Milan’s quarterfinal opponent for the Coppa Italia is now set.

Milan will face off against Napoli in the next round of the Coppa Italia, with the match set to be played on January 30th at the San Siro. Carlo Ancelotti said that Napoli intend on taking the Coppa seriously and want to win it, meaning that Milan can’t play like they did against Sampdoria and expect to win the next round.

Two matches remain in the round of 16 that will be played today, with Roma facing Virtus Entella and Cagliari facing fellow Serie A side Atalanta.
