UCL: How AC Milan bundled Osimhen’s Napoli out of the Champions League


AC Milan booked a place in this years UEFA Champions League, after playing out a draw with another Serie A side Napoli at Naples on Tuesday night.

Rafael Leos mesmerising solo assist helped to add a 11 away draw to AC Milans UEFA Champions League (UCL) quarterfinal home leg triumph.


Napolis cinderella run in the UCL ended after playing out a 11 draw with AC Milan in the reverse fixture thereby making the away side go three straight games unbeaten against Napoli.

Fans at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona were always going to make life difficult for AC Milan, and the thunderous atmosphere they created saw the pitch shrouded in smoke by kickoff.

That wasnt the only thing that blinded the visitors either, as Napoli came racing out of the blocks, with Matteo Politano twice causing problems by cutting in from the right, although his closest effort was dragged a yard wide.


However, he and fellow star performer Mrio Rui were hauled off injured during the first half, as the tide began to turn towards Stefano Piolis side.

After missing a penalty in the encounter, AC Milans Oliver Giroud scored to put the Visitor ahead before Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen equalized in the dying minute of the game but his goal couldnt save Napoli.


The games first major moment saw Olivier Giroud take centre stage, with the veteran Frenchman stepping up to the spot after Leo was scythed down in the box, only for Alex Meret to palm away his tame spotkick.

Result meant AC Milan will progress to the Semifinal of the competition for the first time in many years.
