Sports Innovation previews the Champions League match between AC Milan and Liverpool and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.

AC Milan welcome Liverpool to San Siro on Tuesday for their final Champions League group-stage fixture.

Both teams arrive with contrasting fortunes. Liverpool have already booked a spot in the next round, having comfortably qualified as Group B winners. The Reds, therefore, enter the clash under no pressure.

The same can’t be said for AC Milan, though. The Rossoneri are in third place in Group B and, as things stand, won’t reach the last-16. They must get a result here and hope Porto, who sit a point above them in second, fail to beat Atletico Madrid in the other group fixture.

AC Milan vs Liverpool stats and analysis

One look at the Group B table says it all. Liverpool hold an incredible 10-point lead in the standings after only five games. But while the Reds can sit back and take it easy in Italy, the same cannot be said for AC Milan. The home side is down in third and must win to have any chance of following their opponents into the Champions League knockouts.
