'It could have been worse', he says, having avoided Barca, Bayern & UnitedAC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has labelled Tottenham Hotspur as the "least tricky" opponents that his charges could have been drawn against in the Champions League, and believes that his side could carve out a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
The former Cagliari boss intends to take advantage of Spurs' fragile back line, as they conceded 11 goals in their six group games - more than any other group winner.
"All the teams who have made it this far are good, but it could have been worse," Allegri said, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"Tottenham score freely and have quality up front, but they always give something away at the back."
"Tottenham are certainly an excellent team, but they are one of the least tricky of the possible opponents."
