Inter Milan Preview – Can Conte lead an Inter team to a first European semi-final since 2010?

Antonio Conte knows his team will be playing Champions League football next season but he will be demanding his team go all out to win this year’s Europa League. Conte has been so accustomed to success both as a player and coach but there is a feeling his first season as Inter boss has been an underachievement. That’s despite finishing second in Serie A and a point behind the leaders. The title challenge was something of a damp squib from some months out.

Defeat in the semi-final of the Coppa Italia was another disappointment and the fact they are only competing in the Europa League because they got knocked out the Champions League means they will want to go all the way and silence some of the doubters.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Sunday 9 August)


Inter have been much more consistent of late with six wins and three draws in their last nine games. The most recent of those was the 2-0 win over Getafe in the previous round of this competition in a game which they rode their luck somewhat. A missed penalty from the Spaniards proving crucial when the score was 1-0.

Conte will hope to build on that and will be aware that tomorrow’s opponents will prove a much tougher test which his players will have to respond to.

Bayer Leverkusen Preview – Are Leverkusen set to make up for their domestic disappointments?

Despite a very strong second half to the season Bayer Leverkusen still came up short both in the Bundesliga and the German Cup. A stumble towards the end of their league campaign proved crucial as they finished fifth and therefore missed out on qualifying for the Champions League. A heavy defeat to Bayern Munich in the DFB Pokal compunded their frustration and means all their attention is on Europe and attempting to compete in next season’s Champions League by virtue of winning this.

Like Inter, they fell into the Europa League having finished third in this season’s Champions League and have taken full advantage thus far.

Two-legged ties against Porto and Rangers could have been challenging but Leverkusen have been imperious – winning all four matches. The two away performances – where they won 3-1 on both occasions – have been particularly impressive and is the sort of level they will require if they are to progress past the Serie A giants.

It’s hard to get away from the attention and coverage of their star player Kai Havertz future. It’s expected he will leave this summer but his inclusion in the second leg against Rangers implies he will be used to boost Leverkusen’s chances of winning this.

Inter Milan vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Advice

With it being a one-legged came played at a neutral venue (Dusseldorf) there are a lot of unknowns as to how it will impact a game at this stage of the competition. Inter have some experience of it given the circumstances of their win over Getafe but the stakes are higher now we’ve reached the last eight.

Inter have played German opposition this season when facing Borussia Dortmund in the group stages of the Champions League. They comfortably won at home before losing away. Leverkusen, on the other hand, lost both games against Juventus in their Champions League group, without scoring a goal.

Key Facts – Inter Milan vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tip

  • Leverkusen easily dispatched Rangers in the round of 16, winning 4-1 on aggregate
  • The clubs last met in the 2006/07 Champions League when they split the games with a win each


The winners of this tie will face either Shakhtar Donetsk or Basel in the semi-final and will be big favourites to reach the showpiece. Inter have hit good form at just the right time for this and may have the added experience to edge past Leverkusen.
