AC Milan vs Liverpool 2-1 Highlights & Goals – Final UCL 2006/2007 | Football Flashback

Pippo Inzaghi struck twice as AC Milan gained revenge for their 2005 Champions League final defeat against Liverpool with victory in Athens.

Inzaghi scored a freak opener in first-half injury time, unwittingly deflecting Andrea Pirlo’s free-kick past a wrong-footed Pepe Reina.

Steven Gerrard missed a glorious chance to equalise before Inzaghi slid home a second eight minutes from time.

Dirk Kuyt pulled one back with a header with a minute left, but time ran out.

Liverpool, as expected, used Kuyt as a lone front man with captain Gerrard pushed into an advanced role.

And it was a ploy that worked well until Liverpool conceded unfortunately in the dying seconds of the first half.

Jermaine Pennant was also prominent as Liverpool posed the greater threat, forcing a fine save from Dida after Marek Jankulovski had conceded possession.

The much-touted Brazil star Kaka was a peripheral figure early on, but he brought a comfortable save from Liverpool keeper Reina with a 20-yard drive.

Alonso then came within inches of putting Liverpool ahead after 26 minutes, sending an angled drive just wide after more poor Milan defending.

But after controlling the game, Liverpool conceded needlessly in first-half injury time.

Alonso had committed several careless fouls, and he paid the price for another infringement on Kaka 20 yards out.

Pirlo’s free-kick took a crucial deflection off Inzaghi that completely wrong-footed Reina.

Liverpool struggled to exert their superiority in the early stages of the second half and Benitez made a change after 58 minutes, sending on Harry Kewell for Bolo Zenden.

Gerrard had Liverpool’s best chance on 62 minutes when he was sent clear by a dreadful pass by Rino Gattuso, but his finish was weak and Dida saved.

Time was running out for Liverpool and Benitez made a second change with 13 minutes left, sending on Peter Crouch for Javier Mascherano.

As Liverpool pushed forward, they were punished by a piece of brilliance by Kaka and a trademark ruthless finish from Inzaghi.

Kaka unlocked Liverpool with a glorious pass and Inzaghi rounded Reina before scoring from an angle.

Crouch then tested Dida with a 25-yard drive as Liverpool tried to mount an unlikely recovery.

Liverpool pulled one back in the dying seconds when Daniel Agger flicked on Pennant’s corner and Kuyt headed home.

But this time there was no dramatic comeback and Milan celebrated wildly.

Manchester United vs AC Milan 3-5 (agg) Highlights & Goals – Semi-finals | UCL 2006/2007

AC Milan will face Liverpool in the Champions League final after crushing Manchester United at the San Siro.

Milan started the semi-final 3-2 down but were ahead on away goals after just 11 minutes when Clarence Seedorf headed down for Kaka to drill into the corner.

Seedorf capitalised on confusion in the United defence to fire in a second after half an hour.

And substitute Alberto Gilardino broke away to wrap up an easy win as United limped out in disappointing fashion.

The result ended United’s dreams of repeating their 1999 Treble, but they can have no complaints after being totally outclassed by their Italian opponents.

Sir Alex Ferguson named Nemanja Vidic in his starting line-up after the defender’s recovery from a broken collarbone but the Serb, like his colleagues, was overwhelmed by Milan’s superior passing and movement in wet conditions.

The thunderous skies only added to the intimidating atmosphere at the San Siro, and when Milan began at a blistering pace, United were simply awestruck.

The hosts threatened in the very first minute when Kaka delivered a dangerous ball across goal, after three minutes when Seedorf forced Edwin van der Sar to tip over and again on seven minutes when Kaka shot straight at the United keeper.

The goal, then, was no more than Milan deserved, Seedorf nodding the ball down for Kaka to hammer home his 10th Champions League goal of the season.

United’s much-vaunted attack was proving toothless.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who started on the left, was hardly in the game, Ryan Giggs was similarly anonymous, while Wayne Rooney’s touch deserted him.

The England striker was guilty of giving the ball away on numerous occasions but at least his errors were nowhere near as catastrophic as Gabriel Heinze’s moment of madness.

As United tried to play their way out of defence, the left-back inexplicably passed back to Vidic, who then compounded his team-mate’s error by slipping as he scrambled to clear.

Milan regained possession and the ball eventually fell for Seedorf, who rode Vidic’s challenge before finding the same corner as Kaka.

At half-time, optimistic United fans might have pointed to their side’s recovery from two goals down in the 1999 semi-final against Juventus in Turin, but Milan were simply too good for such lacklustre opponents.

United had far more possession in the second half but rarely threatened a calm and composed Milan defence nor did they manage to test Milan’s out-of-form keeper Dida.

Rooney finally found an accurate pass to set up Darren Fletcher, but he skewed wide and that was as good a chance as United fashioned.

And Milan booked a repeat of the 2005 final against Liverpool when Gilardino galloped through a gaping hole in the United defence and stroked the ball past a stranded Van der Sar.

AC Milan: Dida, Oddo, Nesta, Kaladze, Jankulovski, Gattuso (Cafu 84), Pirlo, Seedorf, Ambrosini, Kaka (Favalli 86), Inzaghi (Gilardino 66).
Subs Not Used: Kalac, Bonera, Serginho, Brocchi.

Booked: Ambrosini, Gattuso.

Goals: Kaka 11, Seedorf 30, Gilardino 78.

Man Utd: Van der Sar, O’Shea (Saha 77), Brown, Vidic, Heinze, Ronaldo, Fletcher, Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Rooney.

Liverpool Legends vs Barcelona Legends 1-2 Highlights & Goals | Gerrard, Rivaldo, Edgar Davids

It was a time for a trip down memory lane as the Liverpool Legends met Barcelona at Anfield, with Steven Gerrard providing plenty of nostalgia during the 2-1 defeat.

The stress that accompanies Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds forgotten, a wave of nostalgia instead took its place as Liverpool’s heroes of the past took centre stage.

They might not have looked how they once did, a few grey hairs here and there and perhaps the kit did not fit as comfortably, but entertainment followed at a packed Anfield.

The mood was jovial as families took their place in the stands, with no doubt many seeing the hallowed Anfield turf for the first time – a moment that can be easy to take for granted.

But those in Red had seen it a time or two before, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Luis Garcia, Dirk Kuyt and Sami Hyypia to name but a few.

It may not have been at the blistering pace that we have grown accustomed to, but it’d be hard to question Gerrard as a regular, the touch and the presence all still very much there.

And it’s what earned him the first-half penalty that he, of course, converted with no problem at all – much to the delight of the Reds faithful. The clock was turned back and his name rung out from the stands with gusto.

The kid inside certainly had heart-eyes at that moment.

Carragher then took to rolling on the ground behind the wall for a free-kick, you’d expect that one to pop up on Sky Sports thanks to his new bestie Gary Neville!

With the tanks running low, Giovanni, one of three No. 10s for Barcelona, was able to get on the scoresheet – and a few boos in good jest directed his way, as that was not part of the script.

Gerrard was then the only one to emerge for the second half as Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush made 10 changes – bet Burnley and Sean Dyche were grumbling away at that one!

The certifiable legend that is Rivaldo then had to blast home a thunderous penalty and Jerzy Dudek had no chance – his goalline magic not doing the trick on this occasion.

The mix of generations was a joy to behold, even if at times it could have been mistaken for a basketball game given the ever-changing faces on and off the bench.

Liverpool Legends First Half XI: Westerveld, Johnson, Kvarme, Hyypia, Agger, Carragher; Gerrard, Aurelio, Diao, Garcia; Kuyt

Liverpool Legends Second Half XI: Dudek; Enrique, McAteer, Baros, Babb, McManaman, Smicer, Berger, Gerrard, Rodriguez, Downing

Barcelona Legends: Angoy, Belletti, Dehu, Davids, Trashorras, Savolia, Giully, Rivaldo, Garcia, Edmilson, Coco

Substitutes: Soler, Tortolero, Rodriquez, Giovanni, Mateu, Guzman, Mendieta, Riera, Garcia
