The Line-Ups For AC Milan vs Liverpool Legends Game Are Glorious

The miracle of Istanbul was complete when Liverpool overcame the odds to win on penalties in 2005. It was a day like no other.

14 years on from that historic night, when two goals from Hernan Crespo and a rare finish from Paolo Maldini put Milan 3-0 ahead at half-time, Liverpool fans will be hoping to see a repeat on Saturday afternoon when the likes of Steven Gerrard and Luis Garcia come up against a host of Milan legends.

Gerrard's bullet header clawed the scoreline to 3-1 and six minutes later, the game was tied when Vladimír Šmicer and Xabi Alonso sent Liverpool fans into a frenzy.

Then those famous penalties happened and one of the great Champions League moments was born.

It may surprise you to learn that only one player from the 2005 Champions League final is still playing to this very day.

You probably thought he had hung up his boots by now but Milan Baros, who played 85 minutes of the game, is still playing.

The 36-year old, who scored 41 goals in 93 matches for his country and was the Euro 2004 Golden Boot winner, plays for Baník Ostrava.

Unfortunately he isn't playing tonight, but we do get to witness the likes of Paulo Maldini, Alessandro Nesta and Jaap Stam come up against Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher and Djimi Traore.

We can't wait for this one.
