Liverpool survive Inter scare to make the Champions League quarters
Mar 09, 2022
Liverpool have sneaked into the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
This, despite the Reds losing 1-0 to Inter Milan in the second leg of their last-16 at Anfield this morning.
Lautaro Martinez netted the only goal of the game for Inter.
Despite the defeat, Liverpool go through to the quarters on a 2-1 aggregate score line, although their 28-game unbeaten home run has come to an end.
Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski scored a hattrick in the first 23-minutes as Bayern Munich thrashed RB Salzburg 7-1 in the second leg of their last-16 tie.
Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller (2) and Leroy Sane also found the back of the net for Bayern.
The German giants progress to the quarterfinals 8-2 on aggregate.
The Malaysian contingent will go into isolation prior to their departure for the Hanoi SEA Games.
The Olympic Council of Malaysia president Tan Sri Mohamad Norza Zakaria says our athletes will be placed in a ‘safe bubble’ for two weeks before leaving, to avoid any Covid-19 cluster.
The additional safety protocol is due to the large size of the contingent, and the sharp increase in Omicron cases here recently.
Novak Djokovic has been added into the main draw for this week’s Indian Wells tennis Open.
Organisers, however, say they are uncertain if the unvaccinated former world number one will be able to participate…because current regulations require overseas visitors to be immunised against Covid to enter the US.
