Here’s a look at our Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk prediction and live stream details ahead of their Europa League semi-final clash at the Dusseldorf Arena.
Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan will square off against Luis Castro’s Shakhtar Donetsk at the Dusseldorf Arena on Monday night for a spot in the Europa League final. The Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk clash is scheduled for kick-off at 9 pm CET (Tuesday, 12:30 am IST). Here’s a look at our Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk prediction, the Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk H2H record and Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk live stream details for the one-legged Europa League semi-final.
After getting knocked out of the Champions League by Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan responded with wins over the likes of Getafe and Bayer Leverkusen to make it to the Europa League semi-final. Having finished as runners-up in Serie A, Antonio Conte is only two wins away from a superb debut season with the Nerazzurri. Alexis Sanchez will miss the clash against Shakhtar as the Chilean suffered a muscular injury while training. Matias Vecino will also be unavailable for the Italian giants.
Although Luis Castro has been in charge of Shakhtar Donetsk for a mere 14 months, he has managed to guide them to their best effort in Europe since 2016. The Ukrainian champions hammered Swiss side FC Basel 4-1 in the quarter-final of the competition and are brimming with confidence. Davit Khocholava will return to the Shakhtar squad after serving his ban. Despite the current good form for Castro’s side, our Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk prediction is that Inter Milan will win the game and book their place in the final of the Europa League.
This is the second time that Inter Milan and Shakhtar will face each other in European competition. The first time these two sides met was back in the 2005-06 season during a Champions League qualifying round. Inter Milan won that game 3-1.
