Liverpool midfielder Fabinho: We know Inter Milan will be a really tough game

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho says they cannot underestimate Champions League opponents Inter Milan.

The Reds are at Inter Milan on Wednesday for the first leg of their round of 16 tie having qualified for the knockout stages with a 100% record in the group.

Inter are currently one point off neighbours AC Milan – who Liverpool beat home and away in the group stages – in the Serie A table with a game in hand.

“This will be a really tough game,” he said. “Inter right now is the best Italian team, that’s why they are up near the top in the league.

“They play good, they are a strong team. They play together maybe four or five seasons, some players.

“We have two to three days to prepare for this game and hopefully go to Milan and have a good result in a nice stadium.”

Meanwhile, Fabinho now has five goals in his last seven games, but can’t quite put his finger on his new-found prowess in the penalty area.

“I don’t know.,” he said to LFC TV. “When you are confident and score goals you think the ball will always come to you, so I’m always confident I will have a chance to score a goal.

“I try to move to the ball and I was lucky after Sadio’s deflection that the ball came to me and I was alive to score the goal.

“It was a good time to score, just before half-time. In the second half we had a little bit more space – 1-0 is enough.”
