Inter Milan cruised to a 2-0 first-leg lead in his tie out in Bulgaria. After dropping down from the Champions League, Inter look set to make progress from the round of 32. They have never lost a tie at this stage of the competition.

Their 2-0 win Bulgaria leaves them with an unbeaten W3 L3 record against Bulgarian opposition. The goals in the first leg came from Christian Eriksen and Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku’s strike was a stoppage-time penalty.

This is Inter’s fourth appearance in the Round of 32 in the Europa League. From their three previous matches at home in this stage of the competition, Inter have picked up a clean sheet in each of them. If you include qualification matches, Inter are W10 D4 L4 overall in the Europa League fixture.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1851 GMT, Tuesday 25th February)

Surprisingly Inter have only 2 of their last 7 European home games (D3 L2). 17 times before Inter have won the first leg of a UEFA tie away from home and they have won 16 of those ties.

So everything points to the Nerazzurri being comfortable for this second leg, especially with the comfortable lead that they have.


Can Bulgarians make a dent in Inter’s defence?

The meeting between these two in Razgrad a week ago was the first-ever meeting between Inter and Ludogorets. The overall record that the Bulgarians have against Italian opposition is W1 D1 L3.

Their only success against an Italian team happened with a 1-0 win at Lazio in the 2013/14 Europa League. They won that tie 4-3 on aggregate but lost their one other tie against Italian opposition, which was against AC Milan in 2017/18.

Ludogorets are the Bulgarian champions and they lost in the first qualifying round of this season’s Champions League. But they played their way through the qualifier and opened their group stage campaign with wins over CSKA Moscow and Ferencvaros.
