Liverpool took complete control of their Champions League tie with a 2-0 win over Inter Milan at the San Siro thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool have a comfortable lead heading into the second leg. Inter had chances, with Hakan Calhanoglu coming close after latching on to Ivan Perisic’s cross and hitting the underside of the crossbar with Alisson beat.

Liverpool had 53 percent of the ball possession with 13 shots, while Inter had only 9 shots. Klopp made use of his substitutes in the second half with the likes of Naby Keita and Luis Diaz. Liverpool needed fresh legs and energy in the second half. Also, Firmino was an impactful change as he scored the first goal.

There was a good 20 minutes at the start of the second half when the hosts were controlling the game, but they lacked in front of the goal as they were not able to create any clear chances for Dzeko and Martinez.
