Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham have the belief and faith to win in Barcelona

  • Pochettino believes Spurs can win at the Camp Nou to progress from Group B

Foyth's ineligibility for Wednesday's must-win match against Inter Milan is particularly frustrating for Pochettino given the young centre-back has started the last three Premier League games, although Jan Vertonghen is ready to return after recovering from a hamstring injury.

And this latest act of European escapology means second placed Tottenham are now level on points with third placed Inter.

"So this game will be a good measure of how far they have come - they played some big teams earlier in the season and fell short".

"The playability of the Champions League match, Tottenham-Inter, is not compromised", a spokesperson told Reuters.

"The form we're in right now, it's probably the ideal time to go there", he said."It's a game the fans want to win and one we want to win".

Alli has scored twice for Tottenham in the Premier League this season, including in their 3-1 victory over London rivals Chelsea in the Premier Leauge at the weekend, but is yet to make his mark in Europe. It will be so tough but we have...

Pochettino's side will go out if they fail to beat the Italian side at Wembley.

"What Barcelona do is not in our hands".

Barcelona could rest some of their most influential players against Tottenham next month, given they have already topped the group, but Pochettino said: "I don't know [what they'll do]".

"I think we can beat everyone if we're on it".

Pochettino said: "I'm so disappointed from the beginning because it's not only him but Georges-Kevin N'Koudou and Vincent Janssen are out of the squad in the Champions League and that's so painful".

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

Because Spurs are ahead on head to head record, they need only to match Inter's outcome in the final round of games.

"Everybody who follows football knows how big this game is", Alderweireld said. "The most important thing is to try to avoid risk, mix the team with different players and rotate so all players feel important".
