Champions League, probable line-ups: Liverpool vs. Milan

Ante Rebic is expected to start in Milan’s attack against Liverpool tonight with Ismael Bennacer or Sandro Tonali in the middle of the park.

It kicks off at 20.00 UK time.

The Rossoneri play their first Champions League game in more than seven years and, for the first time in history, they face Liverpool at Anfield Road in a competitive match.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic injured and Olivier Giroud, who has just recovered from COVID, Ante Rebic is expected to start as a sole striker for the Rossoneri with Alexis Saelemaekers, Brahim Diaz and Rafael Leao behind him.

Simon Kjaer was rested against Lazio and will start at Anfield Road tonight along with former Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori.

Franck Kessié will get the nod in the middle of the park and should be partnered by Bennacer with Sandro Tonali on the bench.

Jurgen Klopp will look to former Roma stars Alisson and Mohamed Salah with the Egypt international who scored one goal and delivered two assists in three appearances against the Rossoneri during his time in Serie A.

Liverpool vs. Milan: probable line-ups

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Alcantara; Salah, Firmino, Manè

Milan: Maignan; Calabria, Kajer, Tomori, Hernandez; Bennacer, Kessie; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Rebic.
