Inter vs Liverpool: team news, tactics, and score prediction

Bastoni will come back for Inter Milan after recovering from his ankle injury. He will be crucial for this game as he would face Mo Salah on the left flank. However, Inzaghi will miss Barella as he will be serving his suspension. The Italian midfielder got a red card against Real Madrid in Inter’s last Champions League game. So, Vidal is expected to come in for the 25-year old. Inzaghi would like to go with his preferred front two of Lautaro and Dzeko. He might be tempted to play Dimarco in place of Perisic to defend against Trent as he is much more capable of defending. But, Perisic has stepped up in big games so, he could retain his position.

Klopp might start Diogo Jota in place of Firmino, who started against Burnley on the weekend. The Portuguese can cause trouble to Inter Milan’s backline as he is clever with his movement. Thiago could come in for Keita in the midfield as the Spaniard will give Liverpool more control at the center of the park.

Score Prediction: Inter Milan 1-1 Liverpool.
