Liverpool vs Inter Milan predicted XIs: Thiago injury update from Jurgen Klopp

Published: 14:30, 6 March 2022

Liverpool will be looking to seal passage into the Champions League quarter-finals when they host Inter Milan at Anfield on Tuesday evening (20:00 UK time).

Jurgen Klopp’s men are in the driver’s seat following their 2-0 success on Italian soil last time out. Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were on hand for the six-time European champions.

As for Inter, they need to create a piece of Champions League history as just once before has a team lost the first leg of a knockout stage tie by two or more goals at home and still gone on to progress, with Manchester United doing so against PSG in the 2018/19 round of 16 (0-2 at home and 3-1 away). This is the only progression by a team in this first leg scenario in 41 previous instances in the competition’s history.

Liverpool team news vs Inter Milan: Klopp hopeful of Thiago return

Jurgen Klopp has a near full squad to choose from. Joel Matip missed Liverpool’s meeting with West Ham due to illness while Thiago could return for the Merseyside giants after sustaining a hamstring injury moments before their League Cup showdown meeting with Chelsea that left him in tears.

“It was a very emotional moment,” Klopp revealed. “We were all surprised. I watched the whole warm- up and didn’t see anything, then we came in and the physios told me he feels something in the hamstring.

“Then we had to make the decision he could not start. I didn’t like that he didn’t feel good, but the desire to play I liked. He’s fine again but not fit. Like always, you don’t know exactly. Weekend not sure, maybe Milan, after definitely.”

Inter Milan team news vs Liverpool: Suspended Barella warns Reds

Inter couldn’t have asked for a better tuneup; Simone Inzaghi’s side registered an empathic 5-0 win over Salernitana which saw Lautaro Martínez grab a hat-trick, but they go to Anfield without influential midfielder Nicolò Barella but the Euro 2020 winner has nevertheless warned Klopp’s men to not underestimate the Nerazzurri.

“This evening’s win is certainly a confidence-booster, but in general playing at Anfield is such a wonderful experience, we shouldn’t feel any fear, only hunger,” he told reporters.

“It’s going to take something remarkable to turn it around, but then Inter are ‘crazy’ and anything can happen.”
