Inter Milan v Liverpool Betting Preview
Inter Milan played three big matches in the last 10 days, recording a defeat, a victory and a draw. After the KO in the derby against AC Milan (1-2), the Nerazzurri beat Roma 2-0 in the Italian Cup and drew 1-1 away against Napoli last weekend. Simone Inzaghi's now sit second in the Serie A standings, one point shy of their city rivals, but the Nerazzurri have one game in hand. Their Champions League quest was quite troubled: the double defeat against Real Madrid and the goalless draw against Shakthar Donetsk had put qualification into question. In the two matches against Real, Inter did not look disfigured but still seemed far from the level necessary to compete against the top European clubs.
Liverpool arrive at San Siro on the back of 6 consecutive victories in all competitions and an unbeaten streak of 9 games. The Reds recorded a narrow victory against Burnley last weekend, but despite their excellent results, they are far from the Premier League summit: Manchester City have opened a 9 points gap over the Merseysiders (but the Reds have one game in hand). Jurgen Klopp's team has a huge offensive potential but the German manager has also fixed the defense: Van Dijk & co. have only conceded 2 goals in the last 7 outings. In the Champions League, Liverpool were dominant as never before this year: 6 out of 6 wins in the group that included tough teams like AC Milan, FC Porto and Atletico Madrid. In the double match against the Rossoneri, the Reds won 3-2 at home and 2-1 at San Siro.
Klopp’s men come into this clash as firm favourites, with the 11/10 the highest odds with William Hill. The draw is backable at 11/4 with Betfred while Inter Milan are 27/10 to win with Unibet.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
INTER MILAN (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Batons; Dumfries, Vidal, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez.
Simone Inzaghi will not have the suspended Nicolò Barella (not even for the return match) but the good news comes from the infirmary, as Alessandro Bastoni should recover in time for the big match. The three man backline should be completed by the "usual" Milan Skriniar and Stefan De Vrij while Arturo Vidal should be preferred to Roberto Gagliardini and Matias Vecino for the vacant spot in midfield. On the left, Ivan Perisic is the in-form player, while Denzel Dumfries should get the nod over Matteo Darmian for the right wing back berth after the good performance against Napoli. Up front, Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez are competing for a place next to Edin Dzeko. Both Joaquin Correa and the new signing Robin Gosens are unavailable.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, J.Henderson, N.Keïta; Salah, Diogo Jota, Mané.
Jurgen Klopp has no fresh injury concerns and can select his best starting XI. Mo Salah and Sadio Mane, who returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, started against Burnley at the weekend and will retain their berth. Diogo Jota is expected to complete the front trio, although January signing Luis Diaz is available despite playing for Porto in the group stage. Jordan Henderson will be the playmaker in midfield, with Fabinho and Naby Keita favorites over Thiago Alcantara and James Milner. In defense, Joel Matip will be Virgil Van Dijk's partner, with Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold confirmed in the role of full-backs. The only missing player is Divock Origi..
Our Inter Milan v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool are a cynical and experienced team while Inter still have a lot to improve in this respect. Furthermore, the way of playing of the Nerazzurri this year can favor the counterbreaks of the Reds' front trio. The Nerazzurri's backline did not seem flawless in the last month (especially De Vrij) and Bastoni, among other things, is not fully fit. We therefore expect a high-scoring game. The 2-2 draw could satisfy both teams: Inter Milan would still be in the running for qualification, Liverpool would have the home advantage in the 2nd leg. As to goalscorer bets, watch out for the Reds' set pieces: Van Dijk, Matip and Fabinho know how to take advantage of Alexander-Arnold's perfect assists. Otherwise, we recommend to grab WIlliam Hill's super boost on either Jota or Salah to score.
