Liverpool vs AC Milan: Prediction and Betting Tips
Liverpool meet one of their rivals in their UCL finals clashes
After being eliminated by Real Madrid in the quarter-final last season, Liverpool need a good start this year. However, they face one of the giants in European football, AC Milan, a team they beat in 2005 final. Surprisingly this is the first European H2H meeting outside the finals.
In effect, Jurgen Klopp hopes his team’s fine start to PL season will reflect in this match. Moreover, Liverpool’s resurgence as a European contender was felt by most teams they faced in recent years. Furthermore, since the start of the 2017/18 season, only Bayern Munich and Manchester City have better records. Indeed, Liverpool’s record stands at 25 wins and 95 goals since then.
Liverpool Key Stats
- Liverpool are undefeated in their last 13 competitive games
- The Reds scored in all of their last ten matches
- In their last ten games, Liverpool had six clean sheets
AC Milan are back in Europe’s top competition
In Contradiction to Liverpool’s recent results in the Champions League, Milan will play in the UCL group stage for the first time since 2013/14. Meanwhile, their start to their Serie A season is perfect so far winning all three matches. Moreover, Rossoneri’s undefeated run extends to eight games since the conclusion of last season.
Alarmingly, Milan’s form guide dips when we take their record against English opposition. In fact, the Italians won just one of their last 13 European matches against English sides (D4, L8). Also, Milan’s strong domestic form didn’t help them in Europe last term as they won just two of their last eight Europa League fixtures.
Milan key stats
- Milan won four of their last five away games
- The Rossoneri had four clean sheets in their last five away games
- In their last ten matches, Milan scored in eight of them
Liverpool vs AC Milan Prediction
This match is the most-awaited on matchday one of the 2021/21 Champions League fixtures. Notably, both teams are in very good form and we expect a fierce battle between these two giants.
With the bookies, Liverpool are clear favorites as Vbet are offering odds of 1.55 for a Reds win. Despite Milan’s form in Serie A, they are the underdogs because of their lack of UCL presence in recent years.
In effect, Milan have a very tough task at Anfield as they meet the penultimate year’s champion. Thus it is very important for Milan’s defense to be at their best to neutralize Liverpool’s attack.
