Tottenham vs AC Milan – Betting Preview
After Nicolas Gonzalez’s penalty and Luka Jovic’s header surprised the Rossoneri, Theo Hernandez offered a late consolation for the fifth-placed Scudetto holders, who are a staggering 19 points below their Naples counterparts.
The league is ostensibly a done deal for them, though, with Napoli still galloping off into the sunset.
This season, Tottenham Hotspur’s performances have not been impressive, and Antonio Conte’s position as coach of the team is uncertain. After undergoing surgery, Conte is recuperating in Italy, and deputy manager Cristian Stellini has excelled in his place.
Tottenham, which is currently fourth in the table but is watching Liverpool closely as they close in on them, faces the possibility of losing in the last 16 for the third time in their last four appearances in the top flight of European football.
Despite the fact that they have advanced from two of their last three matches despite losing the first leg.
A three-game winning streak at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where they have prevented goals from being scored by Manchester City, Chelsea, and West Ham United, is another reason for hope, and Milan won’t exactly enter the second leg with unbounded confidence either!
Ac Milan Preview
Vincenzo Italiano’s Fiorentina defeated AC Milan 2-1 in league play. Fiorentina won the game thanks to goals in the second half from Serbian striker Luka Jovic and Argentinian attacker Nicolas Gonzalez. Theo Hernandez, an AC Milan left back from France, scored the goal.
It appears like AC Milan is also at a crossroads. They finished fourth in the league this year after winning the Serie A the previous year, and manager Stefano Pioli is under fire.
Since only two of the Rossoneri’s six Champions League away games since 2021 have resulted in victories, the Champions League represents the Rossoneri’s last realistic opportunity to bolster their trophy collection this season. Despite this, the Rossoneri have a pitiful record of just two wins in their last eight games played away from home.
However, they have been outscored 9-1 in their last three trips to the English capital, and keeping an unfavourable chance at Champions League glory alive would undoubtedly calm some of the familiar rage circling the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the ever-inconsistent Lilywhites.
1×2 Betting Odds
Let’s begin analysing the 1×2 market
Tottenham have struggled for consistency throughout the season and recent meek performances aren’t a good indicator too! But not to forget, they will be playing at home!
The betting market thinks they can turn this around, with odds standing @ 2.02.
Milan will know the pressure is on their hosts to force a goal. With talents like Rafael Leao in attack, there’s every chance they could strike on the break to put this tie to bed. But perhaps the one-goal lead held by AC Milan might not be enough!
They are the underdogs in this @ 4.30.
The market odds of a stalemate stands @ 3.74.
Total goals over/under
Let’s check the over/under scenario
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.09.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.85.
Tottenham’s last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals, while Four of Milan’s last five matches have had under 2.5 goals aswell!
So perhaps it is best to expect that scoring trend to continue!
