Our match prediction:
Hapoel Be’er Sheva did remarkably well to eliminate Olympiakos in the Champions League qualifiers, but Celtic proved to be a big catch for the Israeli outfit in the play-offs. However, Hapoel made it to the Europa League group stages and they take on Inter at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in their opener. The Nerazzurri head into the game following a 2-1 win over Pescara in the Serie A and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they face Hapoel in the opening match of their Europa League campaign. Frank de Boer recorded his first win with the Nerazzurri at the weekend and seeing that the Italians are high on confidence ahead of the visit of the Israeli team, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Thursday’s football match. A man to watch in the home team will be Icardi, who scored the winner against Pescara.
Highligted Player (Murillo):
Jeison Murillo is a 24-year-old Colombian defender who plays for Inter Milan in Serie A. The centre back started in the youth teams of Deportivo Cali but made his senior professional bow with Udinese and Granada, as part of the partnership agreement between the clubs. He moved on a permanent basis to Granada in 2011 but spent most of his time on loans at fellow Spanish league clubs Cadiz and Las Palmas. His talent was there for everyone to see and soon he would end up moving to Inter Milan in 2015. Murillo made his international debut for Colombia in 2014. He was also a member of the 2015 Copa America squad and scored his solitary goal in national colors against Brazil. He would go on to win the “Best Young Player” of the tournament. Murillo is a hard-tackling no-nonsense centre back and is regarded as a ball-playing defender, which is almost a rarity in world football.
Highlighted Team (Inter Milan):
