Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Against all odds, Inter suffered a 2-0 loss to Hapoel Be’er Sheva in their Europa League opener, but just three days later they outplayed Serie A giants Juventus at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The Nerazzurri are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Thursday’s football match against Sparta Prague and we predict that the Italians are going to find the net in their second group game. Sparta were beaten by Southampton at St. Marry’s Stadium in the opening match of their Europa League campaign and seeing that they are on a four-game winless run in all competitions at the moment, home win should not be considered this time out. The two teams face each other for the first time ever in European competitions and, taking everything into account, the Serie A team are likely to record their first win in the 2016/2017 Europa League campaign. A man to watch in the away team will be Icardi, who looks unstoppable at the moment.
Highlighted Player (Ever Banega):
Ever Banega is a classy midfielder well known for his precision passes and clinical ball-distribution skills. Having come through the youth ranks at Boca Juniors, Banega was earmarked for bigger responsibilities from a younger age.
When Fernando Gago moved to Real Madrid in 2007, he became a first-team regular at Boca. In 2008, he made a big money move to Valencia for a fee of around €20 million. His stint at Valencia was marked with frustrating injuries amidst difficulties in settling in the starting XI. It was only when he moved to Sevilla in 2014 that his array of skills was in full display.
Playing under Unai Emery who managed him at Valencia, Banega soon became the lynchpin for Sevilla. He was the cornerstone of their Europa League triumphs for the past two years. Banega’s pedigree in national colors is also unmatched having won an Olympic medal in 2008 and appearing in three Copa America tournaments.
Highlighted Team (Inter Milan):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
