A Dominant Liverpool Performance At San Siro Was Unlikely. Despite Winning The First Leg 2-0, Inter Milan Deserved To Be In This Stage Of The Competition.
Hakan Calhanoglu hit the post in the first half, almost giving Inter the lead. Inter Milan were vulnerable when Liverpool counterattacked.
Ivan Perisic led a personal march against Alexander-Arnold in a goalless first half, demonstrating Inter's ability to contain Klopp's dangerous strikers.
The first-leg loss worried Inter. Like in the previous month's Milan derby, Inzaghi's team dominated. A goal changed this team's mindset. Afraid, insecure, and shifted
Inter Milan were also the better team for portions of the second half but failed to covert any of their multiple chances
Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez, especially, were not clinical enough in front of the net.
After 70 minutes, Roberto Firmino scored a header from a corner kick, and Simone Inzaghi's team lost confidence. Soon after, Mohamed Salah scored again.
The Reds hope they don't have to face them every week. I'm proud of the team, but not our best moments. It started with a dread goal.
