Inter Milan will take on Spanish giants Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League 2019-20 final on Friday night.
Sevilla is eying to add one more silverware trophy when they take on Inter Milan in the title clash. The Spanish club is the most successful side in the history of this competition, winning UEFA Cup five times. Their most recent title came four years back in 2016 when they claimed the title for the third successive year. Julen Lopetegui's side registered a 2-1 victory over Man United in Sunday's semi-final, strikes from Bruno Fernandes and Luuk de Jong in the 9th and 78th minute. Los Nervionenses defeated Roma in Round of 16 and Wolverhampton Wanderers in quarterfinals. Sevilla is pretty confident for the final clash with Serie A Club to garb the 6th European title.
Meanwhile, Inter Milan has waited for long to come closer to the European title and the wait could be over on Friday after 10 years. It will be the first-ever clash between the Spanish giants and the Italian club at the European stage. Antonio Conte's men went past Shakhtar Donetsk in the semi-finals. Inter’s winning streak is now six and they have only lost once since the resumption. Conte's side lost the domestic trophy with just one point to Juventus and it was Milan’s best performance after a decade. The Black and Blues have won this competition thrice, last lifting the trophy in 1998. Their last silverware came in 2010 with the Champions League.
The numbers are favoring Los Nervionenses ahead of the finale. The Spanish Giants suffered just three defeats on German soil out of their 13 matches and have won all three of their Europa League knockout ties against Italian oppositions. This is the 4th appearance for Sevilla in Europa League Final and they emerged victorious on all three occasions.
