h1>Champions League betting – Milan vs Spurs
Milan vs Spurs betting preview, odds and tips
AC Milan Form: DDWWDD League Position: 1sr
AC Milan edged out of group G in second place with only a single point over 3rd placed Ajax. However the Italian giants have some real firepower in their side and currently sit top of the Italian Serie A. Milan also boast an impressive goal record after managing 40 goals in 24 league games this season. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the Rossoneri’s top scorer this season with 13 league goals and 4 in the Champions League and a great price at 9/2 with Stan James to open the scoring on the night. Milan may though have to be a bit more careful in defence if they are to come out on top over the two legs after they conceded 7 goals in just 6 group games. Despite this they are strong favourites to win the first leg at home and best priced at 5/6 with Betfred and plenty of other bookmakers.
Tottenham Form: WDDLWW League position: 5th
Tottenham’s European adventure continues on Tuesday night when they face a tough clash away at Giuseppe Meazza after exceeding expectations and finishing top of their group above Inter Milan. Although Tottenham have had a good season in the Premier League, Redknapp’s men have perhaps not scored as many goals as they would have liked. Rafael Van Der Vaart has been central to their success this season after scoring 10 goals in the league so far this season and the Dutch is a good bet at 8/1 with Stan James to score at any time in the game. Gareth Bale has also shone this season and Tottenham’s chances may depend on the fitness of the left-winger. Despite being clear underdogs for the first leg, Spurs are still seen as able to progress over the two legs and are best priced at evens with most bookmakers to do so.
Match Prediction Milan WIN best priced at 1.75 with Paddy Power
Tottenham’s chances look slim in Italy on Tuesday when they could be facing a front line of Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Antonio Cassano, which should give their back four a real test. Spurs have saved their best performances for Europe this season though and if you feel they could cause another shock on Tuesday then odds of 37/10 are available from Unibet for an away win. On the other hand a 3-1 Milan win is showing great odds of 15/1 with Unibet. It is also worth bearing in mind that Tottenham have been very resilient this season and have taken more points than any other team in the Premier League from losing positions.
