Spurs claim Milan scalp to reach Champions league quarters


Tottenham Hotspur continued their dream debut in the Champions League by reaching the quarter-finals.

Spurs held seven-times European champions AC Milan to a goalless draw at White Hart Lane in their last-16 return leg which, thanks to their one nil win in Italy last month, was good enough to see Harry Redknapp’s side through.

Joining the Londoners in the last eight is German side Schalke who came from a goal down to beat Valencia 3-1 in Gelsenkirchen to complete a 4-2 aggregate triumph.

Peruvian striker Jefferson Farfan scored twice and Mario Gavranovic hit a low drive to send the Bundesliga strugglers through to the quarters for the second time in the club’s history.

On Tuesday Barcelona beat Arsenal to qualify while Ukrainian champions Shaktahr Donetsk progressed at the expense of AS Roma.

Manchester United and Chelsea will look to join Spurs and strengthen the English contingent in the last eight when they play next week.
