Bale could make Milan return

Bale missed Spurs’ 1-0 victory in the round of 16 first leg tie at

the San Siro on Tuesday due to a back injury. But Redknapp appears

confident that the Wales star will be fit for the second leg at

White Hart Lane on Wednesday, March 9. Redknapp, speaking at the

re-staged Newbury race meeting on Friday, said: “I’m really looking

forward to it. “Hopefully we’ll have Bale back, and him and (Aaron)

Lennon have got such pace.” Peter Crouch’s goal gives Spurs the

edge going into the return but Redknapp knows it will not be easy

to book a quarter-final spot. “I’m sure they will come back at us,”

he warned, “but it was a fantastic night.”
