On May 23, 2007, AC Milan beat Liverpool 2-1 in Athens, winning the Rossoneri’s seventh European Cup and exacting revenge on the Reds, who had beaten them in Istanbul two years earlier. How do you remember the game?
After beating Manchester United 5-3 in the semi-finals, Milan entered the game with slight favourites, but they had to overcome the trauma of 2005 when they lost on penalties to Liverpool after leading 3-0 at halftime.
Milan were also coming to the end of an era, with some great players entering the twilight of their careers.
They managed to pull off one last job as a group, with their centre-forward scoring two goals – one in the first half and one in the second – to put them ahead. Liverpool pulled one back through Dirk Kuyt with a minute of regulation time remaining, but it proved too little too late.
What we want you to do here is name starting XI Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti – who also won the European Cup with the club as a player – sent to start this game in the Greek capital.
