DÜSSELDORF – Inter Milan reached the 2019-2020 Europa League final after beating Shakhtar Donetsk 5-0 in the semi-finals. Inter’s game against Shakhtar will take place on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 in the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf.
Inter right-back Danilo D’Ambrosio said the Nerazzurri – Inter’s nickname – could make it to the final because of coach Antonio Conte. According to him, Conte is the type of coach who teaches football correctly and precisely.
Conte brought changes for Inter this season. The former Juventus coach was able to change Inter, who has been inconsistent in recent years, for the better.
Inter are the team with the best defense in the Italian league this season. Inter’s strong defense isn’t strange considering Conte is known as a tactician who focuses on strength at the back.

However, that doesn’t mean that Conte doesn’t like to be aggressive. This was proven in the game against Shakhtar. Inter did not control the ball too much throughout the game, but were able to make effective use of every opportunity in front of the opposing goal.
Inter scored five class goals through Lautaro Martinez (19 ‘da 74’), Ambrosio (64 ‘) and Romelu Lukaku (78’ and 83 ‘). Meanwhile, Shakhtar, who dominated possession, failed to score a single goal against Samir Handanovic.
