Why Inter Milano will beat Liverpool
Inter is back to playing their best soccer. The defending Serie A champions looked mediocre in a couple of losses, both by 2-0 scores, to Liverpool and Sassuolo and a draw versus Genoa. But a draw against rival AC Milan and a 5-0 win versus Salernitana means Inter Milano’s form has turned positive. Inter knows what they must do to beat Pool on the aggregate and are good enough to get it done.

Final Betting Analysis: Inter Milano versus Liverpool
When you beat your opponent 2-0 on the road in a two-leg aggregate, you can relax, which is one of the reasons the odds don’t make Liverpool a massive favorite. Oddsmakers and handicappers know there’s a chance Pool plays to a draw.
Why lay it all on the line when Inter must outscore Liverpool by a couple of goals to have any shot of winning the aggregate? It makes sense to play it safe hope for a draw, or if anything, a loss by a single goal.
However, this happens at Anfield. The Reds most definitely will want to take it to Inter Milano. Liverpool believes they’re the best soccer club in the world. Every time Pool steps onto the pitch, they want to prove they’re better than not just that day’s opponent, but also rival Manchester City, Bayern, Real Madrid, and any other top club.
By squashing Inter Milano again, Liverpool will be showing their other Champions League rivals they’re the team to beat. Expect the Reds to play for another 2 goals victory. Backing Liverpool on the moneyline is the best play.
