Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk Betting Preview

The semi-final of the Europa League kicks off shortly with Italian sides Inter Milan considered to be the big favourites to get the victory over tough Eastern European side Shakhtar Donetsk. With the other semi-final between Sevilla and Manchester United already complete, the Spanish side will be waiting in the final for the victor in this contest.




Many of the European fixtures being played out right now have brought some surprise results with a number of big favourites - most notably Manchester City losing out to Lyon for a spot in the semi-finals. 

Antonio Conte believes that Shakhtar are going to be the toughest side that Inter have faced in the Champions League so far this season and they will need their strike force to be at their best in order to get the result. The Ukrainian side have shown that they can be very difficult to break down and if they can take the match into 0-0 at half-time then it could very well be game on for them. 

The bookmakers clearly do favour an Inter Milan victory with prices hovering around a 4/7 margin prior to kick-off with most major European books. Many not only expect Inter to get the victory but to secure it within the first 90 minutes of play. United and Sevilla were on the verge of extra time or penalties when the Spanish side finally broke through to make it 2-1. 

Shakhtar are not totally out of the question to secure the victory and you’ll find them priced around a 9/2 margin to get the victory in the opening 90 minutes while the draw can be backed around a 16/5 price. 

In regards to outright qualification, you’ll be able to find Inter Milan available at a price as high as ⅓ to progress to the final by any method. Shakhtar are a very enticing 16/5 price to progress by any method and, if they are to make it to the final, it could very well be on isolating Inter and keeping them out of the net the entire time, while nicking the contest on penalties.
