Inter Milan striker Edin Dzeko has been looking ahead to their clash against Liverpool.
The Reds take on the reigning Serie A title winners in the last 16 of the Champions League, which restarts next month. Liverpool finished top of their group ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid while Inter finished second behind Real Madrid.
The first leg of the tie takes place at the San Siro, which will be the second time that Jurgen Klopp’s side will have visited the stadium this season, having faced AC Milan in the group stage. Liverpool have come up against Dzeko in the past, having faced him during his days at both Manchester City and Roma.
Speaking about the prospect of facing the Reds once again, the Bosnia and Herzegovina captain outlined why Inter’s previous efforts in the competition this season will stand them in good stead. And he also issued a warning to both Liverpool and his own team for how the tie could pan out.
“We played two even games against Real Madrid,” Dzeko told Il Corriere della Sera, via Football Italia .“We should have won the first one, but we were still not at this level.
“Liverpool are strong, but you can beat them or concede five goals.”
