Liverpool are coming off of a dramatic second half stoppage-time winning goal from Divock Origi against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. The win keeps the team’s hope of winning the Premier League alive, meaning they are still fighting on four fronts in all competitions for trophies.

AC Milan vs Liverpool Match Preview

The Reds will reignite their Champions League trophy quest on Tuesday night having already won Group B. Jurgen Klopp has the ability to rest key players which could happen at San Siro. The Liverpool manager will be reminded of Diogo Jota being injured on the final day of the group stage last season in a meaningless game. The injury ruled Jota out for some weeks and Liverpool’s title challenge ended during that time.

AC Milan head into matchday 6 of the Champions League group stage following a second straight Serie A win. In the space of a few days, AC Milan defeated relegation battlers Genoa and Salernitana by a combined score of 5-0. If AC Milan want to reach the last 16 of the Champions League, they must defeat Liverpool.

A home win won’t be enough, however. Stefano Pioli needs FC Porto to drop points to Atletico Madrid, and the Spanish side mustn’t overturn AC Milan’s slender goal difference.

AC Milan vs Liverpool Betting Odds

odds

On matchday 1 at Anfield, Liverpool and AC Milan played another epic fixture. The game was back and forth with Liverpool winning 3-2. A Fikayo Tomori own goal put Liverpool ahead. From there, the Reds bombarded AC Milan’s goal with shot-stopper Mike Maignan keeping the Italians in the game. He even saved a Mohamed Salah penalty to keep the score 1-0.

The Rossoneri scored twice just before halftime as they pulled goals out of nothing. Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz scored in the space of two minutes. Salah bounced back from the missed penalty, scoring on 49 minutes and then Jordan Henderson’s wonder strike sealed the comeback for a 3-2 home win.

AC Milan are at the best betting odds of 23/20 to win at home. The Rossoneri are –2 in goal difference in the Champions League, sit third in Group B, and have taken just four points from 15 possible. Liverpool are at the best betting odds of 23/10. They are expected to make wholesale changes to the side that won at Molineux on Saturday. The team that started that match is considered Klopp’s strongest.

The Reds have taken 15 points from 15 in the Champions, are +10 in goal difference, and have scored in all 22 matches in all competitions this season.

AC Milan vs Liverpool Team News

Klopp continues to be without Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian is still nursing a thigh injury. Midfielders Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones are still ruled out due to an ankle and eye injury, respectively. Midfielder Naby Keita and Joe Gomez are major doubts.

Klopp could rest both Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk. The former’s minutes have been managed brilliantly allowing him to show just how important he is to the side. Kostas Tsimikas, Neco Williams, Tyler Morton, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino, and Divock Origi will all be in line to start the game.

Pioli will be without one of his best players, Simon Kjaer, who is now out of action for the rest of the season. Kjaer suffered a serious ACL injury. Pioli could be without Ante Rebic, Olivier Giroud, Samu Castillejo, Davide Calabria, and Pietro Pellegri.

The AC Milan coach does not have the ability to change around his side. Pioli must play the strongest squad at his disposal versus Liverpool to have a change to qualify for the next round. The good news for Pioli is that goalkeeper Mike Maignan has played in AC Milan’s last three matches following a wrist injury.
