Why bet on Inter Milano versus Liverpool?
After losing plenty of quality players during the summer transfer window, including star striker Romelu Lukaku, many believed Inter Milano would fall apart. But Inter boasts one of the top midfields in soccer with Nicolo Barella, Lautaro Martinez, and Ivan Perisic. Also, this happens on Inter Milano’s pitch, which gives them an edge.

Inter Milano vs Liverpool Betting Analysis
Liverpool has become one of the chalks to win the Champions League. The Reds are loaded at almost every position. But on Wednesday, they play a cohesive unit on their pitch.
Inter Milano should have no trouble controlling the middle of the field. As great as Pool is, few, if any, soccer clubs can send quality midfielders like Martinez, Barella, and Perisic to the pitch at the same time.
All three play together well, all three can score, and all three play defense. Lautaro has quickly become one of the best players in the world on both sides of the field.
Martinez should mark Salah in this. That will put pressure on Joto and Diaz to score goals. Inter isn’t a lock to pull off the upset victory. Signs, though, are pointing to an upset happening. The Inter Milano moneyline is the play.
