Any side that comes off Dusseldorf a champion will proceed to the Europa Finals against side Sevilla. Sevilla edged outside Manchester United in the last four in a shocking 2-1 victory making it their sixth final in the competition.
Inter Milan have had a fair share of struggles in the Europa Competition with half their opponents either Spanish or German this season. However, Antonio Conte manages to show the impressive stature of his side.

The side benefits from securing another race in the Champions League this season finishing off first in their league. Inter Milan will prove a hard nut to crack for the side, but their back to back wins will be enough motivation.
