Andre Villas-Boas wants Tottenham Hotspur to stay solid and not concede at home against Inter Milan.

Andre Villas-Boas has urged his Tottenham Hotspur side to keep a clean sheet in the home leg of the Europa League last-16 tie against Inter Milan.

Villas-Boas said that conceding at home against Lyon in the last round made qualification difficult and wants to avoid the same scenario this time around.

"We don't want to concede a goal," he told the club's official website. "We were unlucky to concede against Lyon at home but it was a goal that put questions into the second leg.

"We want avoid that happening, so we need to be consistent and try to be as good as we have been recently in attack to take an advantage into the second leg.

"Inter are very smart, very experienced and nothing will be decided in this first leg, for sure."

Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni has admitted that his side will be wary of the threat of Gareth Bale.
