Europa League continues with Inter Milan v Spurs, Bordeaux v Benfica, Chelsea v Steaua Bucharest as Bet365 release the latest odds and live streaming on all the action from across Europe tonight.
Tottenham Hotspur head to the San Siro this evening in the Europa League round of 16 second leg to take on Inter Milan and it is safe to say they are very much in the driving seat after a stunning performance at White Hart Lane last week saw them win 3-0.
Now, Andre Villas-Boas knows his men have one foot in the quarter-finals of the tournament, but he can’t allow for any complacency as Inter are a team capable of turning this tie around if Spurs are not at the races.

Many were expecting a tough fixture for the North Londoners last week but it proved to be anything but and in truth, they could have had five or six goals. The Premier League outfit are now the big 1/33 favourites to qualify and are good value to win on the night here at 9/4.
It was a case of Spurs being brilliant and Inter looking all over the place last time out and if the visitors grab themselves an early goal in Milan on Thursday night, then the home side would have to score five in order to progress and it is tough to see that happening.
One blow for Villas-Boas is that he is without Gareth Bale, but with so many important fixtures coming up, this game could be the best time for him to be suspended.
If Tottenham can focus on their job and experienced players such as Scott Parker and Michael Dawson organise the team, they will sail into the final eight of this tournament.
Their unbeaten run was ended by Liverpool in the Premier League last time out and this could be the ideal game to reinstall the confidence in the squad. Despite Inter being poor in the first leg, wins at the San Siro don’t come easily, so a victory would do wonders for the team.
The Italian outfit would have been fuming with their performance at White Hart Lane and now they need to produce one of the best European comebacks in order to qualify. They are out at 16/1 to reach the next round.
One thing they might look at is their bitter rivals AC Milan letting a 2-0 lead slip against Barcelona and losing 4-0 in the Nou Camp on Tuesday night. Inter would have watched the game and it might have given them the belief they can turn this one around.
Andrea Stramaccioni was outthought by Villas-Boas last time out and he wouldn’t have liked that at all. It would be easy for him to send his side out and go gung-ho right from the off, but they could then leave themselves exposed, so the manager has to think of a plan to beat Tottenham by at least three goals. He has to be clever.
If Inter get on the score-sheet early-on, we could be in for a thrilling encounter here and despite how well Tottenham have played in recent weeks, they will start to get nervous.
It should be a very interesting one to watch and it all gets underway from 6.00 PM this evening.
