AC Milan are finally back in the Champions League and yesterday, they were drawn into Group B with Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Porto. This evening, the dates for these games were announced by UEFA.
It was a nerve-racking draw for the Rossoneri fans as when it was Milan’s time to get a group, only A and B were on the table. The former, of course, included Paris Saint-Germain, Man City and RB Leipzig then.
Fortunately, former Milan man Michael Essien made sure the Rossoneri didn’t get that group and got group B instead. This evening, UEFA announced the dates for the group stage games and you can see them below.
September 15: Liverpool vs. Milan
September 28: Milan vs. Atletico
October 19: Porto vs. Milan
November 3: Milan vs. Porto
November 24: Atletico vs. Milan
December 7: Milan vs. Liverpool

Hopefully, the Rossoneri will do well in the competition but it won’t be easy to advance to the next stage. Avoiding a fourth-place finish will be essential but the feeling is that they could do very well.
