Allegri pleased with Tottenham draw

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri appears to be happy with his side being drawn against Tottenham in the Last 16 of the Champions League.

The Rossoneri currently sit top of Serie A, but remain cautious of Spurs given they took three points off Inter in the group stages.

"They are a good side, but seeing the other teams that we could have also drawn, it was one of the less hostile on paper," Allegri said.

"I am happy with the draw. We are going to London and it's always a pleasure to play against the English.

"They are a good team, very strong in attack, but looking at the numbers, they concede something in defence."

English sides have knocked Milan out of the Champions League at the Last 16 stage in two of the last three seasons.
