Liverpool vs AC Milan Tips


It’s the clash of the two European powerhouses as the UEFA Champions League Group B kick starts with Liverpool and AC Milan play at Anfield. This match will be played on Thursday evening Australian time.

Both Liverpool and AC Milan have made impressive starts to their domestic challenge. As they seek to carry that form to Europe, a close match is in the offing. I am backing under 2.5 goals in this match and a draw is not off the limits.

The two European heavyweights have played each other twice, winning once each.

AC Milan gained revenge with a 2-1 win over Liverpool in the 2007.

Liverpool are coming off a 3-0 win over Leeds United at the weekend. That made it three wins and a draw in the Premier League for the Reds, who are tied on points at the top.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League quarter-final last season. They have won three and drew one of their five matches at home last season, losing only once.

Liverpool Team News


Harvey Elliott joins Neco Williams and Roberto Firmino on the injury bench for Liverpool. Jordan Henderson should come back into the side after resting at the weekend.

AC Milan Form


AC Milan started the season with three straight wins in the league. That included a 2-0 win over Lazio at the weekend. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic getting back to scoring form, the visitors look set to challenge for a win.

Milan are back in the Champions league for the first time since 2013/14. Last season in the Europa League, they were knocked out in the round of 16 by Manchester United.

Olivier Giroud is likely to be cleared to play this match after recovering from COVID-19. Tiemoue Bakayoko went off injured against Lazio and is set for scans to decide his available. Midfielder Rade Krunic remains out of contention for AC Milan.

Verdict

Both Liverpool and AC Milan have started their domestic season well raising hopes of continuing that in Europe. Milan are back in the Champions League after a long gap and will look to start well.

I am backing the match to be a tight-affair. Liverpool and AC Milan are likely to give us a close game. A draw is a value bet and not far off, while under 2.5 goals could be a good pick.
