All three Italian teams were incredibly lucky in yesterday’s Champions League quarter-final draw. At least one of them will be in the semi-final and they can all dream about the final.
Milan will face Napoli in the quarter and the winner of that game will take on Benfica or Inter. It’s a remarkable draw given that, on the other side of the knockout tree, there are Real Madrid, Man City, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
On the front page, Gazzetta Dello Sport stated the following: “Champions League draw: Milan, Inter and Napoli can dream about the final. An autostrada opens up for the Italian teams, the big ones are on the other side.”
Tuttosport had a similar angle: “Champions League smile, Serie A in the semi-final. Milan-Napoli in the quarters, then another derby? The Rossoneri are in action tonight against Udinese.”
Corriere Dello Sport cited their interview with Fabio Capello: “Napoli are strong enough to reach the final. Milan can only beat them with Theo and Leao in the best form.”
