Twenty days ago, Liverpool beat Inter 2-0 at San Siro in Milan. This Tuesday, the two meet again, but this time, the venue is Anfield. At home, Liverpool is without a loss in the Champions League since 2020. Can Inter put an end to that?
Well, even if they do, it won’t necessarily mean knocking Liverpool out of the competition. To advance to the next phase, Inter needs to win by at least three goals difference.

Liverpool Looking for Another Win over Inter
Liverpool and Inter have met only three times in the Champions League in history. All three of those saw Liverpool winning. The most recent of those was a 2-0 win three weeks ago when we saw Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scoring a goal each.
Salah will feature in Tuesday’s game, but Firmino won’t. The Brazilian striker is out with an injury, but that probably doesn’t worry Liverpool much. It’s because their coach Jurgen Klopp has plenty of offensive weapons at his disposal.
With 27 goals across all competitions, Salah is Liverpool’s top scorer. Behind him is Diogo Jota with 17, followed by Sadio Mane with 14.
Apart from being amazing in the attack, the Reds have also been superb at the back. They have conceded just 7 goals in the 15 games played in 2022.
Inter’s Focus is Not on the Champions League
After losing 2-0 at home, Inter players probably realize that getting to the next stage of the Champions League is almost a mission impossible. This goes especially for the fact that the game is played at Anfield in Liverpool. On the road, Inter is without a single win in 2022, with four straight draws.
Sure, they aren’t going to surrender without a fight, but the fact is that their no.1 priority right now is the Italian Serie A.
The Nerazzurri are the reigning champions of the Italian top-flight, but defending the title isn’t going to be easy. It’s because there are (at least) two other teams that have pretty much the same chances of getting ahold of the trophy as them – AC Milan and Napoli.
Picks: Liverpool to Win; Over 2.5 Goals
