Liverpool vs Inter Milan Prediction

Inter Milan are coming into this match playing in very good form recently but they have not been playing as well as Liverpool has been recently. Inter Milan have been very good when playing at home though and with this matchup having 2 legs in it, Inter Milan do have a slight advantage here being in the first leg here at home. This is a situation where Liverpool may play better on defense here and try to escape with at least a draw so they can come back home and win it in leg 2. They also have a lot more talent on their side though and they have a much stronger attack than Inter Milan does. Both clubs have very good defense though and Inter Milan loves to use a formation with 3 defenders and 5 midfielders which really boosts their ability to keep balls out of their net and prevent attacks from getting in their box. Liverpool has a very good defense as well that Inter Milan will not be able to penetrate as easily and will have to pick their moments to attack in this match. This should be a more defensive match that will likely end in a draw here going back to Liverpool for the 2nd leg.
