Milan will face Antonio Conte’s Tottenham as they’ll hope to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Milan finished the Group Stage of the Champions League in second place and for the first time in 9 years they reached the Round of 16 of the competition.

Today in Nyon the draw took place and the Rossoneri have been drawn against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur – a side they already faced in the 2010/11 campaign, when famously Rino Gattuso grabbed Joe Jordan by the neck.

The first leg will take place on Tuesday February 14 at Stadio San Siro (21:00 CET), while the return leg will be played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday March 8 (21:00 CET). Spurs finished first in Group D with 11 points, above Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting and Marseille.

Milan have a bad record against English teams and they’ve never beaten Tottenham in Europe, but it’s a relatively good draw for the Diavolo considering the alternatives.
