Tottenham vs AC Milan Bet Builder Tips
After a feisty first encounter which returned 30 fouls and five bookings, backing cards in this second leg seems like the logical play.
Spurs enter proceedings knowing that they have to at least shutout AC Milan and score one goal themselves just to take the tie to extra time.
This match also represents a final opportunity for Antonio Conte's side to challenge for silverware this term, having been dumped out of the FA Cup to Championship Sheffield United last week.
They'll be looking at leader Harry Kane to provide the spark that will help overturn their one-goal deficit. Although he has been distinctly lacking on the European stage when it comes to goals this term, his enthusiasm and application can never be questioned.
His role has become a defining piece in the Antonio Conte-Tottenham jigsaw puzzle. His aggressive front pressing is Tottenham's first point of defence and establishes exactly the way in which Conte wants his team to setup out of possession.
He's also adopted a more versatile role to the previous advanced forward we had gotten used to. Jose Mourinho helped mould Kane into a player with more freedom, who can and should drop deep to receive the ball sooner and more often. Now, it's a natural part of his game.
As highlighted in our dedicated Tottenham vs AC Milan match preview, England's joint all-time leading goalscorer has committed 1+ fouls in nine of his last 10. That comes with the territory of playing a slightly deeper role, but also exemplifies his willingness to win the ball back to initiate his side's attacks.
If Spurs are to remain in this competition beyond Wednesday, they'll need this type of energy and aggression in abundance - something Kane is likely to be at the centre of instigating. 23 fouls and four yellows in 26 Premier League appearances and six fouls and one booking in seven Champions League outings this term certainly seem to suggest so, anyway.
On AC Milan's end, Theo Hernandez is the target we've chosen to pick up a caution at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Both Spurs and AC were issued a pair of yellows each two weeks ago at the San Siro, with Theo Hernandez one of those culprits in red and black.
That 90+2' booking was the Frenchman's sixth of the season and there's every reason to believe he'll find himself entered into the referee's book for a second time in the 22/23 Champions League campaign on Wednesday.
Being deployed as a wing-back gives Hernandez a lot more responsibility at both ends of the pitch. Given the state of play for Spurs, there'll be a dependence on him to solidify AC's defensive efforts in the capital if Milan are to preserve their one-goal cushion.
Down that flank, the 25-year-old will be directly responsible for keeping the tricky Dejan Kulusevski at bay. Spurs are blessed with a wealth of attacking options that can be deployed in a variety of positions across their forward line, meaning that Hernandez could be preparing to face one opponent and end up directly opposing someone else entirely.
Tottenham's system is geared more towards building attacks down the right channel, allowing Ben Davies to step inside and form a defensive three with the two centre backs out of possession. Between Emerson Royal and Pedro Porro linking up with the likes of Kulusevski, Son, Richarlison and Kane all on that side, the French international will have his fair share of defending to do in London.
