Inter Milan defeated Liverpool by 0-1 in a fierce Champions League round of 16 2nd leg clash on Tuesday night.
A stunning 61 minutes goal by Lautaro Martinez gave Inter Milan hope of qualifying into the 2022 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, Naija News reports.
Jurgen Klopp‘s men, however, held tight the visitors to end the Tuesday night game on a goal defeat, thereby winning 2-1 on aggregate.
Despite the defeat, Liverpool crept into a fourth Champions League quarter-final in five years. The match loss was Liverpool’s first Anfield defeat in a year, Naija News understands.
The Reds scaled to the next stage of the competition, courtesy of their two-goal first-leg advantage.
Simone Inzaghi’s men would have probably created more chances but Alexis Sanchez’s red card for a second bookable offence wrecked the visitors, leaving them to 10 players against Liverpool’s full squad.
On the other hand, Liverpool made attempts to equalize and possibly put the result beyond doubt, however, Mohamed Salah hit both posts in the second half and couldn’t convert any to a goal for the Reds.
Liverpool’s defender, Joel Matip was also denied a goal after his header hit the top of the post, returning the ball to his opponent.
