  • A stunningly one-sided game ends 3-0, but it could have been more such was Spurs' dominance at White Hart Lane. It was a bad, bad day at the office for Inter, who will need to improve drastically to bag three home goals at the San Siro in the return leg. Thanks for your messages tonight and I'll see you all soon.

  • FT: Tottenham 3 Inter Milan 0.

  • Jonathan looks to meet Guarin's ball out wide, but sets off too early, is caught offside, and that's probably the last Inter chance of the game.

  • Defoe twists and turns to create a yard for himself, but a magnificent sliding interception from Ranocchia denies the ball finding the target.

  • Three minutes of added time to be played.

  • Guarin concedes the battle with Parker and Spurs advance with Holtby, calmly controlling the ball in and around Inter's penalty area.

  • A crucial interception is made by Vertonghen, who gets his head on Gargano's chip into Palacio which would have set the Inter striker away.

  • Holtby takes a tumble, but Naughton keeps his good work going until Gargano claims the loose ball, with Cassano's delivery into Palacio resulting in a goal-kick.

  • Parker runs out of room during a surging run into the penalty box, with Ranocchia pushing up to make a timely tackle.

  • Lennon makes way, with Naughton coming on to take the lively winger's pace.

  • A chance for Holtby this time, whose deflected effort on the edge of the box bounces out of Handanovic's hands, before the keeper claims the spillage to make amends.

  • Defoe battles with Ranocchia, before winning a throw-in down the right, as Spurs push for a fourth, knowing that conceding a late away goal could yet prove a blow heading into the second leg.

  • Lennon's boot seems to have taken some damage in that tackle, and we can only hope that it is ok to continue the match.

  • Pereira picks up a booking after a late sliding challenge on Lennon.

  • Bale edges forward, before holding the ball up as Spurs slow down the pace of the game just as Inter looked to be gaining some momentum.

  • Friedel is finally required to make a save after a clever Inter free-kick that sees the American palm away Palacio's effort.

  • Zanetti wins a free-kick under pressure from Holtby, but as Ranocchia looks for Guarin, his ball rolls straight to Friedel.

  • A rare touch for Gallas sees Guarin intercept from Parker, but as he goes down under Gallas, he is booked for a dive.

  • Holtby takes to the field, with Sigurdsson's sensational shift brought to an end.

  • Handanovic keeps Inter in the tie for the time being, diving out to superbly deny Lennon after skipping past Chivu far too easily.
