Tottenham need to overturn a 1-0 deficit when they host AC Milan in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday night.

Spurs were held off by the Rossoneri in the first leg, failing to conjure too many scoring opportunities as Brahim Diaz’s seventh-minute strike settled proceedings.

Both teams come into the second part of the tie off the back of losses at the weekend and in danger of not qualifying for this competition next season.

Tottenham team news

Eric Dier is suspended for an accumulation of yellow cards and was left out at the weekend in the defeat at Wolves. A back three of Ben Davies, Clement Lenglet and Cristian Romero is expected to feature as it did at the weekend.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will slot into midfield having missed the first leg, but Hugo Lloris, Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon are all absent.

Tottenham predicted lineup (3-4-2-1):

Forster, Romero, Lenglet, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Richarlison; Kane.

AC Milan team news

Goalkeeper Mike Maignan has played two games since returning from a long-term injury in what has been a major boost for Stefano Pioli.

Diaz, who provided the clinical touch to separate the two teams in the first leg, is facing a battle to be ready in time due to a knee sprain.

AC Milan predicted lineup (3-4-2-1):

Maignan; Kalulu, Kjaer, Thiaw; Saelemaekers, Bennacer, Tonali, Hernandez; Leao, Krunic; Giroud.
