Only 90 minutes stand between AC Milan and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League quarters for the first time in a decade.

Milan beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 in the first leg at the San Siro and now need to avoid defeat if they are to avoid a last 16 exit.

The reigning Italian champions have been eliminated at the last-16 stage in five of their previous six appearances in the competition.

The previous meeting between the two teams in the UEFA Champions League took place in 2011, with Spurs winning by a 1-0 aggregate score line.

In Tottenham’s most recent last-16 appearance, they were thumped 4-0 on aggregate by RB Leipzig, which included a miserable 3-0 defeat in the away leg.

Tottenham are at risk of a third last-16 elimination from their last four runs in the top tier of European football.

Victory over Spurs marked the second of a four-game winning run across all tournaments for Milan, who also kept three clean sheets in February.

Milan have only won 2 games away from home in their last 8 and will need to be at their best if they are to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Antonio Conte has won 8 of his last 9 matches against Milan and has overseen his teams keeping clean sheets against the Rossoneri in their last 3 matches.
