Liverpool have secured a 2-0 win over Inter in the first leg of their round-of-16 UCL clash at San Siro. Roberto Firmino came off the bench to nod the Reds ahead from Andy Robertson’s corner with a glancing effort. Mohamed Salah then doubled their advantage as his deflected strike found the back of the net. As a result, Jurgen Klopp’s team are in a commanding position heading into the second leg at Anfield, leaving the Nerazzurri with a mammoth task to overturn the deficit.

Effective Liverpool

For most of the first half, the match didn’t look like one Liverpool could win without conceding.

That was how good Inter Milan were able to attack the break. Before their first goal against Liverpool didn’t dominate the game in every area. The Italian Champions gave a good account of themselves till Luis Diaz came on to win that corner for Liverpool.

It goes to show the level of a team like Liverpool. They will always be dangerous and it doesn’t matter if they’re playing well or not.


Sluggish Bayern

Bayern dominated the second half, but almost found themselves 2-0 down if not for a good save followed by Pavard’s last-ditch block. Coman was easily the visitors’ best player, and he poked in from close range in the 90th minute to ensure they avoided defeat.

Bayern Munich looked Toothless and Sluggish against Salzburg yesterday. The Bundesliga giants were almost beaten by the Austrian Champions and deservedly so. Robert Lewandowski looked ordinary against a Salzburg side that were full of running. Karim Adeyemi and Chukwubuike Adamu gave the Bavarians a lot to think about ahead of the second leg in Munich.
