Our prediction for this match:
Liverpool and Milan, the two old rivals, take on each other at the 2016 International Champions Cup. The two teams faced each other in the 2005 Champions League final and back then the Reds came from three goals behind to beat the Rossoneri. Milan are eager to get their revenge on Liverpool and, no doubt, the Serie A giants are going to take Sunday’s football game against Jurgen Klopp’s charges. Liverpool suffered a 1-0 loss to Chelsea in their International Champions Cup opener and it has to be noted that they failed to grab something from the game against the ten-man Blues. Milan did remarkably well to beat Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on penalties in their opener and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the Liverpool clash. Taking everything into account, we predict that the Rossoneri are going to get their revenge on Jurgen Klopp’s troops for the defeat in the 2005 Champions League final.

AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
