Why is Liverpool a safe bet to win?
Pool is on a tear. In their last 5, the Reds have rolled to 5 straight victories while outscoring their opponents 12-2. Granted, a couple of the wins were against Norwich City, but the 1-0 victory over West Ham United in their last and the win agianst Chelsea via penalty kicks to take the Carabao Cup trophy both impressed. At Anfield, Pool won’t disappoint their fans.

Why is Inter Milan a safe bet to win?
In the first leg, Inter Milan didn’t show their best. But Inter has turned their form around in recent matches. The 2021 Serie A champs used a 0-0 draw versus rival AC Milan in a Coppa Italia match to leap to a 5-0 victory over Salernitana in their last. The 5-0 win gives Inter enough momentum to hang with Liverpool in the second leg of their Round of 16 battle.

Liverpool vs. Inter Milan Betting Prediction
Liverpool is the better team, but the Reds secured a fantastic 2-0 lead over Inter Milan in the first leg. If Inter was to head to Anfield with any shot of upsetting Pool, they had to play much better at home.
Because they didn’t, the Reds mustn’t lay it all on the line on Tuesday. Instead, Liverpool can play a possession game, holding the ball as much as possible while never allowing Lautaro Martinez and his mates to get off more than 1 or 2 shots on goal.
The more aggressive Inter becomes, the likelier it is for Liverpool to score a goal. But the Reds will decide to instead keep possession and play for a draw. The odds don’t imply a big time win either way, making a tie the best play.
