Harry Redknapp insists Tottenham must take something from their upcoming Champions League double-header against Inter Milan if they are to keep alive their dream of reaching the knockout stage.
Spurs have made a fine start to life among the elite of European football by taking four points from their opening two games to lie joint top of Group A alongside Inter.
But manager Redknapp fears failing to add to that total in their mouthwatering clashes with the reigning champions on October 20 and November 2 will ultimately prove fatal.
He told Spurs TV Online: "We've had a good start, we've played well in Germany (against Werder Bremen) and we had a great win last week (over FC Twente).
"But it's still going to be tough. That group is so tight. You've got two games now with Inter Milan; you've got to get some points from those games, because the other teams are going to pick up points now."
