Napoli vs AC Milan Match Preview and Team News
The Blues have a potent offense as they lead the Champions League with 25 goals. Napoli has plenty of goal-scoring alternatives as ten other members of the squad have found the back of the net in Champions League plays thus far. Midfielder Piotr Zielinski and forward Giacomo Raspadori also have converted four times for the Blues, with the former tallying in the team’s last UCL match – a 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on March 15. Napoli also received production from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in his first season with the club after he spent the previous four in the Russian Premier League. Hirving Lozano is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance. Victor Osimhen, who has scored eighteen goals for Napoli in Serie A this season, has only scored two goals in the Champions League this season, but the 24-year-old would lead the line here after scoring in his last seven Serie A games.
The Rossoneri are hoping for a repeat performance after keeping a Napoli side that was missing Osimhen off the scoreboard in their Serie A showdown on Apr. 2. AC Milan has recorded four consecutive clean sheets in UCL play and hasn’t yielded a goal in their last two Italian league matches. The Rossoneri are led offensively by Olivier Giroud, who has scored 12 goals across all competitions this season. The 36-year-old French striker converted in Milan’s 2-1 loss to Napoli in the Serie A on Sept. 18 and leads the club with four goals in the Champions League. Portuguese forward Rafael Leao leads AC Milan in league play with ten goals, two of which came against Napoli in their last meeting, while Spanish forward Brahim Diaz provided the only goal in their Round of 16 tie against Tottenham. Charles De Ketelaere finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Rafael Leao is a great player, and he creates a lot of problems for his opponents.
