Serie A’s European competition continues to be strong.
All four surviving teams from the 2022-23 season European Football Federation Champions League (UCL), Europa League (UEL), and Europa Conference League (UECL) have all been decided. Among them, there are as many as 5 Serie A teams.
This is the first record. According to the football statistics media ‘Opta’, it is the first time in the history of European football that 5 Serie A teams have advanced to the semifinals of the European competition.
First, the ‘Milan Brothers’ confirmed their advance to the UCL semifinals. AC Milan drew 1-1 with Napoli on the 19th in the first leg of the UCL quarterfinals. With a combined score of 2-1 in the 1st and 2nd games, they succeeded in advancing to the semifinals.
Inter Milan immediately followed. In the second leg of the quarterfinals, Portugal’s Benfica drew 3-3. With a combined score of 5-3, they won a ticket to the quarterfinals. 스포츠토토
Coincidentally, the Milano brothers were fighting to advance to the finals. It is the first time in 20 years that Inter Milan and AC Milan have met in the UCL semifinals. In addition, the two teams meet in the semifinals, and Serie A unconditionally produces a team that advances to the final.
AS Roma and Juventus then clash in the UEL semifinals. AS Roma lost 0-1 in the first leg of the quarterfinal against Feyenoord on the 14th. However, in the second game on the 21st, they won 4-1 and succeeded in a double electrode. Juventus overcame Sporting (Portugal) with a combined score of 2-1 in the first and second games. Like UCL, UEL has also completed the semi-final matchup between Serie A teams.
