Real Madrid consigned us to a 2-0 defeat in the tournament opener on Tuesday before hosts Bayern Munich toppled AC Milan 3-0 with goals from Bernat, Gotze and Lewandowski.

We've had two famous European ties with the Serie A side.

Back in 1972, we beat Milan 2-1 at the Lane and then drew 1-1 in the San Siro in the semi-final of the UEFA Cup to book a place in the final against Wolves. We went on to lift the trophy 3-2 on aggregate.

More recently, we enjoyed a memorable 1-0 win back at the San Siro - Peter Crouch on target - before a goalless drew at the Lane to win the Champions League Round of 16 tie 1-0 on aggregate.
