Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi insists he’ll select his strongest XI against Champions League opponents Liverpool
Inter must overcome a 2-0 deficit to get to the quarterfinals, but they must also contend with a tough domestic schedule.
Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi believes his team is capable of defeating Liverpool in the Champions League.
Inzaghi said, “We had a tricky game on Friday but we turned it in our favour and dominated the match. We needed a win like that on a psychological level. We’re ready for Liverpool now.
The Nerazzurri will take the field at Anfield on Tuesday evening needing to overcome a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at San Siro in order to advance to the quarter-finals.
“The first-leg result was very harsh on us because we played very well indeed. It’s going to be extremely tough at Anfield against one of the best teams in Europe but our motivation is sky-high.
“Inter hadn’t reached the knockout stages for many years. We did well in the group and got a bit unlucky with the draw. You have to improve one step at a time. We played well in the first leg and we’ll look to give them a game at Anfield too. It will help us improve in any case. Playing matches of this level is a unique experience for a footballer.”
