Shots Off Target
Shots On Target
That is all for today - thanks for tuning in.
It's another disappointing night for Conte and Spurs who must now turn their attention back to the Premier League. They face Nottingham Forest at home on Saturday. Milan, meanwhile, host Salernitana on Monday in the Serie A.
Milan hold firm and a 0-0 draw here at Tottenham means they advance to the quarter-finals after a 1-0 win on aggregate. It was undeniably another hugely frustrating Tottenham performance for the home fans to sit through with only two shots on target in the whole game. After an actionless first-half, Diaz forced a good save from Forster before Hojbjerg had an effort palmed over by Maignan. Spurs grew into the game but were soon reduced to ten men after Romero was issued with a second yellow card for a rash challenge on Hernandez. Kane was denied at the death by a fine Maignan stop low down before Milan nearly doubled their aggregate lead with Origi hitting the post. No goal in the game but that won't matter one bit to Milan who celebrate going through to their first Champions League quarter-final since 2012.

It's a cynical foul from Skipp who is booked for bringing down Tonali.

SAVE!!! A massive save by Maignan to deny Kane at the death. Son delivers and Kane rises but the Milan keeper gets down fantastically to palm away the header. Milan break up the other end with numbers and Origi sees his effort cannon back off the post.

90' + 3'
Thiaw brings down Hojbjerg and Spurs have a free-kick from long range.
There will be six minutes of added time for Spurs to find a vital goal.
Milan make another change as Leao is replaced by Rebic.
Milan substitute Bennacer unleashes a well-hit drive from long range but Forster is equal to it and gets down well to save.
End-to-end action here as Spurs appeal for a penalty as Sanchez goes down in the box before Milan break and Tonali sees his effort well-blocked by the recovering Porro.
Sanchez comes on after Romero's red card with Kulusevski sacrificed.
Hojbjerg's effort remains Spurs' only effort on target in this game. They've increased their urgency in this second half but they've still threatened greatly.
Giroud also comes off with Origi on to replace the French forward.
Milan make a double change. First off is Diaz who makes way for the more defensively-minded Bennacer.
RED CARD! Spurs are down to ten men as Romero receives a second yellow card. The ball is there to be contested between Hernandez and Romero but the Argentine centre-back recklessly flies into the challenge again and it's an obvious second yellow.
Son with the corner now but it's another poor delivery which goes straight out for a goal kick.
Son delivers and Hernandez heads it away from Kane and out for a corner.
Richarlison is straight into the action, first, barging into Maignan unnecessarily before then winning a foul and a Spurs free-kick.
Kulusevski wins a corner off Hernandez but Milan deal with the danger.
Thiaw hits a hopeful ball upfield and Leao uses his strength and pace to get onto the ball. Romero, in turn, does well to shadow the forward away from goal and into a wayward effort that goes well over the bar.
A second change for Spurs sees Emerson head off and Richarlison brought on in an attacking move.
Porro's influence has been noticeable since he's come on. His cross is met by Kane but the striker gets it all wrong and his stooping header dribbles wide.
SAVE! Another warning shot from Milan as the Spurs defence fail to clear the ball. The ball arrives at the feet of Diaz on the penalty spot but he can't find room for the shot. The ball bounces through to Giroud but he struggles to test Forster properly from a tight angle and Forster makes a good stop.
Milan break as Spurs look to push players forward. Leao looks to get a shot off but Romero blocks it well.
Milan deal with the initial cross but an enticing second cross is met by Kane but he can't get the requisite power on the header to divert it goalbound.
SAVE!! Hojbjerg burst into the box with the ball and creates a shooting opportunity. It's a tight angle but a fierce effort which Maignan is equal to and palms behind for a corner.
There's an increased sense of urgency from the Spurs players but the Milan defence have done well at isolating the Spurs players and preventing them from putting together incisive patterns of play.
Porro's effort goes straight into the wall.
Kane with a great turn in a tight space and he draws the foul from Tonali in a good position.
Messias does come off with Saelemaekers replacing him.
Messias appears to have picked up a knock and it looks like Milan will have to make a change.
With that change, Emerson moves over to the left flank where Perisic was playing. Porro goes onto the right-hand side.
Conte turns to his bench and it is Perisic who makes way for Porro.
SAVE!! Milan with a huge chance and it's a massive save from Forster. Hernandez drives through the middle before feeding Diaz. He combines with Messias before squirming into the box but the Spurs goalkeeper is on hand to make an expert stop with his feet and keep Spurs in this game.
Kulusevski wins the ball high up the pitch after a poor Milan pass. He feeds Emerson down the right but the cross is poor. The play is recycled before a better ball from Kulusevski is defended well by Milan and the away side have a goal kick.
Milan get this second half underway.
Spurs have it all to do in this second half to turn around their deficit. They have scored just six first-half goals in their last 25 matches in all competitions and each of their last six which is a worrying trend. Conte will need to inspire a much-improved second-half performance if his side are to stay in the Champions League. Pioli will demand more of the same from his Milan team - they've been resolute, organised on the ball and disciplined in defence. They have the advantage as it stands and won't feel threatened after that Spurs first-half display.
Few chances to speak about as we reach half-time and there are plenty of boos from the Spurs fans as the home side head off for the break. In truth, Conte's men have barely threatened at all with Emerson's deflected shot - claimed comfortably by Maignan - perhaps their best chance of the half. Milan have looked comfortable and haven't had to do too much but have threatened with both wing-backs but, like Spurs, have failed to carve out any meaningful opportunities.

HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 0-0 MILAN
45' + 2'
Persic floats in a tempting cross but Maignan comes out well to claim.
There will be two minutes of added time to end this first half.
Son shows a nice piece of footwork to create some space for himself but the play stalls and eventually Kulusevski's cross is tamely headed on goal by Perisic and collected by Maignan.
As the game nears the half-time interval, both sides have yet to create a clear-cut opening. Two shots each but none on target so far.
Spurs win another corner after some good passing combinations. Emerson and Kane combine well and the latter's cross deflects off a Milan defender and requires a reactionary boot from Maignan to divert it out for a corner. However, it is a wasteful set piece again as Kulusevski overhits the cross out for a goal kick.
Milan break and the ball arrives at the feet of Messias. The wing-back cuts inside but his left-footed effort is sliced well wide of the goal.
There is a pause in play as Emerson goes down off the ball. The wing-back is back up on his feet and looks like he will continue in the meantime.
Son plays it short and gets it back but his eventual cross is poorly overhit and flies out for a goal kick.
Spurs have their first corner of the game after Son's effort is deflected behind.
A second Spurs centre-back receives a yellow card and this time it is Lenglet after he catches Giroud with an elbow following an aerial challenge.
WIDE! It's a really well-worked set-piece routine and the ball finds Messias inside the box. His right-footed effort goes across Forster but wide of the post.
It's a rash, sliding challenge from Romero on Leao and the centre-back is the first person into the referee's book.
Hernandez, once again, finds himself high up on the left-hand side. The wing-back tries to find Giroud in the box but his low cross is blocked by the Spurs defence and Forster can collect the ball.
Lenglet is fortunate to escape a yellow card as he bundles over Leao with the Milan forward looking to burst forward.
Spurs make a meal of it trying to play out from the back and Milan win the ball but Hojbjerg does well to win it back and spring a counter-attack. Kane feeds Kulusevski and the ball is cut back to Emerson but the Brazilian's effort is deflected and then caught by Maignan.
Spurs have worked their way into this game and are now enjoying a positive spell of possession. Kane gets to the byline but his attempted cross is claimed well by Maignan.
Perisic finds himself in the central area and the ball is worked around the corner trying to find Kulusevski. Tomori uses his pace to beat the Swede to the ball but the play is brought back for a foul by Kalulu on Perisic.
Hojbjerg loses the ball in midfield but Krunic's pass over the top is overhit and Forster can claim the ball.
Hernandez drifts past Skipp and draws an early foul for the away side from halfway inside the Spurs half. Hernandez delivers but the home side deal with the set piece.
Spurs get this first half underway.
Milan have only ever won one of their 21 away games against English sides in all European competition (D7 L13), beating Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford in February 2005. They've lost their last three visits to London by an aggregate score of 9-1.
Pioli, meanwhile, makes three changes to his Milan side that lost to Fiorentina. Krunic returns from suspension and is back in the starting line-up, with Bennacer - having just returned from injury - dropping to the bench. In the forward line, Diaz and Leao are available again after injury and suspension respectively and replace Rebic and De Ketelaere.
Conte makes just one change to the Spurs side that lost against Wolves. Porro makes way at right-wing back with Emerson coming in to replace him.
MILAN SUBS: Ismael Bennacer, Matteo Gabbia, Fode Ballo-Toure, Antonio Mirante, Simon Kjaer, Alexis Saelemaekers, Alessandro Florenzi, Tommaso Pobega, Ante Rebic, Charles de Ketelaere, Divock Origi, Davide Calabria.
MILAN (3-4-2-1): Mike Maignan; Pierre Kalulu, Malick Thiaw, Fikayo Tomori; Junior Messias, Rade Krunic, Sandro Tonali, Theo Hernandez; Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao; Olivier Giroud.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Pedro Porro, Pape Sarr, Alfie Devine, Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez, Alfie Whiteman, Japhet Tanganga, Richarlison, Brandon Austin, Arnaut Danjuma.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-2-1): Fraser Forster; Cristian Romero, Clement Lenglet, Ben Davies; Emerson Royal, Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ivan Perisic; Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.
Milan, meanwhile have enjoyed a more encouraging recent run of form. Besides their weekend 2-1 defeat against Fiorentina, the Italian side had won four consecutive games in all competitions including their first-leg victory against Spurs. Stefano Pioli's side endured a rotten start to the year but will be seeking to back up their first-ever win against Tottenham with an increasingly-impressive second-leg performance to see themselves through to their first Champions League quarter-final since 2012.
Tottenham come into this encounter with topsy-turvy form in all competitions. The momentum from back-to-back wins against West Ham and Chelsea in the Premier League was halted by consecutive defeats against Sheffield United in the FA Cup and Wolves in the league. Antonio Conte is back in the dugout and he has work to do with his side trailing 1-0 on aggregate after their first-leg defeat in Milan.
Hello and welcome to this live commentary for the Champions League last-16 second-leg tie between Tottenham and Milan from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
