Inter vs Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions


Romelu Lukaku Inter 2019-20

Inter and Shakhtar Donetsk clash at Merkur Spielarena in Dusseldorf in the second Europa League semi-final on Monday night with a place against Sevilla in the final at stake.

Indeed, Shakhtar have scored 14 times in just five matches – the highest goals-per-game average in the tournament at 2.8 – whilst Inter have netted eight in four.

Inter finished second in Serie A and bet365 make them 4/7 (1.57) favourites to reach the final of this competition for the fifth time and the first time since it was rebranded as the Europa League.

Shakhtar were surprise winners of the 2008-09 edition, which was the last UEFA Cup prior to the renaming, and are 9/2 (5.50) to reach the final for the second time in their history.

A draw would see the tie go into extra time and potentially penalties, and that is available at 16/5 (4.20).

Alexis Sanchez is out after suffering a muscle injury in training, joining Matias Vecino on the sidelines.

Defender Davit Khocholava is available for selection after returning from suspension, but Shakhtar manager Luis Castro may opt for the same XI that beat Basel 4-1 last week.

Winning the Europa League would cap off successful seasons for both sides, with Inter having finished just a point behind Juventus in Serie A whilst Shakhtar won a fourth consecutive Ukrainian Premier League.

It is the Italians that will be desperate for glory, though, considering they have not even reached a final in any competition since winning the Coppa Italia in 2011.

They will be in a confident mood after recording their best league finish in nine years and also having scored twice in each of their Europa League games this term.

However, Shakhtar will be out to spoil the party and will back themselves to make a strong fist of the game after beating Basel 4-1 and Wolfsburg 3-0 in the last two weeks.

There should be plenty of goals in Dusseldorf when Inter and Shakhtar meet and bet365’s price of 10/11 (1.91) on a combination of over 2.5 goals and both teams to score offers excellent value to punters for this Europa League clash.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
