Kim Min-jae who lost to AC Milan in the Napoli Champions League
will not be able to play in the second round
Kim Min-jae played full-time, but failed to prevent the team’s defeat. His team SSC Napoli (Italy) was once again caught by AC Milan (Italy).
Kim Min-jae started in the first leg of the quarterfinals between Napoli and AC Milan in the 2022-2023 UEFA Champions League in San Siro, Milan, Italy, on the 13th (Korea Standard Time). Napoli lost 0-1 after failing to make up for one goal in the counterattack crisis.
Napoli, which lost 0-4 in the Serie A regular league match in Italy on the 3rd, also lost to UCL and lost two consecutive games to AC Milan. He is leading the Serie A this season with 74 points (24 wins, 2 draws, and 3 losses), 16 points ahead of SS Laziovo (58 points), but he is particularly weak against AC Milan.
The loss in the first leg puts Napoli under pressure to win the second leg of the quarterfinals of the UCL at Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples on Wednesday by more than two goals.
Napoli pushed AC Milan from the beginning of the first half. However, he failed to penetrate AC Milan’s solid defense. Victor Osimen, the league’s leading scorer, had a large injury gap. Osimen has 21 goals and four assists in 23 Serie A matches this season and is Napoli’s leading goal scorer who scored four goals in five UCL matches 사설토토
Napoli, who failed to score despite the continued offensive in the first half, lost a point with a counterattack. In the 40th minute of the first half, AC Milan’s Brahim Diaz peeled off two Napoli players near the center line and passed them to Hapael Lean, and Lean connected them to Ishmael Benacer on the left side of the penalty box. Benacer scored the first goal with a left-footed shot.
Napoli also increased their offensive level in the second half. However, in the 29th minute of the second half, Andre-Frank Jambo Angusa was sent off for accumulated warnings, and he was in numerical inferiority, and eventually failed to score a comeback goal.
In the 33rd minute of the second half, Kim Min-jae was also warned, making it impossible to play in the second leg of the quarterfinals. When the referee declared a foul, Kim Min-jae protested with a somewhat radical gesture and received a yellow card. Kim Min-jae, who has already received two yellow cards in two UCL games, will not be able to play in the next game.
On this day, Kim Min-jae won all seven aerial ball competitions, succeeded in blocking shots, three interceptions, and one ground ball competition. Footmob, a soccer statistics site, gave Kim Min-jae 7.2 points, the second highest rating in the team, after Giovanni DiLorenzo (7.6). However, Napoli will face another crisis as they will not be able to play in the second leg of the UCL quarterfinals
