TIME: 15:00ET / 12 p.m. PT
VENUE: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Referee: Clément Turpin
Tottenham: Although Tottenham are having a good season in the Premier League, things in Europe didn’t go their way in their first-leg clash vs. AC Milan, losing 1-0 to the Rossoneri.
The Spurs, who were recently eliminated from the FA Cup by second-tier Sheffield United, are sitting fourth in the domestic tournament with 45 points, four less than Manchester United, who have one game in hand.
The English side will be confident of overturning their one-goal deficit in front of their fans. Tottenham have managed to progress from two of their last three European ties when losing the first leg.
Antonio Conte’s men are on a three-game winning run at home, defeating Manchester City, Chelsea, and West Ham United without conceding.
AC Milan: The Italians took the lead in the fixture thanks to an early Brahim Diaz goal three weeks ago at San Siro.
Unlike last season, when AC Milan become the Serie A champions, they are offering a way poorer image this term, sitting fifth with 47 points, tied to AS Roma and only one point behind third-placed Lazio, although league leaders Napoli have grabbed 18 more points than Stefano Pioli’s squad.
Their four-game winning streak in the league came to an end last weekend when they lost to Fiorentina (2-1) and they have only won two games from their last eight away from home in all competitions.
However, AC Milan have only been eliminated three times from their last 21 Champions League knockout clashes when coming out on top in the first leg.
