We’re bringing you our expert Europa League predictions for the last time in this season as 5 time winners Sevilla take on a rejuvenated Inter Milan side in West Germany this Friday night. We’ve analysed the facts and figures in coming up with our best betting tips for this showpiece event.
Here at BettingTips.net we’re experts, which is why our Europa League betting tips have been consistent this season. Even with fanless stadiums, the business end of the tournament has been thoroughly entertaining and the final showdown looks to be no exception.
They might have rode their luck a little bit to get to this final, but Sevilla are still the undisputed Kings of the Europa League, having won it a record 5 times. Although only one player, Ever Banega, is still there from their last triumph in 2016, the rest of the squad will be all too aware of the expectations. In terms of form, Julen Lopetegui’s men are on the best run in the club’s history, having notched up 20 games undefeated. They were far from their best against Manchester United but still managed to get the job done.
The bookies, alongside most other Europa League prediction experts, have tipped Inter Milan as favourites to lift the cup. Given that Antonio Conte’s side have won all 5 of their games since entering the competition from the Champions League, it’s easy to see why. Despite finishing 2nd in the Serie A, just a single point behind Juventus, Inter hadn’t looked to be at their sharpest following the restart. That was until their 5-0 semi final thrashing of Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday, so perhaps the Nerazzurri are peaking at just the right time.
This will be the first competitive meeting between these two sides in recent history. On an individual level, Inter striker Romelu Lukaku played twice against Sevilla in a 2 legged Champions league tie he’ll best want to forget. Despite scoring in the second leg, the Manchester United side Lukaku was then playing for crashed out of the competition thanks to a 2-1 loss at home. In terms of playing style, both sides have been extremely solid defensively under their respective managers. However, Inter have recently proven to hold more of an attacking threat.
Below we’ve provided 3 statistical highlight’s that our experts have considered when creating our final round Europa League predictions for this campaign.
Based on the above information, our final Europa League prediction for this season is for Inter Milan to lift the trophy.
We’re going along with the bookies and most other Europa League betting tips here, by predicting an Inter Milan win on Friday night. Despite Sevilla’s past dominance of this trophy and their club record breaking run of form, Antonio Conte’s side look too strong at the minute. Inter’s perceived edge is thanks in no small part to their striking duo of Lukaku and Lautaro, who have a combined 53 goals between them in all competitions this campaign.
The straightforward bet on an Inter Milan victory isn’t too bad with odds of 2.2 being offered. However, adding a Sevilla goal to that makes your punt a lot more valuable. Therefore our betting tip for this game is an Inter win + both teams to score. The best odds you’ll find for this bet come from Bet365, who are offing 4.5.
