Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann spoke to talkSPORT about the club’s performance over both legs against Inter Milan and said:

“If you look at the first game, I don’t think that Liverpool were two goals better than Inter at the San Siro.

“I think that they will be very happy to be in the hat because over the two legs you can probably say that Inter weren’t any worse than Liverpool.

“They’ve got no fluidity going forward at the moment and struggle to score goals and I think that their defense keeps them in these competitions.

“Last week at the San Siro they kept a clean sheet and had numerous chances without taking them, but at some stage they’ll play better going forward again.

“As long as the defense is functioning with [Virgil] Van Dijk looking back to his best, they look rock solid and the defense is what stands out.

“When they won the Champions League a few years back, as good as they are going forward, I think they won the Champions League because their defense was the best in the competition.”
