Major breakthrough for Tottenham?

Barcelona won as expected in what has surely been a massive confidence booster to them as they advance to the next round. They deserve to go through and now they know they can overcome any deficit that can sometimes happen to them on their travels. As for Arsenal, they are down to 2 trophies after ridiculous boasting of a possible 4 some weeks earlier. It's their lucklessness that they had to face Barcelona at this stage and while it's up to debate whether Van Persie was wrongfully red-carded, which changed the face of the game, Barcelona were the better team in both legs.

On Wednesday, it's Tottenham hosting Milan in what is a massive challenge and opportunity for Harry Rednapp's men. This Tottenham team is exciting, adventurous and fearless with or without Bale and Van der Vaart. I hope for real football fans that they qualify tomorrow because they play better football than Milan, with less-known players. In fact, my head thinks they will qualify. At their current odds, a draw-no-bet on them looks good value and is recommended. There is nothing extraordinary with this Milan team. Their players talk a lot, but there is only one player that really dangerous by himself in this team, and it's Alexander Pato. If Tottenham's average defence can contain him, they have a great chance. Tottenham will most probably score, it's up to their defence to hold things tight.

Draw-no-bet: Tottenham
