TOTTENHAM takes on Inter Milan as they try to keep their small chances to stay in the Champions League.
Spurs trailed three points behind the Italians after their last victory over PSV.
But their path to the knock-out stages is further complicated by a direct link used by Uefa to sort groups instead of target balance.
What does Tottenham have to do against Inter to stay in the Champions League?
Simply put, the side of Mauricio Pochettino has to win.
Mauro Icardi and Matias Vecino's latest pinpoint goals condemned Spurs to a 2-1 defeat at the San Siro and even signify a draw that they will fall against each other.
The use of head-to-head effectively means that the match at Wembley has the format of a second stage of a knock-out phase.
If Spurs wins 1-0 or with two goals, they & # 39; goals & # 39; & # 39; win & # 39; and then continue with a victory in Barcelona on matchday six.
A 2-1 victory would mean that Spurs and Inter would drop to a goal difference, meaning Tottenham would have to go to Barcelona and equalize the score that Inter won at PSV.
Has Barcelona qualified?
Although both Spurs and Inter can equal the ten points of Barca, the Catalans have already qualified on the basis of the mutual record.
Lionel Messi and co have collected seven points in matches against Spurs and Inter, and the best that Tottenham can achieve in those matches is six.
But Barca can still influence the question whether Spurs or Inter continue with them.
Should Spurs beat Inter 3-2 (effectively lose out of goals), they need Barcelona to lose at PSV to keep their fate in their own hands.
And if, as expected, Barcelona would collect points in the Netherlands, Spurs would have to win at the Nou Camp and hope that Inter points would fall at home for PSV.
