Liverpool beat Inter 2-0 in first leg of Champions League last-16 tie


Milan (AFP) – Liverpool put one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday with a 2-0 win at Inter Milan.

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the last quarter of an hour gave Liverpool a commanding lead ahead of the last-16 second leg at Anfield, which will be played on March 8.

The result was harsh on Italian champions Inter, who dominated the contest at the San Siro for long periods after the break and struck the woodwork through Hakan Calhanoglu in the 16th minute.

However they could not find their way past a Liverpool backline impeccably marshalled by Virgil van Dijk and were punished late on by a Reds team who have now won their last seven matches in all competitions.

The quarters now look a step too far for Inter after making the knockout rounds of the Champions League for the first time in a decade.
