The Reds have already qualified as group winners for the last 16 but their opponents can still qualify as runners up hence will be desperate to get the win to give them a chance of progressing.

If Milan were to win, the result in the other Group B match between Porto and Atletico Madrid would need to be a draw to see the Italians through as runners up.
