Sevilla FC and Inter Milan meet in the UEFA Europa League final in Cologne on Friday evening (21:00). Discover the probable line-up of Julen Lopetegui and Antonio Conte.
Before the Champions League final scheduled for Sunday evening in Lisbon, the Europa League final in Cologne between Sevilla FC and Inter Milan will take place.
It will be a very open final between a specialist in the field and an ambitious club in search of a European trophy ten years after the Champions League conquest.
The opposition promises to be very interesting because the tactical options of the two coaches are clear.
Julen Lopetegui’s line up
Julen Lopetegui’s 4-3-3 is already looking good, with the talented Bono in the goal and the hinge made in Ligue 1 Koundé-Diego Carlos. On the sides, the experienced Jesus Navas will be on the right, and the boiling Reguilon on the left. In midfield, no surprise either, with Fernando as a sentinel, Jordan and Banega as the relays. The Argentinian midfielder will be playing his last game for the Andalusian club.
In attack, there will be no surprises either with a trio of Ocampos-En-Nesyri-Suso. The first qualified the Sevillians against Wolverhampton, while the third scored the first goal against Manchester United in the semi-final.
The classic Inter game
On the Inter side, here again, the classic with Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system. Handanovic will obviously be present in the goal, with Godin, De Vrij and Bastoni in the three-man defence. Young and D’Ambrosio will play the role of pistons on the wings.
In midfield, the unmissable Marcelo Brozovic will be surrounded by Gagliardini and the amazing Barella, excellent against Shakhtar Donetsk. Finally, the effective Lautaro Martinez-Lukaku duo will lead the attack with a clear goal for Lukaku, who has scored in every Europa League match he has played. Let’s get on with the game!
