Tottenham Hotspur were dumped out of the Champions League after a toothless performance against AC Milan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night. The ten-man Spurs were booed off the pitch after the 0-0 draw saw them lose 1-0 on aggregate.
The first half was a cagey affair with both sides struggling to create any clear-cut chances. Spurs had the better of the possession but were unable to break down a stubborn Milan defence. The best chance of the half fell to Spurs’ Lucas Moura, who fired a shot just wide of the post.
The second half saw Spurs come out with more intent and they had a great chance to take the lead when Harry Kane was brought down in the box. However, the penalty was saved by Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.
The game then took a dramatic turn when Spurs defender Davinson Sanchez was sent off for a second yellow card. This left Spurs with ten men and they were unable to create any clear-cut chances for the remainder of the game.
The game ended 0-0 and Spurs were booed off the pitch by their own fans. It was a disappointing end to a promising Champions League campaign for Spurs, who had reached the last 16 for the first time in their history.
The result means that Milan progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, while Spurs will now focus on their Premier League campaign. It was a night to forget for Spurs and their fans, who will be hoping for better fortunes in the future.
