Liverpool are one of the favorites to win the Champions League and are in fine form in the Premier League, winning four games in a row and Klopp has Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah back from AFCON to boost their European and PL dreams. Liverpool have won the Champions League and reached two finals under Klopp, but they have only reached the last 16 and quarterfinals in the last two campaigns respectively. However, they won all six of their group stage games and have already succeeded in Milan as they beat AC Milan in the group stage.
As for Inter, they are second in Serie A but have a game in-hand over leaders AC Milan and if they win that they go top. Inter have been impacted by selling Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi last summer but Simone Inzaghi is doing a good job to steady the ship in his first season in charge. Inter qualified behind Real Madrid in the group stage, as they finished above Shakhtar Donetsk and Sheriff but did show some cracks. Inter will be the underdogs against Liverpool but they have Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez who can cause problems.
