Tottenham 0-0 Milan (0-1 agg) – Highlights

The 1-0 first leg’s scoreline was slim, and Milan was all out defense while Tottenham urged to find an equalizer with the home advantage.

However, neither side managed to make an attempt on target in the first half. Spurs’ pressure in the second period was also not enough to break down Milan with an on-form Mike Maignan in the post.

London-based Spurs, who had their Cristian Romero sent off 11 minutes from time, could not pull another UCL’s miracle night.

Spurs top scorer and captain Harry Kane – who finishes with just one goal in eight Champions League games this season – unable to test Maignan until added time.

Former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori in particular was brilliant at the back for the visitors, finishing with the most clearances (four) of and most blocks (two) of any player on his return to London – an easy Man of the match award for the English man.

Antonio Conte was back at the dugout, but the Italian boss could not help his club and now under the pressure and big question on how long he will remain as the club head coach.
