Alessandro Costacurta, who played an active role as an Italian legend with AC Milan as a player, stuck out his tongue at Kim Min-jae’s great performance.

Napoli won 2-0 against Frankfurt in the first leg of the round of 16 of the 2022-23 season European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) held at Deutsche Bangpe Parc in Frankfurt, Germany at 5:00 am (Korean time) on the 22nd. This brought Napoli closer to advancing to the quarterfinals. 스포츠토토

Napoli raised the atmosphere by running on a 7-game winning streak in the league. He went on an expedition to Germany, aiming for ‘Scudetto (winning Italian Seria A)’ as well as ‘Big Year (UCL championship trophy)’. As the opponent was last season’s Europa League (UEL) champion Frankfurt, it was forbidden to be vigilant.

Napoli started the game in a 4-3-3 formation. The attacking line consisted of Hvica Kvarachhelia, Viktor Osimen and Irving Lozano. Fiort Zielinski, Stanislav Lobotka and Andre-Frank Jambo Angusa sortied in the midfield. The four backs were held up by Matthias Olivera, Kim Min-jae, Amir Rahmani, and Giovanni Di Lorenzo. The goal was guarded by Alex Meret.

It was an official match to be played in three days, but Napoli was not shaken. In the 36th minute of the first half, a penalty kick (PK) was missed, but he continued to pull the reins. In the 40th minute of the first half, Rossano’s grounder cross from the side was easily pushed by Osimen to score the opening goal.

After entering the second half, the game went downhill. Frankfurt striker Randall Colo Muani was sent off for a dangerous tackle. Napoli, who had a numerical advantage, widened the gap in the 20th minute of the second half with Di Lorenzo’s key goal. The rest of the time, Elif Elmas, Tanguy Ndombele, Matteo Politano, and Giovanni Simeone were substituted in turn and won the victory.

South Korea’s center back Kim Min-jae was also great. He fulfilled all the roles he could play as a central defender with reckless defense and stable links. The football statistics media ‘Sofa Score’ gave Kim Min-jae a rating of 8.4 points. Even if you look at the total number of players on both teams, they are in second place.

Italian legend Costacurta also stuck out his tongue. According to ‘Arena Napoli’, Costacurta said through ‘Sky Sports’ after the match, “If I were coach Luciano Spalletti, I would go into the locker room and shake hands with Min-jae Kim. I will start by praising him.” It meant that we would celebrate the victory by meeting Min-jae Kim first.

Even the Italian legend said, “If it were me, I would start by shaking hands with KIM.”
