Former Employers vs Current Clubs

An Italian Accent

The other half of the draw also has a distinctly Italian accent, with seven-time European champions AC Milan taking on runaway Serie A leaders Napoli. Whoever emerges from that tie could then meet Inter provided the Nerazzurri get past Benfica in the last eight.

No Seedings or Country Protection

There was a free draw for the quarter-finals, meaning no seedings or country protection, with ties numbered 1–4 for the semi-final draw that followed.

An Administrative Reversal

Because AC Milan and Inter share the same stadium for home matches and cannot play on the same night, nor at home within 24 hours, Inter’s quarter-final tie with Benfica was reversed. AC Milan, as Italian champions, had priority.

A ‘Home’ Side for the Final

Yes, for administrative purposes. The winners of semi-final 2 (Real Madrid / Chelsea vs Man City / Bayern) will be the ‘home’ side for the Champions League final.

Istanbul’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium

The 2022/23 Champions League final will take place on Saturday 10 June 2023 at Istanbul’s Atatürk Olympic Stadium, venue for Liverpool’s famous comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2005 showpiece.
