Complicated but not impossible challenge for Antonio Conte's team will be that on Monday the 17th of August at 20:00 at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Dusseldorf. Inter must deal with the Ukrainian champions who seem in great shape as evidenced by the 4-1 victory over Basel in the quarters.
Excellent form also for the Nerazzurri team which overcame the dangerous obstacle Bayer Leverkusen in the quarterfinals with the 2-1. Victory signed by the goals of Barella and the usual Lukaku who has always scored in all the last 9 games of the Europa League in which he played (5 with the Everton shirt in the 14/15 season when he won the top scorer of the tournament).
According to the odds given by the bookmakers', the Nerazzurri are defined as the favourites, but Conte's men must not make the mistake of underestimating the Ukrainians.
Will Lukaku and his teammates be able to deliver and qualify for the final game of the Europa League this year, where by the way, no Italian team has not played in the last 20 years?
Let's try to figure out and see what the stats say:
- Inter compared to the Ukrainians have players with more international experience in their squad. In games like these Godin, Eriksen, Young and Lukaku can make a difference.
- For Conte's Inter it will be essential not to concede a goal: Handanovic from this point of view can give a lot of guarantees. The Nerazzurri in the last 8 occasions have only conceded 3 goals - which we think is quite impressive.
- The weak point of the Ukrainians is the defence, it is true that they score a lot, it is equally valid that they leave a lot of space for their opponents and suffer a lot of goals.
- If we consider only the matches played in Europe by the Ukrainians this season, there is an interesting fact to report: they have conceded 19 goals in 11 games;
We expect an open and attacking style of play from both teams. These two "ingredients" are always a certain promise of a great show for the fans and a lot of goals. That's why our prediction for this game is aligned with the style played by both teams.
