But other meetings were held in four corners of the old continent. In London, Tottenham (third, 4 points) welcomed Inter Milan (2nd place, 7 points) for a nearly decisive shock in group B. The English had the absolute superiority of hoping to stay alive while the draw was enough for the Italians to qualify for FC Barcelona. To achieve this goal, Mauricio Pochettino, deprived of Trippier or Dembélé, decided 4-2-3-1 with Harry Kan at the top. Eleven, where we met French Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko.

Tottenham provides basic information
After Harry Kane, whose center on the remote station was far from the trick of Handanovic (7th), Lucas spoke of his speed before he was put in the box. The Referee thought it was not a mistake (8th). In the eleventh year, Kane fought between several players before commanding Dele Alli, who did not want him. Despite the occasions, the Londoners were not dangerous. First to be angry with the aggressiveness of the Spurs, Nerazzurri made many mistakes before taking the lead on Icardi's instigation (a defeat at Alderweireld in 28th place). However, Tottenham did not leave. In the 30th place, Moussa Sissoko started the counter-attacks in front of the right-hand side before focusing on Dele Alli in the Axis. The Englishman left the ball for Lucas. But the Brazilian shot from the right. A moment later, Winks, served by Lucas in the center, sent a strong accurate kick from the right. Defeated, Handanovich was rescued by his cross (38th).
In the front, Milanese could also open scoring. When he entered the 43nd place to replace the injured Nainggolan, Valero, alone in the middle of the boxing, inherited the ball. However, the Spaniard lost too much and was taken back by an opponent. Both teams returned to the cloakroom on this score (0-0). After a break, Inter Milan was attacked. After a good collective action action started by Valer, Vecino, who was chosen during the selection, did not hit the shot (48th). On the other hand, the English also gave intensity and harmed the defense of the transalpine with Lucas (52), Dele Alli (67) or Vertonghen (70). Under pressure, the Lombards were well-disciplined, who played shots in front of Perisic, whose strong shot in the area forced Lloris to flee parry. The turn of the match since Sissoko drove the Italian defense before finding Eriksen came into play a little earlier. Taxes adjusted Handanovich flat legs (1-0, 80). After the new show of Lloris against D & B Ambrosio (84), the score did not move. Tottenham wins 1: 0. The success that allowed the English to return to the height of Inter Milan. Everything will play the last day for both teams (every 7 points). Spurs will go to Barcelona, while Inter will receive PSV.
Naples does a good job

On this occasion, Ernesto Valverde had to set up without several injured players, including Suarez, Umtiti or Sergi Roberto. The Spanish technician bet on 4-3-3 with the Coutinho-Messi-Dembéle trio. Both teams quickly improved. In the 16th, De Jong joined the control shot from the left before he hit the terrestrial post. Coutinho (19th), Vidal (35th) or Messi (42th), on the other hand, replied. But in the '45s, De Jong was angry at Terbor. Bergwijn followed well, but the German goalkeeper saved the ball on his line (0-0). The second period began again at the same pace.

But they had to deal with the surprising Serbian team who captured the draw in the first leg (0-0). However, Napoli opened the scoring in the 11th minute. After a corner kick by Mertens, Hamsik threw his skin into the net (1-0, 11). Obviously above, the men Carlo Ancelotti dominated despite the great opportunity for a red star with Simic in one against Ospina. But in the 34's Mertens doubled his right leg (2-0).
