At the Philips Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands, the match has kick-off scheduled for 13:55 (GMT) as part of the group B’s third round schedule, the last of the first round.
Although they share the flashlight of a key that has Barcelona and Internazionale in the tip with six points earned, the situation is not irreversible. That’s because if the Catalan team confirms their favoritism in their two matches against the Italians, it will open the opportunity for those who do better in the Dutch-British kills to challenge the Milan team in the final rounds in the fight for the the group’s second place in the round of 16. Even in the most pessimistic line of reasoning, the duel is at least the third place and the classification for the Europa League in the second half of the season.

The game was for the ninth round of the Dutch Championship and retained the perfect campaign of the Eindhoven team, which reached the 27 points possible and leads the Eredivisie with five points clear in comparison with Ajax, placed second.
It also has the best attack (36 goals scored, exact average of four per game) and the least leak defense (three goals conceded) of the tournament. It also opened its way to the Dutch Cup. He thrashed Excelsior Maassluis 4-0 and will have Waalwijk as their rival in Eindhoven in the next stage. The game was scheduled for October 30.
In this way, UCL (UEFA Champions League) ends up being an exception in its beginning of season. In fact, just a game. The 3-0 defeat to Barcelona in their debut was expected. What surprised them was the turn of 2 to 1, that the team took, in Eindhoven, of Internazionale, in the second round.
To try to recover, coach Mark van Bommel has all his main players at his disposal to face Tottenham. The only medical casualties for the duel are of casting athletes. The midfielder Ryan Thomas (still without performances in the 2018/2019 season of the Dutch Championship) and striker Maximiliano Romero (a game, no goal) are in the infirmary.
After receiving and refusing the invitation to coach Argentina, coach Mauricio Pochettino has shown he is committed to further developing long-term work at Tottenham. On Saturday, October 20, he picked up three more points. As a visitor, he defeated West Ham 1-0 to keep the team chasing the leaders of the English Premier League standings.
With 21 points (seven wins and two defeats), Tottenham are two points behind Manchester City and Liverpool, who split the point, although the blues come in first when tie-break criteria are used.
Of breaking, still had good news. The club’s top-haters, who had vetoed any hiring spending in the middle of the year due to spending on the construction of the new stadium, are willing to review that position and release money to buy athletes in the European winter window. The first name to be speculated was the Brazilian Malcon, who moved from Bordeaux to Barcelona, but is not having space in the Spanish club.
Pochettino does not have many offensive options in the cast. For Wednesday’s duel, his limitations have also advanced to other sectors due to injuries. Defenders Danny Rose (six matches in English Premier League season 2018/2019, no goal) and Jan Vertonghen (seven games, one goal) are handed over to the medical department; and the socks Dele Ali (five games, one goal) and Victor Wanyama (three games, no goal).
