Jamie Carragher has previously spoken of how he laments Rafa Benitez's decision to leave two players on the bench in a “killer” Liverpool vs AC Milan Champions League final.

"I know Crouchy came on but it's always a little regret that Bellamy didn't come on."

In the 2007 final, Carragher said Benitez’s choice to leave out Craig Bellamy and Peter Crouch cost the Reds the game.

Liverpool started with Dutchman Dirk Kuyt up top alone, and Bellamy spent the tie on the bench, with Crouch coming on only in the 78th minute.

Two years after an unforgettable Champions league comeback in Istanbul, Liverpool lost 2-1 to the same opponents in Athens.

AC Milan won the Champions League that year when FIlippo Inzaghi scored a brace, taking revenge on the Reds despite Kuyt pulling back a late goal.

And now the two sides meet once again, in their opening group stage of the Champions League campaign, with both teams looking to get off to a good start.
