The third Dream Team XI in the series focuses on the Italian giants AC Milan.

The Rossoneri missed out on a Champions League place this year and without their participation, European Cup football just doesn't feel quite right.

Their revenge victory over Liverpool in 2007 was the seventh time the club had lifted football’s most glittering club prize. Of the starting XI on that May night, two make it into the Dream Team to play alongside Milan legends with enough silverware between them to pay Sir Fred Goodwin’s pension for at least the next few years.

Controversially, Giovanni Lodetti misses out on the holding midfielder’s role; there’s no room for Jose Altafini upfront; and Filippo Galli and Alessandro Nesta are deemed surplus to requirements at the back.

Do you agree with selection and how would they fare up against the Real Madrid and Liverpool Dream Teams of weeks one and two?
