Sportingbet Preview: AC Milan

Sportingbet, the Club's official betting partners, give us the rundown ahead of tonight's Champions League, Round of 16 second leg against AC Milan...

Spurs head into their Champions League clash with AC Milan in a commanding position and the Sportingbet book makes them 2/7 to qualify.

Tottenham Hotspur have a convincing home record in the competition too, having won every home game in their Champions League debut season, and are 11/10 to repeat the trick this evening.

Harry Redknapp’s men only need a draw to see them through to the last eight and that’s been chalked up at 12/5, so if you expect a few nerves at the Lane, it could be the value punt.

Sportingbet make the Serie A leaders 23/10 to get the result they need, meanwhile, with 2/1 available for them to be victorious inside 90 minutes.

After winning the first leg in such dramatic style, Spurs would be delighted with a little déjà vu and punters can also benefit thanks to Sportingbet’s Champions League promotion.

Simply back your selection of choice in the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets, and if Peter Crouch grabs the last goal again, losing tips will be refunded as a free bet of up to £25.

As ever, that makes for a nice insurance policy in the applicable markets, so if Gareth Bale wins his fitness battle, the Welshman could be worth backing for a goalscoring return at 8/1 for First Goalscorer and 13/5 for an anytime strike.

You might fancy Steven Pienaar to get off the mark (21/5 any time), Aaron Lennon to add a goal to his first leg assist (19/5 any time) or Jermain Defoe (11/2 First Goalscorer) to follow up his weekend brace with another sweet finish.

A 2-1 Spurs win pays 8/1 while a 3-3 thriller could yield 66/1 on your cash. Combine the two markets for an even bigger score thanks to Scorecast, with Crouch to notch first in a 3-2 Spurs victory returning 150/1!

Good luck!

Odds correct at the time of writing.
