Inter Milan Preview – Can Inter Milan progress to final?

An impressive 2-1 win over German Bundesliga club, Bayer Leverkusen, in the quarter-finals of the Europa League last Sunday saw Inter Milan progress to this semi-final clash with Ukrainian side, Shakhtar Donetsk, with Antonio Conte’s side now just 90 minutes away from playing in the final of this competition.

Since losing almost inexplicably 2-1 at home to Bologna in Serie A, Inter Milan have embarked upon a solid and impressive 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions which includes seven wins and perhaps more crucially, recent victories over Getafe and Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League.

Earlier, Inter Milan had finished in 3rd place in Group F in the Champions League which earned them a place in the knockout rounds of the Europa League where they despatched Ludogorets along with the aforementioned Getafe and Leverkusen, while the bigger picture shows that Inter have won seven of their last nine Europa League ties.

Our betting suggestion:

Shakhtar Donetsk Preview – Can Shakhtar Donetsk keep their run going?

A team that can often be found in the group stages of the Champions League due to their dominance on the domestic scene, Shakhtar Donetsk, are themselves just 90 minutes away from appearing in this season’s Europa League final, thanks to their recent 4-1 crushing of Swiss outfit, Basel, in the quarter-finals.

Indeed, Shakhtar also finished in 3rd spot in their Champions League Group C but just a point behind runners-up, Atalanta, but this enabled them to keep their European dream alive in the Europa League knockout stages where they saw off Benfica 5-4 on aggregate and then registered a convincing 5-1 aggregate win against Wolfsburg.

The Ukrainian club have won four of their last five ties in this competition but this one-off tie against Inter Milan could be decided by the team that best copes with this neutral venue; Donetsk have lost just one of their previous eight ties on the road, while Inter possess a pretty poor record on their travels – winning just two of their last 10 matches.
