Tottenham Hotspurs have been a great side over the past few seasons and with the new White Hart Lane complete, things are expected to be great for the North London club. This week they will continue their preseason as they take on AC Milan in a pre-season friendly. Both clubs will want to do well in this match since the regular season is less than one month away and time is running out to get prepared.
AC Milan got the good news that their Europa League ban was lifted which means the Italian side is free to compete in Europe this season. While the past decade has been rough for the Red and Black, AC Milan are one of the biggest clubs in the history of European football and they will be desperate to return to the glory days of the past. It has been a decent preseason for the Italian side as they got a draw with Manchester United in the last game. This will be a great chance for the team to get a win and they will want to get that result to get some momentum heading into the regular season.

On the other side of the coin, Tottenham will want to beat AC Milan. This will be the last game that the Spurs play before the season starts in England and they will want to win to ensure they get are in a winning mentality. Spurs will have the luxury of playing many of their top players that have returned to the team so they should be near full strength for this game. That should be massive and enough to get the English side a win in this fixture.
All in all, I am expecting Tottenham to win. They are the better side and will be more focused since their season starts sooner. This should be entertaining since we will see two teams with talented players that will play with freedom. I expect this to be a high scoring game.
