Despite losing at Anfield last night, Liverpool’s two-goal lead from the first leg was enough to secure a spot in the Champions League’s final eight.
Inter Milan, who won 1-0 on the night, gave it their all in a game that was quite open.
The Reds, on the other hand, can almost certainly expect to extend their first-leg lead. Efforts by Jol Matip, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohammed Salah (twice) all came up short.
Inter’s Lautaro Martnez’s long-range shot past Alisson at his far post on the hour mark, turning the game on its head and leaving Anfield astonished.
However, only two minutes after scoring, former Arsenal and Manchester United player Alexis Sánchez received a second yellow card for a dangerous challenge, thereby ending any dreams of a memorable comeback.
Inter’s momentum was effectively halted by the red card, and Liverpool dominated the last 30 minutes, with Salah wasting a golden opportunity to seal the tie in the dying embers.
Liverpool has advanced to the quarter-finals of the tournament for the fourth time in five years.
