First Champions League semifinal appearance for AC Milan in 16 years
Mediaset played a clip of Ruud Gullit setting up a goal at Napoli in 1988 after the game, showing it to Leao.
Leao responded in shock, “It’s the same.” Going after players is what I try to do because that’s how I can make a difference. I look for my teammates if I’m unable to score. There, I noticed Giroud.
Since winning the most recent and seventh European championship in 2007, Milan has not participated in a Champions League semifinal.
Victor Osimhen scored in stoppage time, but it wasn’t enough for Napoli, who are faltering as the end of their incredible season draws near.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia also had a penalty saved with 10 minutes left, a miss that doomed his team to defeat. Luciano Spalletti’s once free-flowing team is struggling for goals.
Despite being on the verge of winning their first league championship since 1990, Napoli’s European adventure came to a disappointing conclusion on Tuesday after being given the easier side of the draw.
Real Madrid also advanced to the semifinals of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea, capping a decisive 4-0 victory overall and effectively ending the season of the struggling London club.
The home team entered the game at Stamford Bridge with form and history against them and Frank Lampard back in charge for a second stint.
They got off to a strong start, playing aggressive football, but regretted two huge missed opportunities that would have put pressure on the defending champions.
When Rodrygo scored for the Spanish powerhouses in the 58th minute, Chelsea had to pay for their wastefulness. With 10 minutes left, the Brazilian doubled his previous total.
Since Lampard replaced Graham Potter as caretaker manager earlier this month, Chelsea, the 2021 European champions, have dropped all four of their games.
