Inter Milan Score Brilliant Goal Vs Liverpool

Lautaro Martinez scored a brilliant goal for Inter Milan against Liverpool, but within minutes his team were once again facing a huge task.

Inter lost the first leg of their last Champions League 16 game against Liverpool 2-0, and knew they needed to complete an all but impossible task to go through to the quarters.

Only one team before them had lost the first leg at home by two goals and managed to overturn it, Manchester United's famous win over PSG in 2019.

The Italians managed to get to half time at 0-0, still in with a shout of completing the comeback, and then, just past the hour mark, the tie took a turn.

Martinez received the ball on the edge of the area, from Alexis Sanchez pass, and he curled a shot past Alisson's dive and brilliantly into the corner of the goal.

However, if fans were starting to get excited about a historic comeback then they were soon to be brought crashing back down to reality.

Sanchez had been, in many people's eyes, lucky not to be sent off for a studs up challenge on Thiago Alcantara in the first half, only picking up a yellow card.

However the former Manchester United forward made sure that he still got his early shower, just two minutes after the goal brought Inter back into the game.

The 33-year-old recklessly lunged into Fabinho, after first winning the ball in an uncontrolled way, sliding into the midfielder's boot.

It looked like the game at Anfield could have been in for an interesting finish, but instead Sanchez's red card left the Italian champions with little chance.

Instead Jurgen Klopp's side could yet win an incredible, never done before, quadruple!
