After losing the first leg of the last 16 match at San Siro, Spurs’ future in the Champions League is in jeopardy.
The only goal of the game was scored by Brahim Diaz, who took advantage of some shoddy Tottenham defending. The visitors failed to generate any meaningful chances throughout the entire game.
Conte was pleased with his team’s “intensity,” but he emphasized that everything is still up for grabs when they return to north London for the return leg the next month.
Conte said to BT sport: “I think it was better today. High intensity, I think we played against a good team. Don’t forget last season Milan won the league in Italy. I think to concede the first goal, we can do much better.
“Instead, we concede a goal after five minutes, then we tried to lead the game, to create situations to score. But I think Milan defended very well. We had opportunities and chances to score, but at the end we are talking about a defeat, a loss.
“The qualification, you have to play two games. That’s the first game away. The atmosphere was a fantastic atmosphere and I know San Siro, I know the difficulty to play in this atmosphere. For sure in the second game we play in our stadium and for sure the fans will create the right atmosphere to push us and overcome the obstacle of Milan.”
