Milan gain first-leg lead over Spurs

 Brahim Diaz’s early goal condemned Tottenham to a 1-0 loss against AC Milan in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, but Antonio Conte feels their fans can roar them on to victory back in north London.

Former Manchester City winger, Diaz, bundled home from close range after seven minutes and Spurs were fortunate not to fall further behind in the closing stages when Milan spurned two glorious headed chances through Charles De Kete­laere and MalickThiaw.

Instead, Conte will be relieved to return from a hostile San Siro with a deficit of only one goal, having been forced to field a central midfield pairing of Oliver Skipp and PapeSarr due to Rodrigo Bentan­cur’s injury and the suspension of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. – Sky Sports
