Liverpool vs Inter: team news, tactics, and score prediction
Perisic had to miss the Salernitana game because of a muscle injury but he could be in contention for this match. However, Inzaghi has plenty of options for the left flank and he could start Gosens who came from the bench against Salernitana and got an assist. He will have to defend well against Trent as the 23-year old has been creating loads of chances for Liverpool. Inter will dearly miss Barella for this match as he will be serving his two-game ban. Arturo Vidal will be ready to take his place and play alongside Brozovic and Calhanoglu.
Klopp can deploy his best 11 however, Firmino, Thiago, and Matip have just started training with the squad. But, with Jota back, Klopp can have a front three of Mane Jota and Salah with Diaz as an option from the bench. Naby Keita can start in the midfield three along with Fabinho and Henderson. Konate could retain his spot as he had a great game in the 1st leg.
Score Prediction: Liverpool 1-2 Inter Milan.
