Inter Milan and Liverpool should deliver one enjoyable and interesting matchup on Wednesday night. The two former European champions with rich and colorful backgrounds are more than ready to start a battle that should include lots of goals. 

The respective offenses are loaded with talent and quality and are the primary weapon for both Nerazzurri and the Reds. Also, Inzaghi and Klopp prefer to see their teams attacking, no matter the result, because that makes them comfortable and secure. This should be a gunfight in both legs, and we can’t wait for it to start.

Inter Milan has had one loss, three draws, and six wins in the last 10 games. The situation is much different when looking only at the home events because Nerazzurri has six wins in seven contests. They scored two or more goals in five of those matches, and the same number ended with over 2.5 scores and both teams to net.

The game plan is simple. When Inter has the ball in its possession, pretty much all the players are attacking, with the target man being Dzeko or Alexis and Lautaro circling around these two.

Inter has a very creative midfield, with players who are perfectly synchronized with the attackers. It is no wonder why this crew scores two or more goals in more than two-thirds of its events. Liverpool has the same style of play -attack, attack and attack. That is Jurgen Klopp’s signature, with the German insisting on such a system in any club he led. And so far, it brought nothing but the best for the Reds. 

The club from Anfield has six straight victories right now, and only the last one in Burnley didn’t end with them scoring twice or more. During this stretch, the combined goal difference of the Reds was 14-2, and they posted four clean sheets.

Liverpool received a big boost before this game, as Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah returned from the African Cup of Nations. The best players of this unit played in Burnley, and looked solid, meaning that they should be 100% ready for this event.

The hosts won’t have Robin Gossens, who is injured, the same as Joaquin Correa and Alessandro Bastoni. Meanwhile, Nicolo Barella will miss both legs against the Reds due to a red-card suspension.

Divock Origi is the only one unavailable for playing in Liverpool.

The most recent clash dates almost 14 years ago, when Inter and Liverpool met at the same stage of the UCL knockout stage. The Reds were better, eliminating the Italians 3-0 on aggregate, 2-0 at home and 0-1 on the road.
