Tottenham has had the best results lately. The team unexpectedly lost to the club from the second division – Sheffield United (0: 1) in the 1/8 finals of the FA Cup. In addition, they lost in the last round of the Premier League to Wolverhampton (0: 1). As a result, Spurs are in danger of losing their place in the Champions League zone. They average 1.41xg per game in national championships, with 1.14xg allowed.

In the first match at the San Siro, the team lost by a minimum score of 0:1, which puts them in an uncomfortable position. Now Tottenham are forced to act in an unusual way, playing the first number, which is burdened with an increased number of errors.

Milan shares the 4th place in Serie A with Roma, second only to them in additional indicators. After the competition resumed, the team fell into the black stripe, gaining only 5 points in 6 games, which was the reason for tactical formations. In the last 4 rounds, the Rossoneri switched to a scheme with 3 central defenders, which immediately affected the result. They significantly improved their defensive game and scored 9 points during this time. Only the loss with Fiorentina (1:2) interrupted the series of 3 wins “dry”.

Tottenham will have to work hard to break through the Rossoneri’s beefed-up defense and regain the result. Perhaps Spurs will adopt the Fiorentina model of high, intense pressing that worked in the last game. I am looking forward to a more open match with many touching moments.
