Live on ITV1 & Skysports 2: Wed 19.45: A draw, 5/2 (Betfred), is enough for Tottenham against AC Milan and they could press for a win.
Tottenham possess a slender 1-0 lead as they prepare to lock horns with AC Milan for a second time and with most of the hard work carried out in the San Siro, Harry Redknapp’s men look a banker at 3/10 with Paddy Power to finish the job and secure qualification for the quarter finals of the Champions League.
A draw, priced by Betfred at 5/2, would be enough to take Spurs through but utilising their pace on the counter-attack, especially now Gareth Bale is fit again, the hosts can fare a little better than that and they’re 13/10 courtesy of William Hill to emphatically seal their progress by winning the match.
A slight worry for Redknapp is the fact that his side have shipped six goals in their last two domestically but Italian sides rarely attack with the numbers and indeed the gusto of Premiership teams and for the most part Tottenham looked pretty comfortable at the back in the away leg.
Subsequently, if Spurs can nullify the threat of the Rossoneri in the early stages, the visitors will become increasingly desperate and that’s when the hosts can pick them off. A small, speculative interest in a home win following a drawn first period is worth considering then at 9/2 with bet365.
Valencia were expected to beat Schalke at the Mestalla but will instead take a 1-1 draw over to Germany. Nevertheless, Los Che are in decent form domestically and can get on the scoresheet in the Veltins Arena, where they catch the eye at 5/4 (Coral) to plot a path to the last eight one way or another.
