Key battles: Inter Milan v Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham hold a 3-0 lead over Inter Milan after their fine victory in last week's Europa League third round first-leg at White Hart Lane.

Take a look at the players who are likely to decide the outcome of tomorrow's second leg in the San Siro:

JERMAIN DEFOE v CRISTIAN CHIVU

With Gareth Bale out injured, and question marks remaining over the fitness of Emmanuel Adebayor, the pressure will fall on the shoulders of Defoe to score a killer away goal tomorrow. The England striker has looked lively since he returned from an ankle injury, and he will take comfort from the way Chivu failed to shackle Bale and Adebayor in the first leg.

MOUSA DEMBELE v ESTEBAN CAMBIASSO

Dembele scored a peach of a strike in Lyon to send Tottenham through to the last 16, and his form has picked up ever since. A dangerous dribbler who is always on the look out for a killer pass, 32-year-old Cambiasso will need to draw on all his experience to shackle the Belgian.

WILLIAM GALLAS v ANTONIO CASSANO

Dropped for Saturday's defeat against Bologna, Cassano is expected to return to the starting XI as Inter need their talisman back among the goals if they are to progress. Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas has relied upon Gallas for most of his team's Europa League run, but at 35-years-old he remains vulnerable to a burst of pace.
