Former Liverpool midfielder Vladimir Smicer says their Champions League clash with Inter Milan cannot be underestimated.
Smicer warns Inter are in the right type of form ahead of facing Liverpool.
He told FCInterNews: “For both teams the first draw was better, for sure.
“But it’s the Champions League, it’s about the best teams in the world. So if you want to win the competition, you eventually have to come up against fearsome opposition.
“Maybe Liverpool are better off facing Inter because they have nothing to lose,” he went on. “And by progressing they can gain even more confidence.
“If you play against the less strong teams, you feel a lot more pressure to win. Also, the fans will be able to enjoy a wonderful matchup.
“The Reds are playing very well,” he continued, “both in the Premier League and in the Champions League.”
Smicer also said, “There is a big difference compared to last season, where the team had droped quite a few points thanks to injuries, especially in the defensive areas.
“Today they are firing on all cylinders, including the attack where they are scoring many goals.”
“I think Liverpool are having a great season, but the same goes for Inter,” Smicer continued. “The Nerazzurri are a strong team, it will be an interesting match.
“For me, Klopp’s team remain the favourites,” he opined, “they have one of the best squads in the entire history of the club.”
