Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips: Liverpool targeting more success in Milan
Preview and odds for Wednesday’s Champions League clash
Jurgen Klopp will be looking for his second win in Milan in this season’s Champions League as we pick out some Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
Liverpool beat Inter’s city rivals AC Milan 2-1 on foreign soil to round off their successful Group B campaign in the pre-Christmas stage of this competition and head into this last-16 tie as the 11/10 favourites to take a lead back to Anfield next month.
The hosts are only one point behind AC Milan in the race for the Scudetto and can’t be underestimated having lost just one of their last 11 matches. They are listed at 12/5 for victory in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
Wednesday’s match at the San Siro kicks off at 8pm and is live on BT Sport.
Milan seeking San Siro magic
Inter are making their first appearance in the last 16 for 10 years having progressed from a tricky group featuring Real Madrid and they could prove a tough nut to crack for their Premier League opponents.
They have lost only once at home in Serie A this season and have also scored the first goal in 10 of those matches. Simone Inzaghi’s men can be backed at 13/10 to do so again on Wednesday night.
They have a fine defensive record, with only Napoli conceding fewer goals than Inter in Serie A this season, while only Lazio have managed to score more than two goals in a game against the Nerazzurri this term.
Edin Dzeko has stepped into Romelu Lukaku’s boots with aplomb since his arrival from Roma and he has 10 goals in Serie A this term, while also hitting a further three in the group stage of this competition.
The former Manchester City man has scored the last three times he has faced Liverpool for his former clubs and is 3/1 to be Inter’s first scorer in the match, while he can be backed at 5/1 to grab the first goal of the game in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.

Klopp’s European dreams
The Reds progressed to the knockout stages with a perfect record in Group B and with only three other clubs scoring more goals than them over the course of the six group-stage matchdays.
They have entertained in both the Premier League and Europe this term and having added Luis Diaz to their ranks in the transfer window, Klopp looks to have all the necessary firepower at his disposal to have a real crack at securing a second Champions League trophy during his time at Anfield.
Liverpool scored at least two goals in each of their group games and it is 20/23 for the Reds to continue that trend in this fixture, while there were two or more first-half goals in all but one of those games. Exactly two goals for the first half is 3/1 in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips, while it is 31/20 for over 1.5 in the first 45.
Klopp will also have Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to unleash on Inter Milan following their return from the Africa Cup of Nations. Salah is something of a lucky charm for Liverpool in the Champions League and they have only lost once across the 29 matches in this competition that he has found the net.
The Egyptian King fired home seven in the group stage and is 13/10 to add to his tally at any time here, while over 2.5 goals in the game combined with Salah taking four shots or more is 15/8 in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
These two last met in the Champions League at the same stage in 2008, with Liverpool winning the tie 3-0 on aggregate.
Fernando Torres scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win for the Reds at the San Siro and a repeat of that scoreline is 17/2 in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
The Reds have a great record against Italian opposition in Champions League knockout football, losing only two of their seven games against Serie A’s finest.
They have kept a clean sheet in two of the last three times they have played away from home in a two-legged match against Italian opposition and a clean sheet for the Merseyside outfit is 12/5 in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
The visitors also conceded away from home in all three of their group games. Therefore, it might make sense to back both teams to score at 8/15, while that brings both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win into the equation at 5/4 in Inter Milan v Liverpool betting tips.
