Tottenham have lost three of their last five outings across all competition. Three days after bowing out of the FA Cup to second-tier side Sheffield United, Spurs suffered another 1-0 loss in the English top flight, this time to Wolves courtesy of Adama Traore’s second-half effort. Despite the defeat, Antonio Conte’s side are still holding on to the fourth spot in the Premier League standings, having collected 45 points from 26 games, just three clear of fifth-placed Liverpool, who have a game in hand. Meanwhile on a positive note, the North London club has won their last three games in front of their own supporters, while preventing Manchester City, West Ham United and Chelsea from getting on the scoresheet during the impressive run at home.
Milan, on the other hand, have lost six of their last 11 games across all competitions. Their latest defeat came against Fiorentina in the league on Saturday, despite the fact that Theo Hernandez got on the scoresheet. The poor run of form has pushed Milan down to fifth spot in the Italian top flight standings, with 47 points to their name from 25 games, 18 adrift of the leaders Napoli. As the Rossoneri have already been eliminated from the Coppa Italia, the Champions League represents the last realistic chance for Stefano Pioli’s side to add to their trophy cabinet this season.
