Martinez strike gave Inter hope, but Sanchez red card blunted their attack.

Inter were up against it, 2-0 down from the first leg and now away to Liverpool, who had not lost at home for a year. 
Liverpool hit the bar through Matip and the post through Mohamed Salah but Inter had a game plan that might be copied by other teams in the coming months – moving the ball swiftly to get around the Liverpool press and pushing down the flanks to keep the reds’ wing-backs at bay. 
A Calhanoglu strike bounced uncomfortably in front of Alisson but the Brazilian keeper parried it away well. 
An incident of note was the yellow card given to Alexis Sanchez for a nasty foul on Thiago, the Chilean running his studs down the back of the Spaniard’s calf. Sanchez was lucky to escape a red for the challenge. 
On 60 minutes, Lautaro was fed with a decent chance but his poor shot deflected wide off the heel of Andy Robertson. But two minutes later, a stunning goal by Martinez. 
Receiving the ball near the left hand corner of the box, he let the ball run across him and with van Dijk watching, he struck across the ball to give it pace and height, the ball sailing over Alisson and under his bar inside the far post. 
The Inter fans were going wild, but within a minute, Alexis had managed to cool their celebrations. 
Another wild challenge saw him just get the ball, but he followed through on Fabinho. The ref had no choice but to show a second yellow and then a red. 
Inter’s chances were over but even with 10 men, they were comfortable, just not able to exert any late pressure on the reds. 
So, Inter come away with a creditable win but it really could have been so much more.
