Duel at the top between a Milan team who could have been eliminated two games ago, and a Liverpool team, comfortably installed in the chair of the qualifier. Despite the gap between these two teams at kick-off, this meeting is absolutely essential for qualifying.
Milan are at this stage, a miraculous team. On the verge of elimination in the home draw against Porto, Stefano Pioli’s team held on, until they managed to win 0-1 at Wanda Metropolitano on the final matchday against Atlético de Madrid. A success allowing them to pass in front of the Madrid club thanks to the goal difference. Faced with a Liverpool team most certainly reshaped, only victory allow the Milanese to dream. Indeed, they will also have to count on a poor performance of Porto, opposed to Atlético de Madrid at the same time. The two matches taking place simultaneously, the pressure may be high in group B.
Opposite, Liverpool advance serene. Only team with Ajax Amsterdam and Bayern Munich to count only victories in this Champions League, the formation of Jurgen Klopp did not leave many places to his opponents until then. Close to conceding a draw against Atlético at the Metropolitano on Matchday 3, the Reds were able to count throughout this group stage on a particularly fit Mohamed Salah, leading his people to victory 100% of the time. If this statistic continues on the last day, it will be between Porto and Atlético that the debates will be open.
Editor’s opinion: 1-3
Despite all the stake that drives the Milanese, Liverpool players lined up will have to indicate. Konaté, Origi, Tsimikas, they will be accompanied by the tauliers Alisson, Van Dijk or even Salah to ensure a result against the armada of Milan. In difficulty in the game in this Champions League, Milan will still have to create the feat.
Milan : Maignan; Kalulu, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Ibrahimovic
Liverpool : Alisson; Williams, Konaté, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Morton, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Origi, Minamino
