Incredibly, despite only Real Madrid having more European Cup’s to their name than these two historically humungous sides, Wednesday evening will only be the third time that Liverpool and Milan have met in this competition.
The two previous occasions, of course, came in the 2005 and 2007 Champions League finals, with the two sides sharing one trophy lift apiece.
Arguably, the inferior side on the day won on each occasion: Liverpool produced one of the greatest comebacks in footballing history to come from 3-0 down at half-time and win on penalties in Istanbul in 2005, before Filipo Inzaghi’s brace sunk Rafael Benitez’s side in Athens two years later.
This time it’s the group stage, meaning the stakes are somewhat lower, but neither side will want to begin their European campaign with a defeat, particularly with Atletico Madrid and Porto taking the other two spots in an incredibly strong Group B.
The Reds are phenomenal at home under Jurgen Klopp, particularly in Europe, making 888Sport’s enhanced odds of 7/1 sure to appeal to many. However, this is the Rossoneri’s first Champions League outing in seven years, so the seven-time champions will be highly motivated to inflict an upset, which 888Sport are offering at 40/1.
