AC Milan are hoping to qualify for the knockout stages when they host Liverpool in the final Group B encounter on Tuesday night.

Liverpool are top of the Group with 15 points and already booked their spot in the next round after winning all their matches.

Milan on the other hand bagged their first win in the competition on matchday 4 with a 1-0 away victory against Atletico Madrid.

The win left them in third place with 4 points, one behind second place Porto, leaving them with a chance to go through.
