When: Tuesday 8 March 2022, Kick-off 20:00
On Tuesday night, Liverpool host Italian champions Inter at Anfield in the second leg of the last-16 of the Champions League. The hosts are 2-0 up from the reverse fixture at the San Siro and will be highly confident of progression to the quarter-finals of the competition.
The home side continued their recent good run of results with a 1-0 home win over West Ham last time out. The victory means that Jurgen Klopp’s team is now unbeaten in their previous 15 matches in all competitions, having won 11 of their last 12 competitive games.
The story of Liverpool’s recent history in the Champions League is a positive one, as the Reds are unbeaten in their last eight matches in the competition. That good run of European form includes seven straight victories.
The men from Merseyside have been prolific of late in the European football’s primary competition, scoring at least two goals in their last seven games. At the other end of the pitch, Klopp’s team has kept four straight clean sheets in the Champions League too.
The Nerazzurri ended an underwhelming run of form last time out by hammering Salernitana 5-0 at the San Siro. The win aided Inter’s Scudetto challenge, as they went into that game against the Granata on a five-game winless run. Before the victory, Inter’s problems lay in attack, as they had failed to score in their previous four matches.
However, strike duo Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko returned to form in the win, grabbing a hat-trick and a brace respectively. The pair looked far more dangerous than in previous matches. If they are to have any chance of giving the Reds a game, then the forward pair will have to be at their best.
Inter’s recent record in the Champions League has been great, as the Nerazzurri have now won just three of their last eight matches in Europe’s elite competition. The first leg defeat followed a 2-0 defeat at Real Madrid in the last game of the group stages.
Their recent Champions League games have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last eight matches.
The Nerazzurri have an inconsistent recent record on their travels in the Champions League, having won just three of their last 11 away matches.
Liverpool have been a winning machine of late in all competitions. We expect the home side to record the victory. A Liverpool home win very rarely offers much value. The Liverpool half-time/full-time offers better value, so that is our first tip. Our second recommendation is for Luis Diaz to be an anytime goalscorer. The Colombian has shown flashes of his ability already at Liverpool since his January move from Porto.
Our tips: We are backing Liverpool half-time/full-time at odds of 6/4 and/or Luis Diaz to be an anytime goalscorer at odds of 11/2. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
