rip: 0:1 Roberto Firmino (75.), 0:2 Salah (83.)
Joker Roberto Firmino (75) and striker Mohamed Salah (83) scored the two late goals for Liverpool. Former Hoffenheim player Firmino, who came on as a second-half substitute, reacted the fastest after Andy Robertson’s corner kick.
Both teams barely fall behind in the first round. However, Klopp’s team unsuccessfully tried to control the match. Because Inter used many small mistakes by the British with former Bundesliga professionals, Arturo Vidal, Edin Dzeko, Ivan Perisic and Hakan Calhanoglu in the initial formation to make promising transformations.
Liverpool had their first important chance with Senegalese African Cup of Nations champion Sadio Mane (14). However, the hosts had their best chance before the break when Calhanoglu hit the crossbar (16) with a pass from Perisic, who won the double with Borussia Dortmund under Klopp in 2012.
Dzeko Scores – Offside
In the second half, Klopp’s side received a shock moment 15 minutes later: Dzeko rushed in after a long pass to put the Lombards ahead, but the goal was ruled out because the former Wolfsburg player was offside with difficulty. Inter, who were still unable to use their national player Ruben Goossens (a muscle injury), which occurred in January, increased the pressure more and more during this stage. The Reds only get relief measures.
Firmino’s goal was even more surprising. Another inattention in the Inter defense was used by Salah shortly thereafter to make a decision.
