Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - Semi-finals
Kick-off:
Venue: Merkur Spiel-Arena (Düsseldorf)
Getting their domestic campaign off to a flyer, Inter Milan quickly rose to the top of the standings, leaving defending champions Juventus grasping for straws. However, the Nerazzurri soon witnessed a dip-in-form, causing them to plummet down.

Showing great character, Inter rose from their ruins towards the end of the campaign, strutting a couple of wins to secure a second-place finish. For a club in its transition phase, this feat cannot be overlooked as it is one immense achievement. 

With their league campaign ending on strong note, Inter Milan will set their sights on lifting the Europa League trophy this term. For this, they will need all hands-on deck as they look to send Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk crashing from the competition, to book a place in the final.

Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk Team News

Enjoying an excellent debut season at San Siro, head coach Antonio Conte may be deserving of a pat on the back for the amazing effort he has put into this Inter Milan side. Putting together a group of driven players, the Nerazzurri are slowly becoming a huge force to reckon with once again.
While it has not been so rosy for Inter in Europe this term, they have weathered the storm, managing to breeze into the semifinals of the EL.

Thrown in the hat with the likes of Barcelona and Dortmund in Group F of the Champions League, the Nerazzurri were always going to struggle to make it through.

As expected, Conte’s charges finished third and were relegated to Europe’s second tier competition, where they have dazzled from day one. Last time out, they were pitted against a tricky Bayer Leverkusen side to battle for glory. 

Made to dig really deep for victory, Inter Milan successfully threw their German opposition under the bus via a narrow 2-1 win. Barella and Lukaku were quick off the blocks with two early goals, leaving Leverkusen with an unsurmountable mountain to climb.

Meanwhile, Shakhtar Donetsk made light work of Basel in the quarterfinals, taking this side to the cleaners. Grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck right from kickoff, the Miners made life very difficult for the opposition. 

Two goals either side of both halves were enough to send Donetsk to the semifinals of the competition, leaving Basel’s van Wolfswinkel last-minute effort as nothing but a consolation. Ultimately, they advanced to the next phase via an emphatic 4-1 win in Gelsenkirchen.

Luis Castro’s men have been utterly ruthless so far, registering seven goals in their last two games, and conceding just one. Led by goal-loving Junior Moraes, the Miners are in imperious goalscoring fun and are poking balls into the net for absolute fun.

Inter are also on a decent scoring streak with four goals from their previous two matches. Assisted by the ever-prolific Romelu Lukaku, the Nerazzurri have never looked short of goals in all competitions this season.

These are two sides in great form and itching to make it all the way to the finals. Surely, Inter are favorites for the win on paper – sporting more experienced players within their ranks and playing in a more competitive league, the Italian Serie A.

However, it is worth noting that we have witnessed so many upsets over the last few weeks. Also, Shakhtar are a side very capable of upstaging Inter Milan here, as they are on a good run of form. As such, we will make the bold step of tipping Luis Castro’s men for an outright win.
