Spurs v AC Milan: Video Preview

Next Story

Spurs host AC Milan in the Champions League last 16, second leg tonight holding a slender advantage from the first leg.

After qualifying as Group A winners, Harry Redknapp's men stunned the bianconerri in the San Siro with Peter Crouch scoring the only goal of the game on a breakaway.

Tottenham have vowed to attack despite the advantage, with Redknapp keen to stick to the policy that's worked so successfully thus far.

"It's a massive game for us and will be a great atmpsphere. The fans obviously can't wait for it to start and the players are ready to play so it should be a good night," said the Spurs boss.

"It's a wide open competition again and it's there for someone to win it, but we have to beat Milan first."

Gareth Bale is fighting for fitness, and is expected to feature in some capacity at White Hart Lane after making a substitute appearance against Wolves at the weekend.

Jermain Defoe is also desperate to start after bagging a brace in the same match, although Redknapp is expected to lead with the Peter Crouch-Rafael Van der Vaart combination that's served the club so well in Europe after the Dutchman shook off an injury earlier in the week.

AC Milan can't be written off yet though, with Alexandre Pato, Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovich all expected to be involved at some stage as the Serie 'A' outfit chase goals in the capital.
