The 2022/23 Champions League last 16 second-leg tie between Tottenham and AC Milan on Wednesday night is delicately poised, with the Premier League side looking to overturn their 1-0 defeat in Milan when the two sides face each other at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Milanisti will head to the English capital in high spirits, though, having conceded just two goals in five games and having rediscovered some of the attacking threat that took them to the Serie A title last term. However, with all-time top club goalscorer Harry Kane leading the Spurs line, it could be a busy night for the Milan defence.
Milan’s good run of form was brought to an end with the defeat against Fiorentina on Saturday, whilst Spurs were beaten by Wolves in the Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups
Goalkeeper Mike Maignan’s return from long-term injury against Atalanta will have boosted the Rossoneri as they look to capitalise on their narrow first-leg victory and Rafael Leao will return to the starting lineup after missing the Serie A trip to Fiorentina through suspension.
With former Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur expected to be missing through injury, 22-year-old midfielder Oliver Skipp should start in midfield alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for the hosts and Clement Lenglet will continue in place of Ben Davies in their back three.
Tottenham predicted XI vs AC Milan (3-4-2-1): Forster; Romero, Dier, Lenglet; Emerson Royal, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Richarlison; Kane.
AC Milan predicted XI vs Tottenham (3-4-2-1): Maignan; Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Tonali, Krunic, Hernandez; Diaz, Leao; Giroud.
