All eyes will be on the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium in Naples for Napoli Vs AC Milan Champions League cracker.
The two Serie A clubs go head-to-head in a crunch Champions League quarterfinal return leg.
Napoli have smashed the Serie A title race in style this season leading the charge to claim the trophy for the first time in decades but it appears the Azzuri are set to hit their Champions League death knell against AC Milan.
The first leg was a heated boilerplate at the San Siro, closely fought but finally won by Milan club with a marginal scoreline leaving the tie finely poised.
The semi-final ticket is still widely open after the seven time champions managed just a narrow 1-0 win over the Serie A title hopefuls and Champions League quarterfinal first-timers.
Recently, Napoli seem to have lost the spark and are winless in their last three games in all competitions, two of which, have been a defeat against AC Milan.
More worrying is their punctured strike force that has failed to find the back of the net in three successive games, the first time that has occured this season.
The Azzurri were pummelled 4-0 at San Siro in the league before they settled for 1-0 Champions League defeat to the same opponent at the same venue.
Their barren scoresheet lingered in the Serie A clash against relegation-trapped Hellas Verona at home. Hence, Luciano Spalletti will be under pressure to weather the poor form of recent when taking on the Serie A and Champions League heavyweights.
In contrast to the adventurous Rossoneri, AC Milan are the most experienced and successful Champions League club from the Serie A. They have scored 6 goals in their last three games with five of those goals coming against Napoli.
Their last Serie A clash against Bologna ended squares as they settled for a 1-1 draw
AC Milan will head to Estadio Armando Maradona Stadium as a better side but they will face a uphill task against Napoli.
A win for AC Milan will see the Rossoneri bagged a triple win against the Scudetto hopefuls which will break a 1994 jinx.
The last time Napoli lost three times in a season was in 1994 to Lazio but they are unbeaten in their last 12 home games in all competitions this season .
