LONDON – All the semi-finalists of the UEFA Champions League season 2022/23 will be revealed before this Thursday after the quarter-final second leg finished on Tuesday and Wednesday night.
On 18th April, Napoli will meet AC Milan again at home, seeking to at least equalize the 0-1 aggregate or perform a comeback in ninety minutes.
In this Italian civil war, the Serie A league leader has a disadvantage, as the guest team need only a draw to advance into the Last 4.
However, the Blue Squad has their best striker Victor Osimhen returned tonight. The Nigerian missed the first leg due to injury.
The seven times European winner is still the favoured side to beat Napoli for third time this month, including a 4-0 victory in the domestic league two weeks ago.
Real Madrid aims double kill
Chelsea challenges Real Madrid again at Stamford Bridge after their 0-2 loss in Spain last week.
The Blue Lions are struggling in poor condition, unable to win in their last six matches, while Frank Lampard lost all three games after his return as club manager.
The London giant was beaten by Brighton 1-2 at home in the English Premier League last Saturday, giving their players a worse spirit in tonight’s battle.
Madrid keeps on the track to defend their UCL trophy with a powerful squad in outstanding condition, including Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior, Luka Modric, Rodrygo and Toni Kroos, holding a high probability to win the title for their 15th time.
Bayern need miracle against City
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich could only hope for a miracle to overturn the 0-3 aggregate against Manchester City at Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
The German powerhouse seems uncompetitive to fight the EPL giant club last week, making the Blue Moons put one leg into the semi final already.
Bayern need at least three scores in ninety minutes while not conceding a goal by the visitors, giving them a mission impossible even with support from home fans.
Inter Milan Vs Benfica
In another quarter final match tomorrow, Inter Milan is expected to eliminate Benfica at San Siro.
Holding 1-0 aggregate, the Italian club aims to beat the Portuguese team again with their remarkable firepower, including Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko.
If Internazionale qualified, they will meet the winner between AC Milan or Napoli in the next stage, making there at least an Italian club featuring in the grand final.
EPL: Leeds 1-6 Liverpool
In the English Premier League matchday 31, Liverpool slaughtered Leeds United 6-1 in the away game, getting their first victory in the last five league games.
The Reds recovered in a top performance, conquering Elland Road Stadium easily with double scores from Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota, plus a goal from Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez.
Jurgen Klopp’s squad is still in eighth place in the EPL table after the game, nine points behind number four’s Newcastle.
Leeds is now in 16th position with 29 points, two points away from the relegation zone.
