After a dry run of form in February and a draw against city rivals Milan, Inter have sprung back in form. A 5-0 thrashing of Salernitana at home not only brought the Lautaro-Dzeko strike partnership on the scoresheet but also brought some much-needed confidence back to the midfield. This win has come at a crucial time. Inzaghi’s men will travel to Anfield on Tuesday night to contest the second leg of the Liverpool vs Inter Champions League tie. Two goals down against the mighty English side, do Inter have a trick up their sleeve?
It came as a surprise to many supporters most of whom haven’t followed Inter closely recently that the Nerazzurri managed to dominate the English Club for a good amount of the game. Although it is a task for Inter to match Liverpool’s intensity, the Nerazzurri put up a good show. But Inter let two late goals ruin the night as they also let opportunities go begging in the first leg. Liverpool come into the second leg with scrappy wins over Chelsea, Norwich and West Ham.
Liverpool vs Inter Statistics and Encounters
Scoring 5 goals against any opposition is a big deal. And doing that against a Salernitana side that hadn’t been beaten in the last four games is not bad at all. Inter need to carry this composer to Anfield if they have even the slightest imagination of putting on a fightback in the second leg. A fully fit squad should definitely be a boost for Inzaghi
