Sportingbet preview: AC Milan
Our betting partners Sportingbet guide us through the markets for the big one against AC Milan.
Tottenham return to the San Siro just four months after their last Champions League visit but face an altogether different foe in AC Milan tonight.
Inter may have entertained Spurs in the group stages with the Champions League, Coppa Italia and Serie A trophies in the cabinet, but it is their neighbours who have dominated the Italian domestic scene this season.
With that supremacy in mind, Milan are short priced favourites for the first leg clash at 13/20, with Tottenham rated 18/5 outsiders according to the Sportingbet book. The draw would be considered a great result though, and at 13/5 it represents a touch of value for positive thinking Spurs fans.
This game could be all about the goals however, and after Tottenham joined a certain North London rival in putting on the highest scoring games in the group stages, Over 2.5 strikes at 4/5 looks a punt worth taking on.
