If you are truly looking to announce yourself on the world stage, Inter vs Tottenham Hotspur isn't a bad game to do it in.
In 2010, Gareth Bale etched himself into the minds and memories of fans everywhere after eviscerating Maicon at the San Siro as he scored a hat-trick what turned out to be a 4-3 loss for his Tottenham side.
In Harry Kane and Mauro Icardi both teams have players who regardless of what happens on Tuesday when they go head-to-head are already considered stars.
Neither are normally mentioned in the same sentence unless reading half-baked transfer rumours about Real Madrid's striker targets. Nevertheless, they share many commonalities.
Both are 25-years-old, strong, deceptively skilled strikers with an eye for goal and indispensable to their respective sides.
Yet neither have anything to show for that mountain of goals in terms of silverware or team success. How important that is in the discussion about world class players, the jury is still in deliberation on that one. Still one of these two strikers has a much stronger case than the other in that argument.
Season after season, Harry Kane broke records in the Premier League for Tottenham, but some lamented to truly consider him among the best until he did it on the biggest stage.
A World Cup golden boot and a strong season in the Champions League later, he has proved to be worthy of mention in similar breath of the world's current top strikers like Robert Lewandowski, Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.
Dropped into arguably the toughest group of the competition year alongside Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, they emerged top of the group. The Englishman scored seven goals in as many games as Spurs ran Juventus close in the knock-out stages.
Politics may prevent Icardi from ever truly being a force for Argentina like Kane has quickly become for England, but at club level his feats are becoming harder to ignore.
Yes the Argentine has shown great promise, it has been in Serie A and nowhere else. He has twice been crowned Serie A's joint top marksman and lead the Nerazzurri in goals for the last four seasons. He scored 44% of his side's goal and did so more efficiently than many of his Capocannoniere rivals. To many he is world class, and none of those achievements should be trivialised.
But it is difficult to really say it with your chest without seeing how he fares against Europe's best. In fact, this meeting against Tottenham will mark his Champions League debut.
It speaks more to the club's inadequacies and poor decisions over the last seven seasons rather than Icardi's quality, without whom they would likely still be outside of Europe's premier club competition.
Linked with a host of top clubs he has had the opportunity to do play in the cup elsewhere but wants to see how far he can go in blue and black. Now he is there it is time to show Europe and the wider world what he can do.
The last time Inter played European football they were dumped out of the Europa League after finishing rock bottom in a group with Sparta Prague, Southampton and Hapoel Be'er Sheva, losing 2-0 at home to the Israeli side.
In Barcelona, Tottenham and PSV Eindhoven, their latest group draw isn't exactly an easy one. Not that Icardi will worry. From scoring over 500 goals in his youth days in Gran Canaria to now, he has excelled at every level he's played at.
He has scored goals for whoever against whomever, despite a revolving door of managers and teammates. The step up and the inevitable test it brings should be welcomed.
It's a challenge he is likely to overcome, but nonetheless a challenge he needs to face to cement his reputation as one of Europe's best.
