An exciting game expected from both legs
AC Milan vs Napoli is expected to be an amazing game. This will be the first ever meeting between the two sides in the Champions League and it is going to be one to enjoy for sure. It was 13 years ago to be exact the last time the last time an Italian team lifted the famous trophy. It has been many years where Italian teams have not consistently been at their best. Now that Serie A is slowly being rebuilt and Italian teams are now one of Europe’s top tier. This is expected to be a clash that goes right to the wire. We could also see a great battle between defense and attack with AC Milan being more defensive and Napoli being more attacking.
AC Milan may be underdogs but they could shock Napoli
AC Milan will go into this clash having beaten Napoli 4-0 on April 2nd. The Rossoneri absolutely tore Napoli apart and were just too good for them on the day. Leao proved in that game he is worth €80 million and why the likes of Chelsea, Real Madrid and Manchester United all want him. He has a total of 11 goals and 6 assists in all competitions this season. He guided Milan to their first title since 2011. AC Milan are in 4th place but hold on to it slightly as Inter is a point behind them. AC Milan have the first game at home which can be an advantage. Although it could be a disadvantage considering that if they slip up in the first leg Napoli have the upper hand.
Napoli to rely on their attacking quality to beat Napoli
Napoli are enormous favorites to play the Champions League final. This could be their first ever Champions League final and they will want to make sure they give their fans something to remember. They are also on their way to winning their first ever Scudetto since the days of Maradona. They currently lead the table by 16 points with 9 games to go. So it is very safe to say they have the title in their hands already. Napoli’s star studded attack definitely gives the Rossoneri plenty to worry about. Napoli has 93 goals in 38 games this season. The likes of Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia are having the season of their lives. Osimhen currently leads the scoring charts in Italy and is likely to walk away with his first golden boot. Napoli will hope to put their 4-0 loss to Milan behind them and advance to the semis
