There is something poetic about Milan's trip to Anfield on 15 September 2021 being the first time Liverpool and the Rossoneri have ever met in the Champions League group stages.

Every man, woman and child old enough to form memories will remember exactly where they were and who they were with when Liverpool took on Milan in 2005, as the world witnessed one of the greatest ever football matches on the biggest of stages in Istanbul.

Rafa Benitez's boys would then go on to finish the famous 2004/05 campaign in fifth place, amassing only 58 points and missing out on Champions League qualification to Merseyside rivals Everton.

But back in 2005 on that night in Istanbul, it was roles reversed.

The Reds were forced to play a Champions League qualification round against Grazer AK, which they won 2-1 on aggregate.

Liverpool were very much the underdogs, while Milan were the celebrated heavyweight favourites.

Any team that reaches the Champions League final must have a little something about them, but it's fair to say that this edition of Liverpool was far from vintage.
