AC Milan vs Tottenham Tips
Continuing ours and the betting community's recent love-in with the fouls market, we're hot on the idea of Eric Dier committing one or more fouls for our main selection.
Tottenham's marmite defender has been a prominent figure in Antonio Conte's team, featuring in all but one 22/23 league game and only missing out on 12 minutes of Champions League action this term.
In his six European outings, Dier has committed at least one foul in five of them. This also stretches over to his current Premier League hit rate where this bet has landed in each of his three most recent starts.
On Tuesday, the Spurs man could come up against Rafael Leao, who has drawn a foul from his opponents in 5/6 UCL group games, and Brahim Diaz, who has forced the opposition to bring him down at least once in each of his four Champions League outings this campaign.
If backing goal scorers is more your thing, feast on this 7/1 double, courtesy of Olivier Giroud and Harry Kane.
Operators are having difficulty separate these two, and so are we. AC Milan are viewed as the slight favourites, priced at 31/20 with BetUK and Unibet.
Olivier Giroud reminded his doubters that he's still a force to be reckoned with in front of goal, finishing on six goals at December's World Cup Finals.
The 36-year-old continues to age like a fine wine, never losing his eye for goal. Giroud is four for six in this competition, and has netted in two of his last three matches, including Friday's winner over Torino.
For those superstitious bettors, his Arsenal connection also increases the likelihood of his name appearing on the scoresheet here.
Joining him in our two-pronged long shot is Harry Kane - a man who needs no introduction. Tottenham's all-time leading scorer endured a tough afternoon in Leicester on Saturday, and is the kind of spirited figure Spurs need to step up in these important matches.
England's captain has 17 goals from 23 Premier League appearances, but only one in this competition so far. That isn't for a lack of trying though: having let off 17 shots, five of which have hit the target. Despite his uncharacteristic tally in the UCL, he remains Tottenham's most prolific source of goals, and is their strongest outlet for taking something away from the San Siro.
