It’s a repeat of THAT famous night in Istanbul when Liverpool lifted the Champions League in 2005 beating AC Milan in the final! But this time it’s a soccer friendly on July 30 we’ll get to feast our eyes upon. Watch the full match with us from 10pm EST!
Now, AC Milan fans don’t like the thought of EVER playing Liverpool. Going back to that night in 2005, the Red Devils famously raced to a 3-0 lead at halftime. Liverpool were dead and buried. Somehow they fought back to 3-3, took the game to extra time and then one in a penalty shootout. It was heartbreaking for the Italians!
Liverpool will need to get going with their preseason preparations. In their last Champions Cup game they lost to Premier League rivals Chelsea 1-0, and in truth they rarely looked like scoring. Jurgen Klopp will demand more from his troops in this game.
The big hope for Liverpool this season is their new signings Saido Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum. Both are with the squad in the US, and should be getting some minutes under their belt before the curtain raises on the Premier League.
This is a big season for Liverpool, they have a lot to prove under Jurgen and will be desperate to improve on last season’s finish where they ended up coming 8th in an up and down campaign. Winning this one would be a good start, because they open their campaign against Arsenal and need to be ready from game one.
Liverpool should win this, being slightly ahead of their prep when it comes to preseason, and they should have more experience in their squad for this one.
HollywoodLifers, do you think AC Milan will get their revenge on Liverpool? Or will it be a case of history repeating? Tell us below!
