Top predictions for Inter Milan vs. Sevilla
For Friday’s Europa League final, the model is leaning under 2.5 goals for Sevilla vs. Inter Milan. The Sevilla defense has been tough to break throughout all competitions during the 2019-20 season. They’ve recorded 26 clean sheets overall and enter Friday’s match having allowed just one goal in their last six matches between La Liga and the Europa League.
Jesus Navas, Sergio Reguilon and Diego Carlos have all been extremely steadying presences in the back for Sevilla. Meanwhile, 20-year-old Jules Kounde has gained a lot of confidence throughout the season and helps round out a Sevilla back line that has been impenetrable at times this season.
Inter Milan has also been extraordinarily stout in defense and they’ve been particularly dominant of late. Inter has given up just one goal in their last seven matches despite losing the possession battle in four of their last five games. Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrig and Alessandro Bastoni are one of the best trios of central defenders in the world and their solidity allows Inter Milan a lot more lineup flexibility as they play three in the back.
