The UEFA Europa League ends the 2020 campaign with a spectacle in which we have two rock-solid teams clashing. Sevilla and Inter are about to decide which one takes the trophy of the second-most important Europan competition.
Sevilla vs. Inter Milan Preview
The Spanish club is after its sixth title in this competition, and since they are the most successful side ever in EL, there is a massive motive among them for beating Inter. Right now, Julen Lopetegui’s team has 20 matches in which they haven’t lost, winning 11 during that stretch.

Sevilla’s defense allowed just one goal in the previous six matches, and that was against Manchester United, keeping their net intact in all other games. You won’t see many scores when they play, because Lopetegui prefers to hold the ball in his possession and sets up slow and cautious tactics.
Inter Milan +115
Nerazzurri, too, come into this event full of confidence. The three-time European champs won six straight matches, scoring at least twice in all of them. Likeways Sevilla, Inter also allowed just one goal during that streak, demonstrating fantastic poise in their performance, routinely handling all the rivals.
41 goals for Anderlecht
17 goals for West Brom
87 goals for Everton
42 goals for Manchester United
33 goals for Inter Milan
52 goals for Belgium
Romelu Lukaku, at just 27, has 272 career goals.

Antonio Conte had a plan before the season began to dethrone Juventus from the Serie a top, but after failing to do so, this is his chance for redemption. Inter has unreal Romelu Lukaku upfront, who scored at least a goal in nine straight EL contests. His current form is excellent, smashing the opponents’ defenses ever since the football restarted following COVID-19 pause.
Sevilla vs. Inter Milan Head to Head
There aren’t any official games between the Rojoblancos and Nerazzurri. They did have a friendly meeting in 2008 in Amsterdam, that ended 0-0.
Sevilla vs. Inter Milan Pick
You can probably sense that there won’t be too many goals, especially after all the numbers written above. Lopetegui and Conte know how to protect their goals and how to slow down the match.
Inter has a slight edge from this point of view, only because they have Lukaku in the attack, while on the other side, Sevilla’s lineup lacks a player of his current form and caliber. Therefore, betting on Inter might be the best solution here with the odds, at +115 on the Italian powerhouse.
Pick: Inter to win +115
