Italian Serie A leader SSC Napoli met AC Milan, the same league rival, in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League.
On the 17th at 8pm (Korean time), UEFA held the draw for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Napoli challenged to advance to the semifinals against AC Milan of the same Serie A. Napoli, who reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time in the history of the club, is determined to advance to the semifinals without losing because the current trend is very good.
With Napoli facing AC Milan in the draw, the two teams have faced each other three times in three weeks of April. The two teams were scheduled to meet in the 28th round of Serie A at 3:45 am on the 3rd, before the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal scheduled for April 12th. After that, after the 29th round of Serie A, the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals will be played. The second leg of the quarterfinals awaits next week.
The 28th round of Serie A will be held at Diego Maradona Stadium, home of Napoli. The first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals will be held at the San Siro Stadium, home of AC Milan. The second leg will then be played at Napoli’s home ground. 메이저놀이터
This match-up also raises expectations for a confrontation between Kim Min-jae and AC Milan’s world-class strikers. Kim Min-jae has to face AC Milan’s Olivier Giroud and ‘Lion King’ Zlatan Ibrahimovic. In particular, I remember giving Giroud a goal in the first confrontation in September of last year. At the time, Giroud had succeeded in scoring by evading Kim Min-jae and receiving a cross from the left flank.
Kim Min-jae, who has become a target of love calls from big clubs in Europe thanks to his tremendous performance this season, will be put to the real test through the quarter-finals of the Champions League. If he goes over AC Milan and reaches the semi-finals, he can be recognized as one of the best centre-backs in Europe. In a situation where the possibility of winning Serie A is very high for Napoli, the quarterfinal match against AC Milan, a ‘well-known opponent’, is very important in order to rise to the highest possible position in the Champions League.
