Milan v Tottenham

Published Add your comment

Tottenham enjoyed another memorable European night with a smash-and-grab 1-0 victory over AC Milan in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash.

After edging a close first half at the San Siro, Spurs needed two excellent saves from Heurelho Gomes and some resolute defending in a second 45 minutes which was dominated by the Italian hosts. It was a spiteful second half, too, with Vedran Corluka carried off with a nasty-looking injury following Mathieu Flamini's two-footed challenge.

However, it was Harry Redknapp's side who had the last word when Aaron Lennon led a lightning-fast break before feeding Peter Crouch to sweep home in the 80th minute. Zlatan Ibrahimovic thought he had equalised in added time only to have his goal disallowed.
