Inter Milan are back to their best, they came second in the Italy Serie A. It’s been a long decade for Inter Milan, but they are finally getting success on the European stage. The Nerazzurri will appear in the semi-final of a European competition for the first time since the 2009/10 in the UEFA Champions League – their last taste of European silverware.

This is a record eighth appearance in a UEFA Cup/Europa League semi for Inter, who are making waves in Europe once again. Their Champions League run in 2010 was the last time Inter won five successive games in European competition. Since dropping out of the UEFA Champions League, Inter have won all four of their UEFA Europa League games this season Our predictions back them to continue that run.

While Shakhtar are a dangerous side, Inter have made great strides forward in the last few weeks. The Italians have won five matches on the spin, scoring at least twice in each of them and keeping four clean sheets. Conte is getting almost all he can get from this team, having found balance at the back and in midfield with Lukaku on top form.

Given that excellent form, we’re backing Inter to claim a win here. The Nerazzurri are stronger than the Wolfsburg and Basel outfits who Shakhtar have easily dispatched in the last two rounds. We’re backing Inter to claim the win, while a 2-1 victory for the Italians is our correct score prediction.
