AC Milan has progressed to the UEFA Champions League quarter finals for the first time since 2011-2012 with a 0-0 draw in the second leg of their round of 16 match against Tottenham Hotspur in London. AC Milan has won the Champions League seven times so far.
In the Champions League, the Italian giants had won the first leg at the San Siro stadium, due an early strike from Brahim Diaz, and both sides were coming off a domestic defeat last week. The two teams strung together a run of plays after kick-off as Junior Messias saw his attempt go wide of the post and Harry Kane’s deflected strike was saved by Milan goalkeeper Mike Maignan. Eventually, Tottenham went down in the 77th minute. The game culminated in stoppage time as Kane’s header forced a save out of Maignan, while on the resulting counter, Divock Origi struck the upright.
Tottenham’s season plunged after they were dumped out of the Champions League after its defeat to AC Milan. In a week that saw them knocked out of the FA Cup to Championship side Sheffield United and lose ground in the Premier League top-four race, the team was unable to overturn its first-leg deficit after a limp 0-0 second-leg draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
