Our U19s were knocked out by Olympiacos on penalties: we followed them on their journey to Greece, which ended disappointingly but didn't dent this special group's unity
It was a bitter away day, but not one to be forgotten. Like last season, the Nerazzurri Under-19s' trip to Greece for the UEFA Youth League playoffs ended with a disappointing defeat on penalties, but it also saw a great performance from the team and an experience that once again has strengthened Cristian Chivu's group.
We followed them, from Milano to Athens, on their journey, step by step: the departure, the build-up, the tension before the kick-off; then, 90 intense minutes of high quality football against Olympiacos at a historic stadium, the Geōrgios Karaiskakīs, the stadium of Piraeus.
Let's relive the most exciting moments of the trip to Greece.
