AC Milan semi-finalists for first time since 2007!

AC Milan progressed to the semi-finals of the Champions League by beating Napoli 2-1 on aggregate to book their place in the last four.

Napoli dominated the early exchanges but should have conceded early after being caught on the counter and conceding a penalty when Mario Rui tripped Rafael Leao. Giroud stepped up but placed his effort too close to goalkeeper Alex Meret who parried to safety. Napoli then lost Matteo Politano and Mario Rui to injury, before Milan broke the deadlock two minutes before half-time. A dazzling run from Leao ended with the forward laying the ball home to Giroud to tap home.

Napoli were second-best throughout but were granted a lifelife in the 80th minute after winning a penalty for handball by Fikayo Tomori. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia took the kick but Mike Maignan saved his attempt. Yet there was still time for more drama. Victor Osimhen headed past Maignan in stoppage time but it was too little, too late for the hosts, with AC Milan now ready to host a Champions League semi-final match at San Siro before the iconic venue is torn down.

Milan progress to the semi-finals and could end up playing rivals Inter for a place in the final. The Nerazzurri take on Benfica in their quarter-final at San Siro on Wednesday, leading 2-0 from the first leg.
