Crisis club Liverpool face an Inter team carrying all before them and on an unbeaten run of 29 games, so who do I prefer ? Liverpool of course !

Anfield on a european night is something else, the whole club, supporters, players and especially the management, realise that their season is on the line tonight and we can expect a really fired up team to take the field. We might just see something special.

The players like Rafa and know that his job is at stake, with Torres and Gerrard back this evening, they should be able to keep the pressure on Inter and the tempo of the game high, which will favour the British side.
Serie A is played at a much slower pace, which is why so many older players are able to extend their careers there. Liverpool should have an advantage in the key midfield area, Cesar is suspended, Jiminez and Stankovic injured, Dacourt and Viera are both very short of match fitness and the tempo might be too high for Figo.

Of course they have plenty of options and will have the returning and well rested Cruz and Ibrahimovic to lead the frontline, a strikeforce to terrorise any defence in Europe.

However, I feel that we will see the real Liverpool tonight and expect them to take a lead to Milan for the second leg.

5 points Liverpool -1/4 ball 2.31 asian line.... now 2.17

Good Luck.
