The English side succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Milan in the Round of 16 first-leg encounter which was played in Italy on February 14.
The defeat ended Tottenham's four-match unbeaten run in the Champions League  - winning two games and drawing two.
The Lilywhites are undefeated in their last three matches at home in this tournament having recorded two successive wins and one draw.
While Milan are unbeaten in their last three matches in the Champions League - winning three games in a row. 
The Italian giants defeated Dinamo Zagreb in their last away match in this competition and the win ended their two-match winless run on the road. 
What Is At Stake 
Tottenham will have to win by two clear goals in order to secure their spot in the quarter-finals or by a one-goal margin to take the tie to extra-time.
Milan will win this tie if they avoid a defeat in London with the draw for the quarter-finals set to take place on March 17. 
Team News
Tottenham will be without Yves Bissouma, Ryan Sessegnon, Hugo Lloris and Rodrigo Bentancur who are all nursing injuries.
On the other hand, Milan do not have any injury and suspension concerns coming into this encounter.
Key Players

"I am very happy about the goal and especially the win," Brahim Diaz, who scored Milan's winning goal against Tottenham, said after the game. 
"It's important to go into the second leg with this. We deserve this. The fans were incredible: just look at them, listen to them. 
"We're not favourites. We will focus on the league now and then go to London [on 8 March]."
Tottenham were held to a 0-0 draw the last time they drew 0-0 with Milan in the Champions League and the game took place at White Hart Lane on 9 March 2011.
