nter Milan vs Liverpool LIVE!
Liverpool took a firm grip on their Champions League tie with Inter Milan as late goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah earned them a 2-0 victory at a deflated San Siro in their last-16 first leg.
Inter had the better of the first-half chances, but Jurgen Klopp’s side were resilient if not at their very best as they held the hosts at bay before inflicting two damaging blows on their opponents.
Having struggled to create many opportunities, Klopp rang the changes in the second-half, and one of those substitutes came up trumps – Firmino flicking home from a corner to break the deadlock in the 75th minute.
With their resistance broken, the errors started to creep in for Inter and Salah pounced when they failed to clear a long ball into the box to put the game to bed seven minutes from time.
Even with the away goals rule no longer in force, the victory puts the 2019 Champions League winners in a commanding position ahead of the return leg on March 8 at Anfield.
“Tough place to come, a very good team, difficult to break down and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the crowd. Set-piece again and it s good strength of ours. A good result to take back to Anfield.
“You try everything and they did very well defensively, but Bobby found the space and a great goal. It is a well-deserved win, very hard work.
“Everyone expects to be under pressure, it is the Champions League. The message before was you need to be ready to suffer and do the hard work. It is a very good performance, clean sheet and happy days.”
Job done for Liverpool, as they win 2-0 at the San Siro thanks to goals from Firmino and Salah.
Inter were really impressive for much of that second-half, but they couldn’t make the most of the pressure they put on the Reds.
Liverpool made them pay, and now they head to Anfield with complete control of the tie.
90+1 mins: Three minutes added on.
Not a huge amount of pace to the match now – both sides know the first-leg is pretty much done.
89 mins: Inter pushing for something to take to Anfield, but the cross deflects straight into Alisson’s arms.
Looks like it’s going to be a perfect night for Klopp’s side.
86 mins: Ball into the box wasn’t cleared properly, fell to Salah and his shot wrong-footed Handanovic and found the back of the net.
Milner coming on for Liverpool, who will just want to see this out now.
NOW THEY HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL!
Liverpool take charge of the tie and Klopp absolutely loves it.
80 mins: Perisic with a snap shot from distance, just over the bar!
Really good effort, Alisson just about confident it was going over. Inter really need something in the next ten minutes you feel…
78 mins: Inter will be absolutely devastated with that, they’ve been so good this half but they’re behind.
Nearly gets worse for them as Mane finds himself in behind, just about scrambled behind for a corner.
