The Europa knockout stages were heated up, leading to the hotly contested quarter-finals. This will see side Inter Milan try to get their first silverware under Antonio Conte. The match schedules for Monday with kickoff at 10 pm.
Antonio Conte is still in doubt whether he would retainer his managerial role at the club at the end of the summer. However, pulling off a win for the Europa League will clear all doubts over the future of the star.
The side easily cruised past Getafe in the knockout stages to secure a spot in the quarter-finals. Conte will be hoping for investment in the squad by the board. He hopes to solidify their threat for the Serie A Champion.
The side was far from their best in the knockout stages against Getafe, but goals from Romelo Lukaku and Christian Eriksen were enough to secure the win. The side progressed to their first quarter-finals entry in the Europa since their 2010-11 Champions League campaign.
Another side that has been impressive in the Bundesliga is Bayern Munich. The side managed to finish fifth in the league, meaning they booked another slot in the Europa competition next season.
A sour taste of defeat for the side came in the DFB-Pokal final to side Bayern Munich. The side put the defeat behind them managing to edge out Rangers 1-0 on a 4-1 aggregate win. It will be all guns blazing this Monday.
