Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes is confident his side will be able to beat Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League next week.
The holders, managed by former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, beat Spurs 4-3 at the Giuseppe Meazza last Wednesday and head to White Hart Lane for the return fixture on top of Group A.
Harry Redknapp's men were blown away in the opening half-hour, with their woes compounded when Gomes was shown the red card in just the eighth minute.
But despite trailing 4-0 at the break, Spurs produced an outstanding second-half fightback, with Gareth Bale's stunning late hat-trick bringing respectability to the scoreline.
And Gomes, who will be suspended for the clash, believes Spurs can gain their revenge on home soil.
"Being sent off after eight minutes, it is difficult to play against Inter away from home with 10 men but I thought we did very well. We did a good job," Gomes told Sky Sports News.
"We have a great chance to beat them. I hope we can do a job against them.
"We start 11 v 11 and that's the best thing to think about.
"We have to keep going because we have a great team and a great squad and we can beat them at home."
One of the biggest tests for Spurs this season will be how their Premier League form is affected by their European exploits.
And a stern reminder of how tough it will be to go at full throttle on both fronts was the testing visit of Everton last Saturday followed by a trip to Manchester United next weekend sandwiched in between the two Inter ties.
Gomes is in no doubt about the size of the challenge and added: "For me personally, the other players and the manager this is a big moment for us.
"We need to take it game by game to continue the job.
"It's difficult to play a hard game in both competitions every week but we need to try and do the best we can."
