Top 10 Anglo-Italian clashes
Inter 0-1 Liverpool, 2008
While Inter dominated Serie A in the wake of the infamous Calciopoli scandal of 2006, they were never able to exert their influence on the European stage under the tutelage of then-coach Roberto Mancini. Rafa Benitez's Liverpool, on the other hand, had the opposite problem. When the two sides met in the Champions League round of 16, the Italians were let down by ill discipline, and the Reds won 2-0 after Marco Materazzi's red card. Any chances of an Inter revival were killed off when Nicolas Burdisso received his marching orders at San Siro. Torres scored soon after to make sure of the tie. Mancini admitted he wanted to leave his job after the match, and was sacked two months later to be replaced by Jose Mourinho.
