FT and Liverpool have passed!

Lautaro Martinez scored a crier but it wasn’t for Inter.

A commendable 1-0 victory at Anfield for Simone Inzaghi’s side, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Liverpool from progressing to the quarter-finals.

This 2-0 win at the San Siro does the trick for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Oh, and Bayern won 7-1 against Red Bull Salzburg to win 8-2 on aggregate, so they also qualify.
