Liverpool vs AC Milan: Head to Head Preview
Whenever the names of Liverpool and AC Milan are mentioned in the same breath, we are teleported back in time to Istanbul in 2005, which witnessed arguably one of the greatest European Finals of all time.
Liverpool and AC Milan have been together in some of the biggest epics of football history, meeting twice in the UCL finals. They might not be going against each other in the finals but it is going to be quite a clash considering it is the UCL.
Both the teams are amongst the most successful clubs in Europe, they go head to head on Wednesday in the great Anfield Stadium.
They share 13 Champions League Trophies amongst each other, an extraordinary number for just 2 teams in the most competitive stage of football.
Liverpool’s last game ended in a 3-0 victory against Leeds in an away game. Harvey Elliott’s horrific injury was the talk of the game, we wish him a speedy recovery, other than that, Mohamed Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal.
The other goal scorers were Sadio Mane and Fabinho. Overall, a fantastic footballing exhibition from Jurgen Klopp’s team.
AC Milan has had a good start into their current domestic league campaign as they have won all three games. Rafael Leao and the evergreen, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the two goals to wrap up the game against Lazio. An amazing performance from the Italians as well.
