AC Milan hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the legendary San Siro in a first leg from the Champions League 1/8-finals. Stay with us and our expert football predictions for tomorrow.
AC Milan are facing Tottenham in a moment when everyone has some doubts about their shape. The Rossoneri had a run of negative results in all competitions before finally winning again – versus Torino on Saturday. Stefano Pioli’s team hosted the Bulls and enjoyed a difficult, but well-needed 1-0 win. Olivier Giroud scored the only goal in the game in the second half. Theo Hernandez provided the assist.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic finally returned in AC Milan’s group after recovering from an injury. It means that he could play against Tottenham, but his problem is lacking match practice. Most likely Pioli will stick to Giroud as number 9 and Rafael Leao and Brahim Diaz supporting him.
Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Italy after a humiliating 1-4 defeat against Leicester City in the Premier League.
It was a very poor performance by Antonio Conte’s team at the King Power Stadium in Leicester. Rodrigo Bentancur put Spurs ahead in the scoreline, but since then Leicester dominated and scored four times.
Antonio Conte was furious with his boys’ performance against Leicester. He could do some changes in the line-up for Tuesday. Players like Richarlison, Emerson, Pape Sarr, Davinson Sanchez and Arnaut Danjuma are in contention to start at the San Siro.
Harry Kane remains the biggest threat for AC Milan’s defense. The English international remains Spurs’ deadliest striker with 19 goals in 31 matches played. The Rossoneri’s defense will be extra careful with him.
That’s the expert football predictions for tomorrow for the Champions League 1/8-finals first leg between AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur. Let’s see which one of these two teams will have a better performance at the San Siro.
