Milan will face Antonio Conte’s Tottenham as they’ll hope to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Milan finished the Group Stage of the Champions League in second place and for the first time in 9 years they reached the Round of 16 of the competition.
Today in Nyon the draw took place and the Rossoneri have been drawn against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur – a side they already faced in the 2010/11 campaign, when famously Rino Gattuso grabbed Joe Jordan by the neck.
The first leg will take place on Tuesday February 14 at Stadio San Siro (21:00 CET), while the return leg will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday March 8 (21:00 CET). Spurs finished first in Group D with 11 points, above Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting and Marseille.
Milan have a bad record against English teams and they’ve never beaten Tottenham in Europe, but it’s a relatively good draw for the Diavolo considering the alternatives.
I think Tottenham is better for us
We can beat them for sure
Its probably the best we could hope for. There is no hiding at this stage of the champions league.
The team needs to find momentum and consistency
Also our owners need to invest in January
Tough game for us definatley but we have to convert most of our chances, at this level it’s crucial.if we do we have a good chance of going to next round.
But it’s not always an easy game when playing England team
One thing I know about English team is that they are good at set pieces and are very fast.Their shooting accuracy is very high. So our defenders and keeper need to open their eyes wide and focus 100%.All our best defenders should be available and be on point.
Milan now or never! qualification is a must….Liberia is following.
