Harry Redknapp insists Tottenham must take something from their upcoming Champions League double-header against Internazionale if they are to keep alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stage.

Spurs have made a fine start by taking four points from their opening two games to lie joint top of Group A alongside Inter.

"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]," Redknapp said. "But it's still going to be tough. 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.

"If we don't have a good spell, Inter could be through and then the last couple of games, they go and put reserve teams out because they've already qualified."
