After two late goals by Liverpool at San Siro, The Reds find themselves in a commanding position as they prepare to host Inter for the second leg at Anfield. Read on to uncover the best Champions League betting options.
LIVERPOOL VS INTER
Liverpool managed to secure an important away win at San Siro as a header from Roberto Firmino and a low driven shot by Mo Salah put their side well in command of the tie. Taking a 2-0 lead at Anfield with a host of adoring fans could prove to be the ideal situation for Liverpool fans as they look to advance on to the next stage of the competition
Jurgen Klopp commented on the performance and pointed out that although his side did not enjoy a very good day at the office, it was a good enough performance to see them win on the night. And, while the German manager’s side were limited to just two attempts on goal each shot proved to hit its mark and ultimately make the difference between the sides.
Last time out in the Premier League, Liverpool managed to narrowly win after digging deep against a solid West Ham side. With their most recent victory, Liverpool are now on a seven-win streak in the Premier League and 12 wins in all competitions, displaying some of their best form this season. Additionally, they are the only team unbeaten at home which gives the players more confidence that they can finish off the tie with a flourish.
Mo Salah to score anytime during the game 49/50 (1.98).
A repeat scoreline as in San Siro 2-0 is priced at 7/1 (8.00).
Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals in the match is priced at 11/10 (2.10).
Inter will be disappointed to have conceded late goals against Liverpool at San Siro but they would take encouragement due to the fact that they limited Liverpool and restricted their flow up until the 75th minute. Simone Inzaghi’s men hit the crossbar with Hakan Calhanloglu’s effort from close range and a couple of half-chances from Lautaro Martinez but unlike their upcoming opponents, they were unable to convert their attempts to score into goals.
In their previous outing in the Serie A, Inter sailed past Salernitana with relative ease putting five past them on the day. Lautaro Martinez bagged a hat-trick after a lengthy goal drought and Edin Dzeko scored twice to seal off a perfect weekend ahead of the Champions League clash.
Simone Inzaghi’s side need to be in the same clinical form in front of goal if they are going to have any chance against Liverpool next Tuesday, whilst being disciplined at the back and not conceding too many opportunities.
Lautaro Martinez to score anytime during the match 11/4 (3.75)
Both teams to score 7/10 (2.70)
Inter to win with a correct score of 1-0 at 9/1 (10.00)
LIVERPOOL VS INTER: BETTING ODDS
Liverpool who are the favourites to win are priced at 3/5 (1.60), whilst Inter are priced at 9/2 (5.50), and a draw at 33/10 (4.30).
