Benitez won’t risk Pandev against Tottenham

Inter Coach Rafa Benitez is unlikely to start Goran Pandev against Tottenham when the two teams face-off later tonight. The Macedonian who was injured in training a few weeks ago was included in the squad of 21 by Benitez but will probably start on the bench.
Inter are now likely to deploy the same starting XI that they used against Cagliari with youngsters Jonathan Biabiany and Philippe Coutinho supporting star striker Samuel Eto’o on the flanks. The Nerazzurri are currently short of options upfront as Diego Milito is also sidelined with a thigh strain.
There is good news on the injury front otherwise though with both Ivan Cordoba and Esteban Cambiasso being passed fit to participate in the tie. Tottenham have a few concerns of their own though as first choice center-backs Ledley King and Michael Dawson are on the treatment table and Dutch midfielder Rafael Van Der Vaart is suspended for this game.
