful' - Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino reveals his Champions League agony

Tottenham Hotspur face one of the pivotal matches in their season on Wednesday evening when they host Italian giants Inter Milan at Wembley Stadium, but the match will come too soon for two key men, according to the Spurs official website.

Those results mean that Spurs approach Sunday's clash in optimistic mood and ahead of the much-anticipated clash on Sunday, Alderweireld has claimed that the north London derby is the biggest in world football. But one thing we have is belief and faith that we can win.

"What Barcelona do is not in our hands".

For Spurs to take their Champions League hopes to the final game is an impressive achievement after a terrible start to their Group B campaign, where they had just a point at the halfway stage.

"But, of course, in the Champions League, no one is going to give a present and play and not care about the result".

'It is going to be a very hard game going away to Barcelona, probably one of the most in-form teams in Europe right now.

'When you are injured you realise how blessed you are when you are fit and I prefer it this way than to be sitting on the touchline for a couple of weeks, ' he said. I expect they'll play with the best players but today I don't know how they'll prepare the game.

Deutsche Bank employees had devised strategies to get around the sanctions and carry out transactions worth roughly $10.9 billion. The bank has publicly admitted it needs to do more to improve its processes record after months of negative attention.

On his side's chances of progression, which is also highly likely to require a win in Barcelona next month, he added: "It is going to give us hope or give us a different reality that we can not fight to get through".

"As long as we do our job I think we will go through".

"Everything is fine with Radja and there was no issue between us at the time of his substitution", said Spalletti.

"It's going to be very competitive but of course they're qualified in first with 13 points".

The hard work in the lead-up to the goal was done by Moussa Sissoko, driving down the right flank and cutting past Inter players before squaring to Dele Alli.

"They are going to get nearer towards Tottenham and if they can keep their eye on Tottenham and finish above them, then they will finish in the top four", Sherwood said on The Debate. If you look at the fixtures, we are going to play 12 games in 40 days.
