Match Preview of Tottenham vs Milan

The Champions League knockout round begins on Tuesday, with AC Milan set to play host to Tottenham Hotspur for the first leg of their last-16 tie.

The Catalan giants are currently in pole position to reclaim the title, while Villarreal are sixth in the division, four points behind fourth-placed Atletico Madrid in the battle for a Champions League spot.

Milan returned to winning ways with a narrow victory over Torino on Friday, while the visitors need to pick themselves up after being thrashed 4-1 by Leicester City at the weekend.

After enduring a torrid seven-game winless run - which included defeats to their great rivals Inter in both the Italian Super Cup and the league - AC Milan knew only a win would do against Torino in Friday's Serie A offering.

The Rossoneri had only been knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Ivan Juric's side last month, but they exacted revenge for that extra-time defeat, with Olivier Giroud heading home just after the hour mark to guide Milan to just their second win of 2023.

An unconvincing but precious victory helps alleviate some of the pressure that had been building on Stefano Pioli, but with his side 18 points adrift of league leaders Napoli and out of the domestic cup, the Milan boss needs a positive performance form his side in the Champions League.

Our Predicted Lineups

Tottenham possible starting lineup:Forster; Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Sarr, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Son; Kane

Milan possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Tatarusanu; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori; Calabria, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Giroud

Who will win the match?

We say: AC Milan 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs will head to Italy in a downbeat mood following Saturday's poor performance and the news that Bentancur will miss the rest of the season through injury. Conte is charged will lifting his players for a meeting with an AC Milan side, who have been far from their best in 2023, and with neither team wanting to risk too much with a second leg to play, we think Tuesday's contest could finish all square.
