The stage is set at Anfield for Liverpool vs Inter Milan on Tuesday night. Both teams battle it out for a place in the quarter finals of this year's Champions League. Anfield is a daunting place for any team in Europe but the Nerazzuri will find it extra difficult going into the second leg with 2-0 deficit. One positive factor for Inter Milan is that the away goals rule is not in application in this year's competition.

Liverpool vs Inter Milan: Match Preview

The Reds have been in spectacular form for the past few months. They have been scoring goals in plenty, and have been amassing win after win. They had also just won the EFL Cup after defeating Chelsea in the Final, and now they are going after the top-most spot in the PL.

As of now, they are trailing by just three points below the first-placed Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Inter have not been in their best shape lately. They have struggled to carry over their form from 2021 to the new year.

And to make things worse for them, they had lost the first leg of the Round of 16, that too at home. Now they have to overturn that deficit against the in-form Jurgen Klopp's men. And they will have to do that at Anfield – where the Reds have been simply unstoppable for the past few years. So, Anfield is ready for another spectacular European night as Liverpool vs Inter Milan takes center stage.
