FC Basel’s road to the Europa League final will also mean a victory over Inter. The Milanese await, in fact, in the semi-final the Rhenish, who face Shakhtar Donetsk this Tuesday.
In Dusseldorf, the formation of Antonio Conte won 2-1 in front of Bayer Leverkusen. The Milanese forced the decision in the space of six minutes on the successes of Nicolo Barella (15th) and Romelu Lukaku (21st). Despite the reduction of the score of the prodigy Kai Havertz in the 25th, they managed very quietly their advantage to sign a victory practically without history.
Involved in the opener before signing the 2-0 powerful, Lukaku was the man of the match. With his physique, the Belgian is the absolute weapon of an eleven who does not always seduce but who holds the road perfectly. Antonio Conte intends to use this “Final 8” to restore a European title to Inter ten years after the triumph of the team then led by Jose Mourinho in Madrid against Bayern.
United at the end of the suspense
In the other meeting of the evening in Cologne, Manchester United won 1-0 against FC Copenhagen. The Mancuniens had to wait for extra time and a penalty awarded for a foul on Anthony Martial in the 95th and transformed by Bruno Fernandes to win the bet.
This success is deserved insofar as the goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson, a Swede who had played for the past three seasons at Guingamp, has undoubtedly delivered the match of his life. He multiplied the parries to keep his own in the match until the 120th.
Victorious in the Europa League three years ago, Manchester United will face the winner of the match between Wolverhampton and Sevilla FC in the semi-final.
