Napoli vs AC Milan: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Both sides dropped points in Serie A at the weekend but all eyes are on the Champions League quarter-final second leg between AC Milan and Napoli in Campania.


With the Rossoneri taking a slight advantage to Naples, the 2022/23 Champions League quarter-final second-leg of Napoli vs AC Milan at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona is widely anticipated across the continent.

A goal from Ismael Bennacer at the end of the first half in the Stadio San Siro last week gave the seven-time European champions victory, but runaway Serie A leaders Napoli will hope to reassert their domestic in the return tie.

However, during Milan’s last visit at the beginning of April, Stefano Pioli’s men ran riot over the Partenopei, as a Rafael Leao brace and a goal each from Brahim Diaz and Alexis Saelemaekers secured an unexpected 4-0 win.

Napoli vs AC Milan: Predicted line-ups

Both sides fielded significantly weakened teams for their Serie A Matchday 30 fixtures, resulting in the Rossoneri dropping two points against Bologna and the Partenopei playing out an uneventful draw with Hellas Verona.

Therefore, Milan coach Pioli should have no trouble starting the same XI that overcame Napoli at the San Siro. Partenopei tactician Luciano Spalletti must replace Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa and Kim Min-Jae, with the duo suspended for respective red and yellow cards picked up in the first leg, but Victor Osimhen is fit again.

Napoli predicted XI vs AC Milan (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Rui; Elmas, Lobotka, Zielinski; Lozano, Osimhen, Kvaratskhelia.

AC Milan predicted XI vs Napoli (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez; Tonali, Krunic; Diaz, Bennacer, Leao; Giroud.
