With six and seven continental titles respectively, no other games in the 2021/22 Champions League Group Stage will see both sides carrying such rich history.

But while Liverpool have become Champions League regulars in recent years under Jurgen Klopp, the same cannot be said for their opponents from the finals of 2005 and 2007.

Liverpool versus AC Milan is a true clash of European heavyweights.

It’s a bit of a cliché to characterise Italian football as slower than its English counterpart but watch clips of Milan’s recent counter attacking goals and they aren’t as lightning quick as Liverpool are when tearing opposition sides to shreds on the break.

Per FBRef, Klopp’s team generated 1.91 expected goals every 90 minutes last season, just 0.04 more than their Champions League rivals from Serie A.

Yet their trip to Anfield will be the first match in the Champions League since the 2013/14 season, and they last reached the last eight of either European competition two years prior to that.

Liverpool and Milan are two teams who performed to an incredibly similar level last season and though the Reds look more like their old selves in the early weeks of this campaign, it promises to be a tight match at Anfield in match week one.
