Team News
Still without long-term absentees Ryan Sessegnon, Hugo Lloris, Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur, Tottenham will also be working without the suspended Eric Dier after the England defender picked up his third European caution of the campaign in the first leg. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is back from a European ban of his own, though.

Dier was only an unused substitute in Saturday's Molineux defeat anyway - Clement Lenglet, Cristian Romero and Ben Davies ought to shield Fraser Forster again - and Conte's biggest selection dilemma arguably lies on the right-hand side.

Emerson Royal has enjoyed a redemption arc since the turn of the year, but Pedro Porro was arguably one of Spurs' biggest threats in the defeat to Wolves and will not cede his place without a fight.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Forster; Romero, Lenglet, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Perisic; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

AC Milan
Meanwhile, Milan coach Pioli - whose squad have been plagued by injuries throughout the campaign - is blessed with a near fully-fit contingent, but first-leg matchwinner Diaz has been training on his own due to a knee sprain and will need further assessment closer to kickoff.

Diaz is supposedly optimistic about his chances of playing, while first-choice goalkeeper Mike Maignan has now fully recovered from the calf injury that kept him out of the first leg, and the visitors can recall the Frenchman back into their European squad up to 24 hours before kickoff.

Pioli will also receive two major boosts with the returns of Rafael Leao and Rade Krunic from domestic suspensions, but none of Sergino Dest, Yacine Adli, Tiemoue Bakayoko or 41-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic were called up for the knockout rounds.
AC Milan possible starting lineup:
Maignan; Kalulu, Kjaer, Tomori; Saelemaekers, Krunic, Tonali, Hernandez; De Ketelaere, Giroud, Leao
Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 AC Milan (Milan win 2-1 on aggregate)
