Simone Inzaghi will not be losing hope as he claims to make it a tough game for Liverpool at the Anfield Stadium in the Champions League return leg.

Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi has stated that his side will make I tough for Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League.

The Italian side will travel to Liverpool for the second leg of the Champions League with 2 goals down from first leg.

Though Inzaghi admits Liverpool are one of the best team in Europe but nevertheless believes Inter Milan will make it a tough one for the Reds.

Speaking ahead of the game at Anfield Inzaghi said: “The first-leg result was very harsh on us because we played very well indeed. It’s going to be extremely tough at Anfield against one of the best teams in Europe but our motivation is sky-high.

“We start the game at a huge disadvantage and obviously scoring in the first half could make a big difference. It’s going to be difficult but we’ve had three days to prepare for it. The lads are focused and know what to expect. Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe and they’re an even tougher proposition on their own patch.

“Inter hadn’t reached the knockout stages for many years. We did well in the group and got a bit unlucky with the draw. You have to improve one step at a time. We played well in the first leg and we’ll look to give them a game at Anfield too. It will help us improve in any case. Playing matches of this level is a unique experience for a footballer.”

Inter Milan won their last game in the League against Salernitana which Inzaghi believes will be a boost for them in the Champions League.

“We had a tricky game on Friday but we turned it in our favour and dominated the match. We needed a win like that on a psychological level. We’re ready for Liverpool now.”

Inzaghi further stated that he will not consider resting player against Liverpool because of the Serie A.

“Hopefully there won’t be time to consider that. It’s a tough game and we’ve played lots of matches recently that have taken a lot out of us both mentally and physically. You’re always fired up for games like this.

“Everyone is available except [Nicolo] Barella, who is suspended, and [Aleksandar] Kolarov, who’s not in the UEFA squad list.”
