AC Milan face Tottenham Hotspur at the San Siro tonight as the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League returns after almost a decade for the Rossoneri fans. Milan have been in a terrible run of form but managed to scrape a win this weekend while Tottenham have equally struggled but got hammered 4-1 by Leicester City this weekend.
Stefano Pioli will choose to stick with his formation from the previous game as the 3-4-3 managed to keep a clean sheet against Torino and finally pick up a victory.
The battle is this game will be a tactical one between Pioli and Antonio Conte who had always been a tough manager for the Rossoneri to face and is more adept at managing a three-man backline.
After all the rumours, it seems Pioli will stick with Malick Thiaw and Alexis Saelemaekers over the reported Simon Kjaer and Davide Calabria. This is a huge vote of confidence in two youngsters who put in top-notch performances in the previous league tie.
Expected Line Up (3-4-3): Tatarusanu, Kalulu, Thiaw, Tomori, Saelemaekers, Tonali, Krunic, Hernandez, Diaz, Leao, Giroud.
