Liverpool will try to be one of a select group of teams that have won each of their six Champions League group matches in a single season when they travel to the San Siro to take on Milan on Tuesday night.

The Reds have already guaranteed themselves the top spot in Group B, but their opponents still have everything to play for.

Any of Milan, Porto or Atletico Madrid can still secure second place and advance to the last 16, depending on how the results fall on match day six.

Here’s everything you need to know before the decisive clash …

Milan’s domestic form is even more impressive when you consider the stream of injury problems Stefano Pioli has had to deal with this season.

Pietro Pellegri, Simon Kjaer, Olivier Giroud, Samu Castillejo, Ante Rebic and Davide Calabria are all looking for Rossoneri.

However, this is not all bad news. Zlatan Ibrahimovic should be fit enough to start and goalkeeper number one Mike Maignan returned between the sticks against Salernitana this weekend.

Especially when judging it against last season’s standard, Liverpool’s injury list is thankfully short.

Long-term absence Roberto Firmino and Harvey Elliott will miss this Curtis Jones is doubtful. However, Joe Gomez and Naby Keita should both return to the bench. James Milner is suspended.

Before the meeting on match day one – which Jurgen Klopp’s team did 3-2 – Milan and Liverpool had only met in the Champions League finals.

The first match ever between the pair was the final in 2005 – where the Reds made a time-defining comeback to triumph on penalties in Istanbul. Two years later, Milan took revenge and won 2-1 in Athens.

Milan will be absolutely desperate to get a positive result after spending so much time away from the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Reds will meanwhile be very rotated but still motivated to win as they look to keep up the pace this season.

In the end, the stream of injuries that have decimated Serie A leaders in recent times is likely to prove too much to overcome, and they will need a minor miracle to advance to the knockout stage.

Prediction: Milan 1-2 Liverpool
