The two clubs memorably met in the group stage of the 2010-11 Champions League. Inter Milan won at home 4-3 having gone four goals up, but had their thunder stolen after Gareth Bale's pride-saving hat trick. In the return game, Tottenham won 3-1, with Bale again the standout performer.
In case you had not noticed, the Welshman is still plying his trade in North London these days. The makeup of the team around him has changed somewhat, though not as dramatically as it has at the Nerazzurri.
Few remain from the squad that took on Spurs just over two years ago. The group that won the treble the season before has been dismantled, as club president Massimo Moratti has embarked on a rebuilding process not centered around throwing huge sums at star names.
Inter are not the force they were, and they are currently in a tough race to finish third in Serie A with city rivals AC Milan. However, the capital club still possess considerable talent Tottenham should be wary of.
