Ranieri said the match would be difficult to predict. According to him, the Reds – Liverpool’s nickname – is a strong team but Inter in the hands of Simone Inzaghi also cannot be underestimated because they are currently perched at the top of the Serie A Italia 2021/2022 standings.
However, the coach who is now in charge of Watford revealed there are two things that Lautaro Martinez and colleagues must pay attention to to overthrow Jurgen Klopp’s troops. First, the Nerazzurri – Inter’s nickname – should not feel small in front of Liverpool, then they must be able to minimize mistakes.

“First of all, they have to face both games with determination and without feeling inferior. Never underestimate anything in football,” Ranieri said.
“Secondly, they have to limit mistakes. Mistakes can be very important in the Champions League, especially against big clubs.”
For your information, in fact, the Nerazzurri faced Ajax Amsterdam in the first draw. However, after a re-draw due to a technical error, they got a more difficult opponent.
In the first leg meeting, Inter will host the Reds first on 16 February 2022. Only after that, they will travel to Anfield on March 8, 2022.
On Liverpool’s first visit to the San Siro in the Champions League this season, Mohamed Salah et al managed to win 2-1 over AC Milan. They also dashed city rivals Inter’s hopes of qualifying for the last 16 after years of absence from the highest caste competition on the European continent.
