If AC Milan’s performance in the domestic league and the fight for the Scudetto might please the fans, the way they performed in the Champions League is unlikely. The Rossoneri are third in Group B with four points. For them, today is an important match. There is a chance of making the playoffs of the tournament’s best or of being left out of the Europa League altogether. In any case, the team badly needs a win, which has only been one - 1-0 over Atletico in the last round.
Liverpool, for their part, have rolled through the Champions League group stage. Five wins in five games, 15 points, 15-5 overall and a ten-point gap to second-placed Porto in the table - fantastic! And it’s not just on the international stage. In the EPL, Liverpool are one point behind leaders Manchester City and have only lost one game all season - 2-3 to stalwart West Ham in London.
Expert Betting Tips
We can proceed from the fact that AC Milan incredibly need a win. And even if the game takes place at the San Siro, Liverpool are certainly not a club that will easily give up three points. Besides, when there is an opportunity to finish the group stage with six wins in a row, that will automatically terrify their opponents in the playoffs and play into the hands of Liverpool later on. But, by and large, they have nothing to lose so that we can count on any defensive lapses. Milan have defensive problems - Kjær, Calabria will not play, Hernandez is also questionable. The first game between the opponents was rich in goals (there were five). It is logical to expect an upper hand in this one.
