"We need to look at the positive aspects of this game. We were only missing a goal," Galliani said.

They may have failed to reach the Quarter Finals but Milan shattered some stereotypes, according to Scott Fleming

Glorious failure was once the preserve of the Scottish national team. Now it seems Milan are getting in on the act.

There are some that will refute that observation straight off the bat, that will argue it's a disgrace for the Serie A leaders to be eliminated from the Champions League by a team sat 5th in the Premier League. Those people are living in the past. In 2008 to be precise, when Milan were reigning champions of Europe and Harry Redknapp took charge of a Tottenham side bottom of the table.

"We've got to see how he is," said Spurs manager Harry Redknapp. "He trained today, he did a little bit but I am not too sure about the game.

Milan assistant manager Mauro Tassotti feels they can get past Tottenham “even if we are in an emergency situation.”
