These Blues have gone further than previous squads of their team had done, moreover, with a lot of solidity and potential
The farthest Napoli had managed to get was the round of 16, three times, the closest in 2019/20, where they would lose to Barcelona on a 2 – 4 aggregate, a club that was already eliminated in the group stage of this campaign. After two years away, the team returns with the strongest squad in decades, also leading the local competition. What the manager, Luciano Spalletti, has done is a real madness, raising the club since he took over in the 2021/22 season to what they mean today at international level, putting teams like Liverpool, Ajax and now Milan to tremble.
The tactical bet is quite interesting, as having one of the most lethal attacking lines of these quarterfinals, they balance perfectly with the defense, which does its job well by arriving with only six goals conceded until the round of 16. The midfield is more than established, being the perfect transition in recovering the ball and coming out of their own half, occasions in which they have been successful with long attacks and counterattacks. They are definitely a team to be feared by the opponents in this Napoli vs Milan, who, moreover, are playing their comeback at home.
Can they reach the semifinals and, in addition to being crowned Serie A champions, also cause a surprise in the Champions League? We will see all that in this thrilling encounter.
It has been 16 seasons since the Rossoneri have seen Champions League glory, since then they have struggled to excel.
Milan have already won seven Champions League titles, in the last thirty years there have been three, in the 2000s alone they reached three finals, the last one being the one in which they would become owners of the gold medal for the last time. From 2010 to 2020 the farthest they would get would be the quarterfinals, and after the 2013/14 season they would be absent for seven years, until returning last season, where they would end up starting in the group stage.
Their local competition is costing them, however, they are among the top of the table, fighting at the same time to return next year to give the best face against the best clubs in the world. Since 2019 at the head of the club has been Stefano Pioli, and while it has been progressive and paused the positioning of the club, within three seasons of taking over they were lifting the Italian league trophy. And now, they are once again playing in the quarterfinals with Napoli vs Milan.
One of the flaws the club faces at a level like this is the difficulty to score goals and, although their goal has been clean sheets several times, the defensive approach must be more solid against this opponent if they want to avoid scoring, as it is also the strongest line on the field, over the center and attack.
