The Rossoneri currently occupy the third position in Group B thanks to a better goal difference against Atlético. Consequently, AC Milan access the Europa League if they win against Liverpool but at the same time Porto also wins. In the event of a Rossoneri victory and simultaneous success for the Spaniards, it will be necessary to go and look at the gap of each victory and evaluate the final goal difference, this because with a wide success the colchoneros could overcome Milan even in the face of a home victory at San Siro. .

17.00 – Milan in the round of 16 if …

Pioli’s team must beat Liverpool at San Siro and at the same time hope that Porto will not win against Atlético. With a draw at do Dragão and a Rossoneri success, Milan would fly to the Round of 16. If, on the other hand, the Spaniards win, new criteria will come into play according to Article 17 (Equality of points-group stage) of the UEFA Champions League regulations. The first concerns the points obtained in the head-to-head matches, and here the balance is tied with one victory each, as well as the goal difference in head-to-head matches and the goals scored in the same (2-2, from this season the goal rule no longer applies. away).

Given this situation in the intersection between the two teams, the overall goal difference would initially be assessed, which currently smiles at Milan (-2 against -3 for Atlético). Even if the goal difference of both teams were to be balanced at the end of the last day, we would look at the goals scored overall in the group, with Milan currently at 5 and the colchoneros at 4.

15.08 – In AC Milan’s success against Salernitana, Zlatan Ibrahimovic remained seated on the bench with the aim of reaching top condition in the decisive Champions League match against Liverpool. At stake is the (very difficult) passage to the round of 16, but also something on a personal level. The extra stimulus for Ibra comes from a record that currently belongs to Francesco Totti, namely that of the “oldest” goal in the Champions League: at the moment it is in the hands of Totti, who in 2014 scored against CSKA Moscow. 38 years and 59 days.

14.04 – Today Milan-Liverpool will be played, the last day of Group B and the decisive match for the Rossoneri who are chasing a difficult but not impossible passage of the round. Among the ranks of Mr. Pioli’s men there are two warned players: Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez. In case of passage of the round, however, the count of yellow cards would not be reset, because the Champions League regulation for warnings and disqualification states that from the group stage onwards, a player enters a warning to the second yellow card and is disqualified from the third. After the first three yellow cards, warning and consequent disqualification will automatically trigger at each subsequent admonition (warning to the fourth, disqualification to the fifth, warning to the sixth, disqualification to the seventh and so on). The count of yellow cards is not reset at the end of the group stage, therefore all the yellow cards previously issued during the tournament will count for the round of 16 and quarter-finals.

13.20 – As shown through a graphic from Milan TV, it is not the first time that the last day of the Champions League group is decisive for the passage of the Rossoneri’s round. There are three precedents:
– 7 December 1994, AC Milan won 1-0 against Casino Salzburg and passed the groups
– November 3, 1999, Milan lost to Galatasaray 3-2 and were eliminated
– December 6, 2005, AC Milan win 3-2 against Schalke and beat the groups

11.40 – With Leao’s absence, Pioli will have to redesign the trocar. As reported by Tuttosport, the Rossoneri coach will fund the last purely offensive resources that he has left: behind Ibrahimovic, in fact (Zlatan is the only player present in the squad), Messias, Brahim Diaz and Krunic will play with the latter who, while the match is in progress, he could also return to play the “center forward” if Ibra needs a change.

10.30 – “Una notte da Ibra”, headlines the Corriere della Sera in view of the Champions League match against Liverpool. The Rossoneri, after yet another stoppage in attack (Leao joined the list of injured players) are holding on to the Swede, who no longer has a potential replacement in the squad. Zlatan, who is hunting for the oldest goal in the Champions League tonight, will have to grit his teeth and go it alone until the break.

10.11 – AC Milan need goals and leadership on the pitch against Liverpool. As La Gazzetta dello Sport points out, the Rossoneri universe obviously looks to Ibrahimovic, still fasting in the Champions League (the last goal dates back to 6 April 2016). Scoring tonight, Zlatan would make a round figure (50) in the tournament and become, at 40, the oldest scorer in the main European club competition. The Rossoneri, therefore, cling to their champion.

10.00 – It was a troubled eve, the one experienced yesterday by Stefano Pioli. As Corriere dello Sport points out, the Rossoneri coach had to take the blow of another heavy absence against Liverpool, that of the striker Rafael Leao, stopped by a slight injury to the hamstring.
