Tottenham Hotspur will be the happier side after an entertaining first half at the San Siro. Although Spurs were denied a clear penalty, they have more or less nullified the threat posed by AC Milan's attacking talents, and they've also seriously tested the Rossoneri defence a number of times with a series of teasing crosses. Aaron Lennon and Peter Crouch are clearly worrying Massimiliano Allegri's side, with Lennon in particular dominating the game on Tottenham's right. Despite a reasonable amount of possible openings, there've been relatively few real efforts on goal - the goalies have pulled off some fine saves, but they've mostly come off crosses rather than shots.
We also have an update on Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati, who was withdrawn in the 18th minute due to a head injury. Abbiati has been confirmed to be suffering from concussion and has been taken to hospital for precautionary scans. He is, however, conscious and talking, according to one of the medics who treated him after he collapsed in the penalty box after a series of aerial challenges with Tottenham players. Abbiati was replaced by Marco Amelia, who didn't have much to do until a long-range effort by Rafael van der Vaart forced him to tip over the bar in the 41st minute.
