UEFA officials are not necessarily pleased with the conditions of the turf at Wembley Stadium in London.

Officials looked over the pitch ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash between Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to reports, officials were not pleased with the “worn out” conditions of the pitch, especially since there have been seven matches played on the field in the last four weeks, including an NFL game, two international contests and a home match for Spurs.

Officials said the pitch is littered with bumps and mud patches but agreed that the condition was good enough for a match.

Inter and Tottenham are vying for the second spot out of Group B as Barcelona has all but wrapped up the top spot out of the group. Inter currently sit three points ahead of Spurs in second and a win would see the Nerazzurri through to the next round. A tie would mean Spurs would have to beat Barcelona but Inter would be ahead of Tottenham on head-to-head matchup.
