Reason For Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk Predictions

  • Inter have won their last five matches in all competitions
  • The Italian side have scored twice or more in each of those wins, conceding just once.

Record-breaking Inter back to their best

It’s been a long decade for Inter Milan, but they are finally getting success on the European stage. The Nerazzurri will appear in the semi-final of a European competition for the first time since the 2009/10 in the UEFA Champions League – their last taste of European silverware.

This is a record eighth appearance in a UEFA Cup/Europa League semi for Inter, who are making waves in Europe once again. Their Champions League run in 2010 was the last time Inter won five successive games in European competition. Since dropping out of the UEFA Champions League, Inter have won all four of their UEFA Europa League games this season Our predictions back them to continue that run.

Lukaku firing Inter on

In the quarter-final, Inter’s Romelu Lukaku became the first player in UEFA Cup/ Europa League history to score in nine consecutive matches a run stretching back to November 2014 with Everton. The Belgian striker has been involved in 15 goals in his last nine UEFA Europa League matches (12 goals & 3 assists).

With a potential final against United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead, Inter’s main man up top has a point to prove against the club and manager who let him go. He’s clearly getting the right service in an Inter side who are looking better and better as time goes on, so we’re backing Lukaku to find the net in this clash.

Conte’s side look strong

While Shakhtar are a dangerous side, Inter have made great strides forward in the last few weeks. The Italians have won five matches on the spin, scoring at least twice in each of them and keeping four clean sheets. Conte is getting almost all he can get from this team, having found balance at the back and in midfield with Lukaku on top form.

Given that excellent form, we’re backing Inter to claim a win here. The Nerazzurri are stronger than the Wolfsburg and Basel outfits who Shakhtar have easily dispatched in the last two rounds. We’re backing Inter to claim the win, while a 2-1 victory for the Italians is our correct score prediction.
