THE STAGE IS SET
Five months after these sides were due to meet, they face each other on neutral ground
Inter Milan may be one of the favourites to lift the Europa League trophy this season, but tonight’s opponents Getafe aren’t going to make their life easy.
Five months after they were due to meet, the sides now face the pressure of a single play-off match, behind closed doors, with a spot in the quarter finals at stake.
Antonio Conte’s side made it this far by a comfortable 4-1 aggregate win over Ludogorets, while Getafe upset the rankings when they triumphed against Dutch powerhouse Ajax, winning 3-2.
While the Spanish side’s form took a turn for the worse in their domestic campaign, they have managed four clean sheets in this season’s Europa League and demonstrated incredible resistance against Ajax.
The Italian side have extra motivation to progress through the rounds, having missed out on silverware in Serie A by the closest of margins, but there also appears to be some jobs on the line- namely Conte’s.
In order to set up a meeting with either Rangers or Leverkusen, Inter may well look to Romelu Lukaku for goals this evening.
The Belgian forward found the back of the net 23 times in Serie A and also boasts an impressive record in the Europa League, which dates back to his Anderlecht days.
His fellow Manchester United alumni Alexis Sanchez also has a point to prove this evening.
In July, Sanchez bagged three goals and seven assists for Inter, certainly helping the Italian side clamber up the table to within touching distance of Serie A champions Juventus.
And with such form, which has drastically improved since he left Old Trafford, the 31-year-old seems hopeful that he can make his stay in Italy more permanent.
