AC Milan manager Carlo Ancelotti claims Liverpool will stop Manchester United from retaining the Champions League trophy after insisting Rafa Benietz's side are the hardest team to play against in Europe.
Ancelotti has faced Liverpool in two Champions League finals and experienced failure and success.
Milan lost the first in 2005 via a penalty shootout after being 3-0 up at half-time but won the European Cup with a 2-1 victory in Athens.
'Liverpool are the hardest team to play against in Europe,' said Ancelotti.
'Benitez is a great coach. He has a well organised defence and theperfect counter-attack. To play against them is always dangerous.
