Match Preview of AC Milan vs Napoli

On Wednesday, AC Milan will face Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Milan will aim to repeat their previous four-goal victory against Napoli and continue their form in the competition, while Napoli will look to maintain their momentum in Europe and build on their success in the Serie A.

Milan has had a mixed season defending their Scudetto, but they managed to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2012. They have been strong defensively in their last four Champions League fixtures, keeping clean sheets in all of them, and secured a slim 1-0 aggregate win against Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16.

Meanwhile, Napoli has been in superb form in both Serie A and the Champions League. They are the leading scorers in the competition with 25 goals, and they have been solid defensively, as evidenced by their 5-0 aggregate scoreline against Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16. However, they will be without the services of star striker Victor Osimhen, who is nursing an injury.

Milan's regulars are expected to return for the game, with Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud leading the attack. Napoli, on the other hand, may have to rely on Giacomo Raspadori to replace the injured Simeone in their front three.

The match promises to be an exciting clash between two Italian giants, with Milan hoping to maintain their dominance in all-Italian match-ups in continental competition, while Napoli aims to extend their winning streak at San Siro.

Who will win the match?

AC Milan and Napoli played out a goalless draw in their latest Serie A fixture. Napoli came into the match on the back of seven consecutive away wins in the league and were expected to continue their dominance over Milan at the San Siro. However, despite missing some key players, Milan's defense managed to blunt Napoli's attack and keep a clean sheet for the second time in two weeks. This sets up an exciting return fixture in Naples next week.
