Milan - After a gallant performance in Merseyside, AC Milan left Anfield empty handed after losing to Liverpool 3 - 2. A performance of that magnitude in the presence of their home fans could be exactly what they need to execute when they visit an unpredictable Atletico Madrid at the San Siro.

After a sensational display by the Norwegian and his British counterpart Jude Billingham, the Yellow and Black would feel they have a chance of collecting three more points when they visit a wounded Sporting Lisbon to the Signal Iduna Park.

SuperSport have reported that Haaland will be fit and ready to play after an injury scare this past weekend.
