Champions League: Liverpool prepare for Milan in opener of ‘proper group’
Jürgen Klopp expects Group B, which also features Atlético Madrid and Porto, to be ‘exciting from the first second’
With Milan in town, surprisingly for the first time at Anfield, it was understandable that Istanbul cropped up several times during Jürgen Klopp’s press conference on Tuesday but also something of a diversion from the task in the Liverpool manager’s hand. Group B, complete with champions, history and above all pedigree, allows little time to reminisce.
Liverpool and Milan have never met outside a Champions League final and a contest between two clubs crowned European champions 13 times in total seems a fitting way to open a group of rare stature and intrigue.
