Inter drop into the Europa League and welcome Austrian side Rapid Vienna, who they beat 1-0 in the first leg to the San Siro.  

Predictions

Inter finished third in their Champion’s League group behind Barcelona and Tottenham and ahead of PSV. Inter had qualification for the knock out rounds in their hands going into the penultimate game but lost 1-0 to Spurs thanks to a Christian Erikson goal before failing to beat PSV at home in their final group game.

Rapid Vienna came second in their Europa League group ahead of Rangers and Spartak Moscow. The Austrians finished with 10 points, the same amount as Spanish outfit Villarreal, and will be confident enough of being able to bring the game to the Nerazzurri.    

Inter have recovered from a period of poor results in recent weeks to clock up two wins in a row in Serie A over Parma and Sampdoria. Although there have been problems off the field with striker Mauro Icardi being stripped of the captaincy and refusing to travel to Vienna for the first leg after contract talks broke down.                                                    

Rapid Vienna are struggling in the Austrian Bundesliga – loitering around down in eighth position a massive 28 points behind leaders Red Bull Salzburg. This could be their last European fixture for a while unless there is a huge turn around in their league fortunes. Inter should win, and 2-0 is distinctly possible.

Betting Tips

Inter to win 2-0

The Italian side should have too much quality for Rapid – even without the services of top marksman Mauro Icardi. 

Total goals under 2.5

Inter don’t score too many goals and struggled to find the net during their Champions League campaign – scoring just six times. The Nerazzurri have only scored more than two goals once in their last 16 games – which was a 6-2 win over Serie B side Benevento in the Coppa Italia and that might be why the bookies are offering relatively low odds for goals.

Statistics

Head to Head

The first meeting between the sides was in the first leg, which Inter won 1-0.

Stats

Rapid Vienna have been Europa League stalwarts recently featuring in eight of last 10 competitions – although this is only the second time, that they have reached the knock out rounds after previously being beaten by Valencia in 2016.

Inter scored just six goals in their six Champion’s League group matches – and have also been toothless in Serie A.

Rapid Vienna are looking to somehow match their run to the 1996 Cup Winners Cup final in which they lost 1-0 to PSG.

Inter won the UEFA Cup three times in the 90s but have yet to mount a serious challenge on the Europa League – only getting to the round of 16 twice before being knocked out by Spurs and Wolfsburg respectively.
