Reliving the Reds’ 2005 Champions League glory


There is something poetic about Milan’s trip to Anfield on 15 September 2021 being the first time Liverpool and the Rossoneri have ever met in the Champions League group stages.

For two kings of the sport, it feels appropriate that whenever they meet, it’s usually to compete for the grandest prize in football and the most beautiful silverware on offer.

And upon Milan’s return to the top table of European football, now as underdogs owing to their seven-year absence, who better to welcome Rocky Balboa back than Apollo Creed?

But back in 2005 on that night in Istanbul, it was roles reversed. Liverpool were very much the underdogs, while Milan were the celebrated heavyweight favourites.
