Tottenham is facing a crucial match against AC Milan in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. The team is hoping to turn around a one-goal deficit from their disappointing defeat in Italy last month. Antonio Conte, who is returning to the dugout after gallbladder surgery, will lead Milan. Tottenham has been struggling in Conte’s absence, with the team being knocked out of the FA Cup and seeing their gap to Liverpool in the race for fourth place cut to just three points.
Despite their struggles, Tottenham can take solace from Milan’s poor record of just two wins from their last eight away games. Milan was beaten 2-1 on their trip to Fiorentina on Saturday, while Conte has won five of his last six home games against his former Milan rivals in all competitions.
The match will kick off at 8:10 pm, and Tottenham will field a strong lineup featuring Forster, Romero, Lenglet, Davies, Royal, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic, Kulusevski, Son, and Kane. The team’s subs include Austin, Whiteman, Tanganga, Sanchez, Porro, Sarr, Devine, Danjuma, Lucas, and Richarlison.
Milan’s XI will feature Maignan, Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori, Messias, Tonali, Krunic, Hernandez, Diaz, Leao, and Giroud. The team’s subs include Mirante, Calabria, Ballo, Gabbia, Pobega, Bennacer, Kjaer, Rebic, Florenzi, Saelemaekers, De Ketelaere, and Origi.
