Inter and Milan will meet again after 18 years. Author: Reuters
The UEFA Champions League has already agreed on its semi-final after the top eight, which included Real Madrid, AC Milan, Manchester City and Inter, ended this Wednesday.
On the one hand, we will have the pleasure of enjoying the double Derby della Madoninna, as the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri will meet in this competition for the first time since the quarter-finals of the 2004-2005 season, when the defending seven-time champions won.
The Milanists got rid (2-1) of the powerful Napoli, who were leading the Serie A, but could hardly score a goal for the entire draw. Ismael Bennacer and Olivier Giroud scored goals for Stefano Pioli’s men.
For their part, Simone Inzaghi’s men beat (5:3) a very strong Benfica who, after losing 2:0 in the first leg, managed to close the second leg with a three-way draw, which, although not giving them a classification, He allowed them to leave with head held high. Nicolò Barella, who scored a goal in every match, was the star of the city of fashion.
Inter and Milan last met in the semi-finals of this tournament in the 2002-2003 school year, and the red-blacks won 3-0 en route to their sixth crown against Juventus on penalties.
Another part of the organizational chart shows the merengues, the current owners of the fair, and the city, which shows a fabulous state. It will be a repeat of last year’s semi-final, in which the Spaniards won (6-5) with a spectacular comeback.
Previously, the citizens and Madrid measured two more times. In the 2015-2016 campaign, the Spaniards also won in the semi-finals (1-0), and in the 2019-2020 season, the British smiled in the 1/8 finals (4-2). If we follow this pattern, luck should now smile on the cast led by Josep Guardiola, and not those commanded by Carlo Ancelotti.
One-sided duels will take place on May 9, and the second part of the story will take place on the 16th of the same month. City and Inter will close their respective qualifications.
