Before the clash against Napoli in the quarterfinals of the Champion League, the honorary vice president of AC Milan Franco Baresi, seems to have found the solution to try to stop the Neapolitan striker Victor Osimhen .
“We are proud and happy to be here. Now we have an Italian derby and we are a little sorry because one will be eliminated. We respect Napoli and will face them in the best way, knowing that they are strong, but we can do well. We will see. I think that, as you know, when there is a cross, a defender should not be attracted by the ball, but look at his opponent and stay close to him. Often even a small touch is enough to affect the attacker. Osimhen is very strong, he can score in any way, we must do everything to keep him away from the area. Napoli have a great conscience, it is not only Osimhen, we must respect them,” said Milan legend Baresi to Sky Sport Italia.
AC Milan lost their only meeting with Napoli this season, facing a 2-1 defeat at the San Siro in September. They will meet again at the Stadio Maradona in the first game after the March break. Napoli are the current Serie A leaders, 18 points ahead of second-placed Inter and 20 ahead of the Rossoneri.
