AC Milan vs Liverpool is one of the tricky fixtures in this midweek UEFA Champions League group stage match. AC Milan will host Liverpool later today, December 7, at 21:00. The Group B match will be played at the Giuseppe Meazza in Italy.

Unlike Liverpool that have already qualified for the next round of the European club tournament, AC Milan need to beat Liverpool to stand a chance of qualifying for the next round.

Currently, Liverpool are leading Group B with 15 points in 5 games. They are yet to record any draw nor defeat so far in the UEFA Champions League campaign.

On the other hand, AC Milan are currently sitting in the 3rd spot with 4 points in 5 games, equal points with bottom-placed Atletico Madrid. While Porto are occupying the second spot with 5 points in 5 games.

This means that if Atletico Madrid beat Porto or otherwise, the winner of the match will finish second which is enough to qualify for the next round. However, if AC Milan beat Liverpool with a good number of goals and Atletico Madrid beat Porto with a slim scoreline, Milan would scale through.
