Milan takes first-leg advantage in Champions League as Osimhen absence hurts Napoli

Milan take a crucial 1-0 lead over Napoli in their Champions League quarterfinal, thanks to Ismael Bennacer’s left-foot strike in the 40th minute, after a tough defensive battle against the Serie A leaders. Napoli dominated possession, but failed to convert numerous chances, including a missed opportunity from Khvicha Kvaratskhelia at 52 seconds. Furthermore, Napoli lost midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to a sending off in the second-half, leaving them with ten men, and him suspended for the second leg. Milan’s win keeps alive the prospect of a Milan derby in the semifinals, with city rivals Internazionale winning their first-leg against Benfica in Lisbon. The second leg of the quarterfinals takes place next Tuesday at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona in Naples.
