Match facts

Liverpool

  • Liverpool and AC Milan have only met on two previous occasions in European competition, with both of them coming in the final of the UEFA Champions League. The Reds won 3-2 on penalties in 2005, before losing 1-2 in normal time in 2007.
  • After winning six of their first seven home games against Italian sides in European competition (L1), Liverpool have gone winless in the most recent two - drawing 1-1 with Napoli in 2019-20 and losing 0-2 to Atalanta in 2020-21, during the last two campaigns.
  • Since the start of the 2017-18 season, only two teams have won more games than Liverpool (25) in the UEFA Champions League - Bayern Munich (31) and Manchester City (30). Indeed, they are also the only two teams who have scored more goals than Liverpool (95) in the same period (Bayern 112, City 96).

AC Milan

  • AC Milan have only won one of their last 13 games against English opponents in European competition (D4 L8), with that lone victory coming against Arsenal in this competition in February 2012 (4-0). Interestingly, all but one of the 13 games in this run have come at the Round of 16 stage, either in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League.
  • AC Milan have only won two of their last eight games in European competition (D4 L2), all of which came in the UEFA Europa League last season. This will be their first game in the UEFA Champions League since March 2014, when they were eliminated by Atlético de Madrid over two legs in the Round of last 16.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned from four months out with a knee injury on Sunday, but will miss the Champions League opener against Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday; the 39-year-old has a problem with his Achilles

Predictions

With both of these European giants making fast starts to their domestic title challenges and seeking to carry that momentum over to continental competition, a tense and closely-fought affair should be in store on Merseyside.

There may be brief but well-documented history between Liverpool and AC Milan in the Champions League, but we are struggling to see either side gaining the upper hand and are backing a score draw in Wednesday's opener.

Final Score – 1 : 1
