On this day in 2007 there was Champions League heartache for Liverpool as AC Milan beat the Reds in the final.

Going into their second European final in three years against the Rossoneri, Rafa Benitez’s Reds were hopeful of lifting their sixth European Cup. Although it sadly wasn’t to be as a Philippo Inzaghi brace saw AC Milan go 2-0 up over the Reds. A late goal from Dirk Kuyt gave the 2005 champions some hope but there was no Istanbul-esque comeback on the cards and Ancelotti’s AC Milan claimed their seventh European Cup title after a hard-fought 2-1 win in Athens.
