Instead of Red Bull Salzburg - Inter. The repeated draw of the eighth finals of the Champions League was not in favor of Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp does not care about that. He is happy that he will be a guest again at the famous stadium in the City of Fashion, and he also points out that UEFA acted correctly by deciding to repeat the drawing of balls.
Recall, the confusion was caused by the pair Manchester United - Villarreal, who played in the same group and automatically could not meet in the round of 16. "I watched the draw on television and thought, 'They can't let it stay like this, there's no way.'
The draw definitely needed to be repeated," Klopp told Liverpool's website. The duel Liverpool - Inter is one of the derbies of this round of the competition. It is interesting that the Reds played against Milan in the group and with the 2: 1 victory at San Siro in the last round - which meant nothing to them - they eliminated the Rossoneri from Europe for this season.
I had to wait 54 years to play at San Siro for the first time, and now I will do it twice in three months. So that's great news! Everything is OK! It will be a real duel of the Champions League and I can't wait ", the German strategist is satisfied with another visit to the cult stadium.
Klopp will prepare his team and an exciting February awaits us when we will enjoy the Champions League matches.
However, when he talks about the quality of the rival, he makes it in a much more serious tone. "They are first on the table of the Italian championship, a good team in shape.
We will see what the situation will be in February. We know Sanchez and Dzeko from the Premier League, but Lautaro Martinez is currently one of the most exciting strikers in the world." "Simeone Inzaghi is there as coach.
This is his first season, but the team was the champion in the past. Liverpool's path is never easy, but anything is possible, so we are optimistic," concluded Klopp. It can be said that this is one of the most interesting matches of the eighth finals of the Champions League.
Liverpool were unlucky in the re-draw, but given the form they are in and the quality they have, they have a good chance of passing, although Inter is perhaps the toughest team they could get, with PSG Klopp will prepare his team and an exciting February awaits us when we will enjoy the Champions League matches.
