We stay in Group B, we just transfer virtually to Anfield, where the six-time winners of the trophy in the Liverpool Champions League and the seven-time champions in the Champions League Milan meet, only these numbers are enough to tremble in anticipation of another exciting football show between them.
Liverpool is a team for which the goals are always very high, the reasons are both the club's history and the extremely demanding fans. Of course, things do not always turn out the way they want, but the aspirations are always maximum. So it is at the beginning of this season, "Merseyside" can be happy with their start in the Premier League with three clear convincing victories and a draw on this field with Chelsea - 1: 1. Jürgen Klopp and his players are aware of how complex a group they are and that only with maximum effort can they qualify for the eliminations to have a chance for a new triumph in the Champions League, after 2019. Elliott is injured and the involvement of Firmino, Williams and Minamino is in question.
Milan won its seventh and last title against today's hosts in 2007 with 2: 1 in Athens, is also ready for the challenges of the season in all competitions. Only victories for the "Rossoneri" in Serie A in the three rounds, in the last of Giuseppe Meazza over Lazio with 2-0 on Sunday, the good news was the return of veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the game, with a goal scored. This will give confidence to the whole team for this complex visit at the beginning of the fight in a difficult and unpredictable group with strong rivals. There are few problems for Stefano Pioli, only Krunic is injured, and Bakayoko's condition makes his involvement questionable.
There are two direct matches between the teams and the two in the Champions League finals, in 2005 one of the most significant finals was played at the Kemal Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, after Milan took a 3-0 lead at halftime, Liverpool returned to the match with three hits after the break, the goal did not fall in overtime, and in the penalties "Reds" triumphed with 3: 2. It was a question of the final in 2007 - 2: 1 for Milan. Today with 4/1 the hosts are determined as favorites, the tips are for under 2.5 goals, no goal, 1st, X2 and 2nd. We offer you an enhanced version of the top math forecast based on 4 of Liverpool's last 5 Champions League games - under 3.5 goals. Prediction under 3.5 goals, if we and the computer make a mistake, the consolation will be at least 4 goals scored.
Liverpool is perfect
This is one of the toughest groups in the Champions League. And this meeting is one of the most difficult to predict the market for the final outcome.
Why is that?
Well, on the one hand, because at the moment Liverpool is just perfect.
And according to football experts, he is repeating the game from his championship season in the Premier League from 2019/20.
Of course, we cannot disagree with such a statement.
And not only because of the excellent results with 10 out of 12 possible points.
What was more impressive was that they convincingly outplayed all their rivals according to xG data.
They scored 9 and conceded only one goal in that period.
Liverpool are also the 2nd team to create the most and the 3rd team to concede the fewest goal goals in the Premier League.
They can also afford full dedication in this match because of the easy match after 4 days with Crystal Palace.
Milan is impressive
In Milan, however, everything also seems to be going very well.
They had a successful season last campaign. And with a very young team.
And now they have added experience with new strong transfers.
They impressed a lot with their 3 victories.
And especially with the 2-0 victory over Lazio, which was surpassed by all indicators.
In Serie A so far, Milan are the second, created the most and allowed the least team.
Prediction for Liverpool - Milan
In the end, it turns out that no Liverpool can be as big a favorite as the bookmaker presents us.
Nor does the coefficient for this have any value.
But not even between such equal teams, with strong defenses, can anyone get a landslide victory.
Nor high performance.
From this point of view, I tell you that, for example, a bet for Milan with +1.25 Asian Handicap is a very good choice.
But not available in Create Bet.
Therefore, I will simply choose not to have more than 3 goals in the match.
Liverpool are a team that makes a lot of corners.
But against rivals who dominate a lot. And against teams that allow a lot of goal positions in front of their door.
He even did it against Chelsea. But you know that there they played in a reduced squad.
Milan, however, is a team that does not allow so many situations. That is, so many corners.
They themselves also do not make more than about 5 on average per game.
Below 12 corners I see a good choice and I add it.
Because the forecast for Liverpool - Milan is type Beth Builder, only an average bet.
