Liverpool head into a rematch of their iconic 2005 Champions League triumph against AC Milan in high spirits after a strong start to their 2021/22 campaign.
The Reds are six-time champions of Europe and recorded the fifth of those titles with a dramatic victory over the Italian giants in Istanbul, though Milan remain one of two teams to lift the trophy more often than Liverpool with seven to their name.
Jurgen Klopp will be delighted to boast a full slate of players for the 2021/22 campaign and will hope they can maintain their early-season form which has taken them to third in the fledgling Premier League table, level on points with Chelsea and Man Utd above them.
Mohamed Salah has started the season in terrific form with three goals and two assists to his name in four appearances so far and will be determined to fire the Reds through the rounds on the continental stage once again.
AC Milan sit top of Serie A with a 100 per cent winning record after three games with seven goals to their name and just one conceded. They finished second last season – the best of the rest behind Antonio Conte’s dominant Inter – but will hope to push their Milanese rivals much closer this time following the departures of Conte and top scorer Romelu Lukaku.

Our prediction: Liverpool v AC Milan
This is among the best ties of the opening round of Champions League fixtures with both sides in excellent league form, boasting upward trajectories and with massive expectations on their shoulders.
Don’t expect the drama of ’05, but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic back on British soil, you can expect fireworks.
Liverpool head into this one as favourites but Klopp may be forced to rotate a player or two to avoid burn-out during some Champions League encounter this term. Both sides could play it safer than usual given the importance of this tie in a group that also contains Portuguese giants Porto and La Liga champions Atletico Madrid.
