This is it, a decade of sweat and blood to be defined at this precise moment. Our wake-up call was that big defeat against Napoli. In the 10s Milan was a mid-table club, Milan could at least compete with Juve and Roma but Napoli and Sarri were a certain defeat. Napoli got Diego’s spirit he will be the twelfth player, they wrote history already reaching this stage, and they want more, Osi and Kvara and Rui are worth double. Milan has a 7 on their arm, the colors of a Champion. Maldini had plenty of time to tell them what… Read more »

Tense but I believe we are going to go through going to b a tough match

Raven

All you gotta say is Forza Milan

K.caesar

I really pray Tomori doesn’t give Osimhen a penalty.. Pioli needs to attack strongly in d first 15-20mins in other to try and break Napoli’s spirit, if we defend deeply it will be a big disaster

Raven

Enjoy the show

I think we lost this tie in the first leg when we not only parked the bus and failed to score against a 10 man napoli team, we almost even conceded. The worst part is.. it gave Napoli the moral boost that they now know how pathetic we can be against high press. Lets hope leao/diaz pulls out a few rabbits out of their hats to save us. The team looks.. scared. No idea why.

Forza Milan.

That’s how we played the first leg as well in the beginning stage then we pick until the red card and then we lost it as well but let’s pray for favour here

milan4lyf

True. Hoping for the best.

milan4lyf

This miss is gonna cost us. Kessie’s absence is definitely stinging us hard. We really need a proper CDM this season to start playing 4-3-3 while ALL of our mids are attack minded.

Excuse me, Krunic came by and said ” The President was overrated”

I taught Theo was the pk taker what the hell giroud unbalanced this game now with a goal what’s all this.it’s a more pressure for Milan now that am sure off I pray just pray it didn’t come back to hurt them

milan4lyf

Great .. luck is all in Napoli’s favor today it seems lol

K.caesar

Giroud missed a penalty and Leao almost gave away a penalty! It’s going to be a long long night

milan4lyf

Fun fact..

Napoli completed 121 passes and we completed only 61.

possession?

51% to 49%.

Do you know what that means?
we CANT even pass.

If we lose, we are the ones to blame. We really need a new assistant coach to Pioli who actually knows what he’s doing and improve the technical aspects of our pathetic technical skills in game!

Wait… Why is Origi warming up?

Pioli… Please dont do this shit!

milan4lyf

THIS IS WHY LEAO IS IRREPLACABLE.

dan

Just pay the kid. Yes, he’s lazy sometimes but when he’s on, he does more than some of the other guys do in 90mins

dan

Just shut up and pay Leao. When he’s on, he’s ON!

milan4lyf

AMEN !

Ronaldinho80

Bravo Leao 100percent his goal

Raven

We are dominating and people are just starting to talk shit.

Enjoy the show guys, Milan is winning!

As time passes Calabria is fading a little bit. But I can honestly say this has been his best game in a while. First 45 mins he had kvaradona neutralized .

Raven

Messias? OK now I’m shitting my pants

dan

Fresh legs bro . I wouldve put the saladman but for 35 mins or so , i expect messias to run his socks off

K INC

Why the fuck is Origi coming on!?

Jay

Calabria is taking too much time block in kavatshalia by the time he is into box

Ted

And yet he is doing awesome tonight. Why are you all just waiting for him to slip? Chill.

K INC

Ahhh Tomori

K INC

Give every penny we have to Leao and Mike

milan4lyf

SUPER MIKE… SUPER MIKE.. .SUPER MIKE

Ronaldinho80

Mike is magician no doubt about it

milan4lyf

YESSS

YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

MILAN MILAN MILAN

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Now only Inter stands in the way!

This is exactly what these Shitty racist Napoli fans deserve.

FORZA MILAN!

K INC

Need to stop subbing off our stars before the game is done, imagine going into overtime without Leao. Now to send Inter packing.

milan4lyf

This should’ve been a 3-1 game is we didn’t miss the chances we had. Absolute masterclass in defending except that one Tomori Slip. Calabria.. What a performance. Just Shut down Krava Completely. I don’t think I have seen Krava pass through our captain EVEN ONCE! And Magic Mike.. We now know he is literally the only one who can be compared to Courtois! We can seriously dream of Istanbul at the moment! As for Leao… if we have any dumbasses who appears on a Milan blog to complain about Leao, whoever they are.. we all can safely say they are… Read more »

Honestly, it’s sad to see kvaradona look so ordinary any time he plays against Milan. Is this the Victor they were clamouring for? Yeah he got a goal but throughout the game, our defense had him in their pockets. What can I say about Mike? Thank you Donna! Leao faded towards the end but what a run it was to set up Giroud… I kinda didn’t like the fact that we allowed Napoli play a lot with the ball but I guess the end justifies the means. I think we can kick inter out but I don’t want us to… Read more »

Good game. I see a lot of people complaning that we play to defensive. If this was seria A i would have agreed. But CL knocout stage is diferent. I think that playing defensive with counters actualy benifits us in CL. First because we are not the favorites and don’t have the quality to openly go blow for blow with other big teams. Second, because we are not the favorites other teams play more openly against us, which makes it perfect for hiting them with counters. And third, Pioli tactics are best on counter attacks. He struggles tacticly when we… Read more »

This team, what’s not to love about this bunch! There are, in my opinion, three players that deserve a special mention in last night’s win. Three tireless silent heroes – Calabria, Tonali and Theo. They worked their hearts out last night for whole 90 minutes.

Omoboriowo

Forza Milan let’s go instabul for the final great team spirit good defending Forza Milan for Life

Milancrazyfan

Only posting now, was enjoying that win and performance. What a miracle team. Leao is just wow. Makes it look so easy. Giroud fought like a true warrior for every ball. Calabria played like maldini the 3 games agaisnt napoli. Diaz helped in defense a lot, especially agaisnt the georgian. Thro what a player, best in the world for that position. Magic mike is just magic, thank you dollarruma. Krunic superb in his dm postion, became a headache for napoli. Ben and tonali ran their so ks off all game, true warriors. Tomorri was awesome too, kjaer a real general… Read more »

You missed the part about Cardinale being an as-hole and not giving Maldini any budget for this crucial stage.

We are on thin ice in the league, we may lose CL next season and that’s on him. Everyone is overachieving, the only one holding this team down is the owners.
