Ibrahimovic goes from Siro to hero

The first leg was an explosive clash that will sadly not remembered by many for Tottenham's football prowess but AC Milan's indiscipline. Gattuso is suspended for the match on Tuesday evening and he head butted the Tottenham coach Joe Jordan after the final whistle.

Flamini is available and he will receive a torrent of abuse from the Spurs fans. Not only is he a former Arsenal player but his tackle on Corluka was despicable and bordered on assault.  Corluka has not played since his trip to Milan and the Italian's petulant behaviour will not have gone unnoticed.

The Tottenham ninety minute win is 6/5, the draw is 23/10 and AC Milan is 9/4. Tottenham will be boosted by the return of Van der Vaart to the starting eleven along with Gareth Bale.  Tottenham are incapable of sitting on their 1-0 lead and they will look to win the game.

The 6/5 is too short for me but Spurs definitely have a good chance of winning at White Hart Lane and Milan are a team in decline, full of ageing stars that may struggle to cope with the pace of Van der Vaart and Bale.

Both teams to score is 8/11 and Tottenham motto has always been 'if you score one, we will score two'. Redknapp thinks that the best form of defence is attack.  Over 2.5 goals is Even money and it looks a cracking bet. Tottenham are not the best at the back and the game could be end to end.

There were six goals in the Tottenham match at the weekend and Defoe grabbed two. Defoe may have to settle for a place on the bench and AC Milan will need to take the attacking threat of Crouch seriously.  He looks a big price at 7/4 to score anytime and he can bag the first goal at 6/1.

Tottenham will try and make the most of his height and he will definitely have a quality supply of crosses with both Van der Vaart and Bale playing. After Bales' exploits at the San Siro earlier this season, you would think that Milan see him as the main danger.

He scored Spurs' last winner in the first leg and he can become their hero in Europe this season. In Europe he has scored seven goals in eight games and he the European teams cannot handle his size. The European sides are not used to dealing with such a potent aerial threat.

Bale is 10/3 to score anytime and he will be taking on the AC Milan right-back Ignazio Abate. He is fully fit and can help dictate the game with Lennon, Van der Vaart and Bale.

Tottenham will have to deal with the threat of Ibrahimovic. He has a tendency to disappear during matches and he is up against the best free signing of the summer, William Gallas.

The Swede is 7/1 to grab the first goal but like Milan's Robinho he is capable of winning a tie by himself.

Our Match Winner is for a red card to be shown in the match (7/2). The last match was fiery and it would not surprise me if a red card is produced after the ninety minutes ends. AC Milan are clearly sore losers and the Italian side is full of overpaid and aged prima donnas.
