Defending champions Milan have found themselves drawn against Serie A leaders Napoli in the Champions League quarter-finals, a match that’ll capture the eyes of the nation.
The Rossoneri booked their spot in the quarter-finals after edging out a 1-0 aggregate win over Tottenham in one of the more lacklustre Round of 16 ties, whilst Napoli flew to a 5-0 aggregate win over Eintracht Frankfurt, showing their usual electricity and flair.
Milan and Napoli are two teams who were left on the sidelines during Juventus’ decade of dominance but now both have risen up the rankings to taste glory in Serie A, with the Partenopei ready to lift their first Scudetto in over three decades, taking it off their counterparts in Lombardy.
Sky Sports Italia revealed how the Milan squad reacted when their Champions League draw with Napoli was confirmed, discussing a state of anticipation and excitement in Milanello.
Directors Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara were overwatching Stefano Pioli’s training session and instantly told the Milan squad that they’d drawn Napoli.
