AC Milan vs Napoli LIVE faces this Tuesday 18 from 2:00 pm for the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Champions League 2022-23. This match will be played at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium and televised by ESPN (604 Movistar TV) and via streaming by Star +.
In the first leg last week at San Siro, Milan beat Napoli thanks to a goal from Algerian midfielder Ismael Bennacer in the first half.
How does Milan arrive?
The ‘rossonero’ team has in the Champions League the perfect opportunity to redirect a very irregular season in Serie A, in which it is fourth, fighting to settle in the top-4, and in which, like Napoli, with an eleven full of substitutes, tied on the last day, against Bologna.
But this Milan has shown that it does not need to feel good in the domestic championship to perform more than in the top continental club competition. The result in favor of the tie will allow him to face the game without the desire to be forced to score, as he did successfully against Tottenham in the knockout stages.
The coach Stefano Pioli will repeat the eleven that lined up in the first leg, with the Spanish Brahim Díaz and the Portuguese Rafael Leao as the big names of the moment, which in this clash will again have a capital importance, because they are the ones who will have to give, together with the Frenchman Olivier Giroud, oxygen to a Milan that will not mind giving up possession.

How does Napoli arrive?
A match that is open, with only one goal difference, but with certain complications for the Neapolitans. And it is that the expulsion of the Cameroonian Zambo Anguissa and the yellow that saw the South Korean Kim Min-Jae leave touched both the center of the field and the defense.
The Macedonian Elif Elmas or the French Tanguy Ndombele are the alternatives of the Italian coach Luciano Spalletti to replace Anguissa in the core, while it will be the Brazilian Juan Jesus who forms in the center of the back with the Kosovar Amir Rahmani
However, the good news for Spalletti is that he brings back Nigerian Victor Osimhen, one of his most influential men. The striker could not play the first leg due to an injury that kept him away from the pitch since the end of March and that was a hard blow for the Neapolitans in the first leg, who lost the energy and the scoring nose of their striker.
A new chapter to write together – are you ready? 🔥
