Liverpool deprived European rivals Milan of achieving miracles and reaching the round of 16 after the Italian team gained only one point in the first four games, and Liverpool achieved the full mark in the group stage.
Milan started the scoring through English defender Fikayo Tomori (29), but Liverpool responded with two by the Egyptian Mohamed Salah (36) and Belgian Divock Origi (55). It was Liverpool’s second win over AC Milan in four Champions League clashes against a loss and a draw.
Liverpool became the first English team to gain a full mark in the group stage of the prestigious continental competition. Liverpool played the match with a squad of only three key players: Brazilian goalkeeper Allison, striker Salah, and Senegalese Sadio Mane.
Egyptian star Mohamed Salah scored the seventh goal of the competition this season. With this result, Milan completed the group stage round with 4 points.
