The main statistics for the Rossoneri's matchday three encounter in the Champions League

Having gotten through Hellas Verona at home, the Rossoneri are set to return to Champions League action. After narrow defeats against Liverpool and Atlético Madrid, Porto v AC Milan is a crucial match to keep alive our chances of qualifying out of the group. As we wait for kick-off, we look at some statistics and trivia surrounding the matchday three clash in Group B.

1- Porto and AC Milan have not met since the 2003 European Super Cup Final, when Porto were the UEFA Cup champions and AC Milan had just won the Champions League. The Rossoneri won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Andriy Shevchenko.

2- Including qualifiers, seven of AC Milan's eight away games in UEFA competitions in Portugal have ended in a draw (1W); the only victory came against Porto in March 1993 (1-0 thanks to a goal from Jean-Pierre Papin).

3- AC Milan duo Rafael Leão and Brahim Díaz have scored or provided an assist in both of their appearances in this season’s Champions League.

4- The last AC Milan player to have scored in three consecutive appearances in the tournament was Zlatan Ibrahimović in 2011/12 (five).
