Milan vs Tottenham predictions and betting tips on February 14, 2023
On February 14, San Siro (Milan) will host the 1/8 final match of the Champions League, in which Milan will compete with Tottenham. The battle will start at 21:00 CET.
The team, being under the rule of Stefano Pioli, experienced a rise, a quite unexpected one. At first, this not too famous, but sensible specialist finally returned the grandee to the Champions League. There, however, “the Rossoneri” got into a difficult company and ended the European battle after the group stage. At the same time, they were able, having unloaded their schedule, to take the Scudetto. In the autumn of 2022, the Italian grandee reached the play-offs without any particular troubles, however, for the higher mentioned result the team had to be stronger only than Dinamo (Zagreb) and Red Bull (Salzburg). But then, “the Red and Blacks” were in a great shape, which cannot be said about the team now. After a pause for the World Cup, the club has been changed in a pretty unpleasant way and suffers setback by setback. Losing a lot of powers, the team defeated Torino with a 1-0 score.
The club, after its peak in the form of reaching the Champions League final several times in a row, did not receive tickets to this tournament at all. And pushing Arsenal from the 4th place at the finish line in the previous season, Conte’s wards managed to return to the higher mentioned level. Nowadays, there is an equally difficult struggle for a place in the quartet of the Premier League, and “the Spurs” are not favourites in it. Nevertheless, the team has recently won the match against Manchester City. Then, there was a rout from Leicester – 1-4. Not everything was OK for Antonio’s wards at the international arena in the autumn. But one way or another, they got into the play-offs of the tournament. A strong-willed away victory in the battle with a direct competitor, Marseille, in the last round of the group matches, was a decisive one.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs did not often play in official head-to-head matches – half a century ago, in the UEFA Cup in 1972 and in the Champions League at the beginning of 2011. The scenario was identical: the minimum victory of the British team in the first match and the draw in the return one.
Bookmakers believe that the chances of the opponents are approximately identical. Still, taking into account the fact that Tottenham, like all Conte’s teams, do not succeed in the Champions League, it is worth betting on “the Rossoneri” with “a 0 goal handicap” (odd: 1.93).
