Liverpool vs Inter Milan Betting Preview
Liverpool beat West Ham 1-0 over the weekend, a victory that kept them 6 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table, with a game in hand. It was their 12th consecutive win (if we consider as a victory the Carabao Cup final won on penalties against Chelsea), in all competitions. Jurgen Klopp's team conceded only 4 goals and scored 29 goals in the process, despite the absence of Mo Salah and Sadio Manè when the duo was involved in the African Cup of Nations. In the three games played at Anfield in the Group stage, Liverpool beat Milan 3-2 (but the margin could have been much wider), Atletico Madrid 2-0 and FC Porto 2-0.
After a comfortable 5-0 victory against Salernitana, which allowed Inter to leapfrog Napoli and two points behind AC Milan in the Serie A standings, the Nerazzurri will try to overturn the 0-2 deficit from the first leg against Liverpool. To qualify it will be necessary to win this match by three goals, given the change in the rule relating to the value of goals scored away from home. A win with a two-goal difference, on the other hand, would lead the teams to play extra time and, eventually, go on penalties. Mission (almost) impossible despite Simone Inzaghi's team was the best one by far in the San Siro match. Prior to last weekend's win against the rock bottom team in Serie A, Inter Milan were on a 5 games winless streak that included the 1-1 away draw at Napoli, the two 0-0 draws against Genoa and AC Milan (in the Italian Cup) and the home defeat against Sassuolo (0-2).
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Elliott; Salah, Diogo Jota, Mané.
Thiago Alcantara and Roberto Firmino are not fully fit, so we expect Jurgen Klopp to select Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota in the starting XI. The latter will complete the offensive line with Sadio Manè and Mo Salah, with the Colombian Luis Diaz (bought for £80 million in January) ready to play at some stage. In midfield, the youngster Harvey Elliott, one of the Reds' best players in the first leg match, will retain their berth. Fabinho will complete the midfield. In defense, Joel Matip will make room for Ibrahima Konatè. As to the full backs, there are no boubts that Alexander-Arnold and Robertson will feature from the off.
INTER MILAN (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Batons; Dumfries, Vidal, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Lautaro Martinez, Dzeko.
Simone Inzaghi will be without key midfielder Nicolò Barella (suspended), whose absence was a huge blow in the first leg. Roberto Gagliardini and Arturo Vidal are in contention for a starting berth, with the latter being the favorite to complete the midfield department alongside Hakim Calhanoglu and Marcelo Brozovic. As to the wing backs, Ivan Perisic is expected to recover in time while Denzel Dumfries will retain his spot. Robinh Gosens and Matteo Darmian are the possible alternatives on the flanks. No changes are expected at the back with Milan Skriniar, Stefan De Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni expected to protect Samir Handanovic's goal. The surprise could be in the attack, with Joaquin Correa's threatening Edin Dzeko or Lautaro Martinez's starting berth.
Liverpool vs Inter Milan Betting Tips
As already mentioned, the mission for Inter Milan is really hard. Liverpool are still unbeaten this year on their own turf: in 22 games, only Chelsea, Manchester City, Brighton and Arsenal have managed to snatch a draw. For this reason, we are backing Liverpool to win. The Nerazzurri could still manage to score a goal (they were unlucky in the first leg), so the "Both Teams To Score" bet is a good option. As for the correct and probable goalscorers, we recommend to back Liverpool to win 3-1 and Mohamed Salah to score anytime.
