Champions League: Liverpool Cruise Past Inter Milan 2-0

After scoring two late goals against Inter Milan in the San Siro, Liverpool moved closer to the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Reds appeared to be heading for a goalless draw in the first leg in Italy until Roberto Firmino got on the end of Andrew Robertson’s corner to put his side ahead.

With a deflected strike from inside the box, Mohamed Salah added a second, giving Jurgen Klopp’s team a commanding lead heading into the second leg on March 8 at Anfield.

Inter hit the crossbar through Hakan Alhanoglu and dominated the second half for long minutes before Firmino scored in the 75th minute.

When the two sides meet in the last leg next month, Liverpool will be heavy favourites to progress after scoring from their only two attempts on target.

At the age of 18 years and 318 days, midfielder Harvey Elliott made history by being the youngest player ever to start a match in the competition for Liverpool.

An injury to Portugal forward Diogo Jota, who was replaced by goalscorer Firmino at the start of the second half after sustaining an ankle injury, was the only setback on an otherwise positive night for the Reds.
