Departure 11-12 April, return 18-19 (the dates will be made official by 6 pm). Milan-Naples: we start at the San Siro, then we go to the Maradona. The nerazzurri play the first in Lisbon. Avoided crossings with the three battleships
Let’s face it: a benevolent urn that makes you dream. At least one Italian definitely in the semifinals and the three big battleships, Real, City and Bayern, on the other side of the scoreboard. Which means that the close encounter with one of the big three would eventually only reach the final. But let’s go in order.
The draw in Nyon thus composed the quarter-finals. On one side of the scoreboard Milan-Napoli and Benfica-Inter; on the other side Real Madrid-Chelsea and Manchester City-Bayern Monaco. So the three Italians are all on the same side with Benfica fourth wheel. The first leg of the quarter-finals is scheduled for 11-12 April, the return 18-19 (the dates will be made official by 6 pm): Milan will play the first match at home and then go to Maradona against Spalletti’s unstoppable Napoli. Inter will play the first in Lisbon and then receive Benfica at the San Siro. Curiosity: Milan and Naples will compete three times in 17 days (there is also the championship match), while the dream is naturally that of an all-Italian semi-final. It happened in 2003 with the Milan-Inter derby which is also an option this time, but in the middle there is the great Napoli which is dominating in Italy and scares Europe with its game and its quality.
The first leg of the semifinals is scheduled for 9-10 May, the return match on 16-17, but the interlocking of the balls in the urn launches into orbit the great suggestion of an Italian in the final in Istanbul (10 June). Hypothesis far from impossible since the so-called “unplayable” challenges are, in theory, all on the other side. Real-Chelsea but, above all, City-Bayern ensure a unique show. While our clubs, and maybe even Benfica, rub their hands.
