Two of the most successful clubs in the history of the Champions League, Milan (seven) and Liverpool (six) have won 13 titles between them and have faced each other in two finals. 
Liverpool defeated Milan on penalties in the 'Miracle of Istanbul' in 2005, but Milan were able to exact revenge on the Reds in the 2007 final in Athens. 

"It's the Champions League, so that's how it is, and you have to play the best teams in Europe, and obviously some of them are in our group!" said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, of a group which also includes Atletico Madrid and Porto. 

"We played, I don't know how often, already against Porto, so they will be waiting for us. We have obviously a little bit of [an] open bill with Atletico, and AC Milan, a historical one obviously.

"So, I think our supporters should be looking forward to it – we do, for sure," he added. 
Milan will make a return to Europe's elite competition for the first time in seven years, having enjoyed a successful rebuild under the tutelage of Stefano Pioli.

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs in the Champions League since that 2-1 win for the Rossoneri in the 2007 final. Liverpool beat the Italians on penalties two years earlier after a 3-3 draw.
