Liverpool will be hosting AC Milan as both teams look to get off to a fast start in Group B of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season. This is a tough group that also features Porto and Atletico Madrid so there is no scope for any errors. Liverpool and AC Milan went head to head in the Finals of the Champions League back in 2007 but a lot has changed since then.
AC Milan is returning to the Champions League after 8 years and they struggled in the Europa League as well during that time. Liverpool, on the other hand, seems to have recovered from its horror injury-filled season last year and has almost its entire first-choice starting eleven available. The horrific injury to Harvey Elliot in the previous match is the one major gap in their regular lineup. Playing at home against Liverpool is not an easy return to the Champions League for AC Milan at all.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Liverpool vs AC Milan, UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Anfield, Liverpool on the 15th of September 2021.
Liverpool at full-strength is one of the most dangerous teams in the world. We think the return of Virgil Van Dijk to the team is a huge boost and makes its defense much stronger. Liverpool has been able to keep three clean sheets in its four matches and has conceded just one goal in the Premier League so far. The loss of Harvey Elliot is a big one (considering he was becoming a regular starter) but Mohammad Salah, Sadio Mane, and Diogo Jota give Liverpool enough attacking power to get past AC Milan.
We think Liverpool should be able to continue its strong form so far and start its Champions League campaign with a win at home.
Bet on Liverpool to win.
We are hedging our bets a bit in this bet. Both AC Milan and Liverpool have been very good at scoring goals this season and have some genuinely world-class players in their attacks. However, Liverpool also has a great record of keeping clean sheets coming into this match. The return of Virgil Van Dijk makes Liverpool a team that can lock down opponents quite effectively.
With conflicting signals, we are taking a slightly safe route and betting on under 3.5 goals to be scored in this match.
Sadio Mane scored in the previous match for Liverpool and is in good form. He has been hitting the target quite regularly and also has the motivation of scoring his 20th Champions League goal in this match. With the support of his home crowd to spur him on, we are happy to take a punt on him to get a goal in this match.
