Dnipro and Inter Milan were both title contenders in the last football season, with the former eventually finishing as runners up and the latter as fifth placers. They also have agreeable records in the past editions of the UEFA tilts.


Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk

Dnipro finished in the Round of 32 last season in the Europa League after they were beaten by Tottenham Hotspur on aggregate scores. Before this, however, they ranked second to Fiorentina in their cluster at the Group stage, winning four matches (out of six) in the process. As for their most recent records, they have been unbeaten in six consecutive fixtures, accentuated by a 4-0 rout at Karpaty in the Ukrainian top-tier league. Warriors of Light have a good shot at making a third straight appearance in the Knockout phase.


Inter Milan

Three-time Europa League winners Internazionale were not able to participate in any of the UEFA tournaments last term as they only finished eighth in Serie A for the 2012-13 season. It was the first time they did not qualify for the competitions since 1993 but their resilience has brought them far in their campaign and successfully allowed them to get back on track and hope for the title once more. They finished fifth in the Italian top-flight football last season, thereby giving them berth to the UEL play-offs. Their latest performances in various competitions have also rendered them undefeated in four consecutive matches (two wins, two draws).


Europa League betting tip: Inter Milan will bag all the marbles from Dnipro.
