‘AC Milan main striker’ Giroud, Achilles tendon problem… UCL Quarterfinals 2nd Leg Uncertain
AC Milan (Italy), which is challenging to advance to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League after 16 years, is in an emergency. Striker Olivier Giroud, who is in charge of the team’s forefront, complained of discomfort in his Achilles tendon, and it is unclear whether he will participate in the second leg of the quarterfinals.
AC Milan will play the 2022-23 season UEFA Champions League quarterfinal second leg against Napoli (Italy) at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples, Italy at 4:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th.
AC Milan won 1-0 in the first leg of the quarterfinals held at home on the 13th토스카지노, and even if they draw at least a draw in the second leg, they can advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.
However, AC Milan was placed in a situation where Giroud, who accounts for a large part of the team’s strength, could not be used in the second leg of the quarterfinals.
Italian media Gazzetta reported on the 17th that “Giruru suffered a problem with his Achilles tendon due to a blow he received while colliding with defender Kim Min-jae of the opposing team in the first leg of the quarterfinals against Napoli.”
Giroud played the full 90 minutes against Napoli. However, in the away game in Bologna on the 15th, he was only listed on the replacement list and could not play.
If Giroud disappears, AC Milan will inevitably weaken its power. Although they lead by one goal, AC Milan also needs a goal considering the offensive power of Napoli, which boasts more than two goals per game (66 goals in 30 matches) in Serie A this season.
In the first match against Napoli, although Giroud failed to score a goal, he fought for the ball in the air at the forefront and added strength to the attack by linking the ball to his teammates.
While AC Milan has troubles in the front line, Napoli is smiling at the return of Victor Osimen. It is nice to see Osimen’s return in a situation where Kim Min-jae is warned in the first game and Frank Jambo Angusa is unable to play in the second game due to a penalty for leaving.
Osimen, the league’s leading scorer with 21 goals this season, has missed three games in a row through injury. Osimen, who focused on treatment and rehabilitation, was substituted in the second half of the match against Hellas Verona on the 16th and announced a match against AC Milan.
