LIVERPOOL face Inter Milan at the San Siro tonight in their first meeting against the Italian side in 14 years.
Jurgen Klopp‘s men pit their wits against the Serie A leaders in the Champions League Round of 16.
And the Reds have history on their side ahead of the meeting as they knocked out Inter at this stage in 2008.
The Merseyside giants beat Inter 2-0 at Anfield in February 2008 thanks to late goals from Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt.
They would go on to keep another clear sheet in the second leg as Fernando Torres scored the only goal of the game.
Incredibly, only Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the Inter starting XI is still playing today.
Though unfortunately for the club’s fans, he is now plying his trade for their rivals AC Milan.
Brazilian right-back Maicon is also yet to hang up his boots, though the 40-year-old has been without a club since leaving Tre Penne last summer.

Meanwhile Dutch forward Ryan Babel is going strong at Galatasaray with the 35-year-old featuring in 28 games in all competitions this term.
All three of Liverpool’s substitutes from the clash 14 years ago have also retired from the game.
John Arne Riise, Jermaine Pennant and Yossi Benayoun all came on in the second half against the ten men of Inter, who had Nicolas Burdisso sent off.
