SPURS have been magnificent in the Champions League and their dream run should carry on tonight.

The White Hart Lane men will take great satisfaction from staying in the tournament longer than Arsenal but what they really want is a quarter-final slot.

And they should get it after beating AC Milan 1-0 in the San Siro in a storming first leg. Inter Milan were brushed aside at the Lane and AC are set to go the same way.

They need goals but don't play the kind of game that wil pressure opponents and I expect Spurs to win on the night.

Spurs have won their four Champions League home games and netted at least three times on each occasion.

oss Harry Redknapp is boosted by the return of flying Welshman Gareth Bale who some say is the best left winger in the world.

He scored a second-half hat-trick against Inter Milan in the group stages and ran rings around Brazilian defender Maicon in the reverse fixture.

Bale missed the first leg through injury and might not start while Rafael van der Vaart is also a doubt.

But Milan have their problems too with skipper Rino Gattuso banned and Mark van Bommel and Andrea Pirlo out.

Spurs don't have to win but are not the sort of side who sit on a lead so consider plus 3.5 goals at 7-4 with bet365.

A best price of 5-4 with Ladbrokes and bodog to win on the night looks too short while Spurs are generally 2-7 to qualify.

Milan, who will need a big performance from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, are 11-4 with 888sport to qualify and 12-5 at Paddy  Power and Chandler to win in London.

The other tie is tough to call. Most people expected Valencia to head for Schalke with a first-leg lead but they had to settle for a 1-1 draw.

However, Valencia continue to be the best side in Spain outwith the big two and I can see them edging through with a professional display.

They are a best 2-1 with Stan James to win and 15-8 with Stan James and 888sport to qualify.

Schalke are 8-5 with Chandler to win the game and 8-11 with Paddy Power and William Hill to make it through.

Both teams should score in an entertaining match and that pays 10-11 at Skybet and William Hill.

Raul, who netted against the Spaniards, in the first leg, is 6-1 with Chandler and bet365.


Spurs v AC Milan both teams to score (10-11, Skybet)
