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
