AC Milan v Napoli Preview
It’s the clash of the Italian giants as the seven time UCL champions AC Milan host the first time quarter -finalists Napoli at the San Siro.
AC Milan face Napoli for the second time this month, with the Rossoneri thrashing the Serie A league leaders 4-0. Despite the result, a 22 point deficit and an exit from the Copa Italia means UCL and a top four finish is high on the priority list for the Italian side. Stefano Pioli’s men have been tight at the back, keeping clean sheets in all of their last four Champions League matches. This included a 1-0 aggregate win in the round of 16 against Tottenham Hotspurs who were restricted to just 5 shots on target across the two legs, having 0 big chances.
However, the test is stern this time around for that Milan defense as they face the tournament’s top scorers Napoli. Sitting comfortably on top of the Serie A table, the Neapolitans will be looking to enter their first ever UCL semi-final by defeating the bitter rivals from Milan.
In addition to their incredible attacking form, the side from Naples have been rock solid at the back and will be optimistic of keeping AC Milan out, who have been struggling to put the ball in the back of the net. However, with their top scorer V Osimhen out with an injury, they’ll have to rely on the services of Kvaratakhelia to give them the atta king impetus they require. Napoli will also focus on the fact that Milan having won just three of their last 16 knockout games in the Champions League, giving them the psychological edge in the tie.
