TOTTENHAM will be desperate to overcome Italian icons AC Milan in a huge Champions League last-16 second leg – but their form has to change.
Brahim Diaz’s early strike was enough to see Milan run out 1-0 winners in the reverse fixture.
And since then, Spurs have been dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Sheffield United, before losing on the weekend to relegation-battling Wolves.
However, Antonio Conte’s men pulled off two huge London derby wins against West Ham and Chelsea last month.
Furthermore, Tottenham are set to take on a wounded Milan who recently suffered a shocking loss to twelfth-place Fiorentina in Serie A.
