With the quarter-final stage matches of the Europa League take place in Germany without an audience, and the winner of the confrontation is determined on the basis of one meeting. As you can see, the teams have no room for error. Including from notebooks favorites.
so it was surprising to observe how the played against modest “Copenhagen” stars “Manchester United”. Simple fact: the total value of the part of the Danish team almost half of the money that Manchester United have posted this winter for the Portuguese Bruno Fernandes. However, on Tuesday evening, the difference between the teams was minimal.
the British, though, and created a lot of chances in attack, but the defense made such mistakes, whether in place of more Danes are a great team, the team of OLE Gunnar sulsher would be very difficult. The fate of this confrontation eventually decided in extra time. Manchester United won thanks to a goal by Bruno Fernandes with a penalty – 1:0.
– the Opponent was very good. Their goalkeeper played a great game. But we had our moments, we twice hit the post, two goals Manchester United will not count. Okay, you guys didn’t give up and won. This season we were in the semifinals for the third time. Don’t want to miss this chance, – said the coach of Manchester United’s OLE Gunnar solskjaer.
as for inter, this season game, “black and blue” leaves ambiguous impression. On the one hand, the players of Antonio Conte took second place in the Italian League, but on the other are unable to use a lot of opportunities to win gold. Juventus allowed himself to misfires than the fact they are mostly not used.
However, in the Europa League, at least at the moment, inter has to be extremely tight. Although in the match with Bayer, the Italians at some point relaxed. Leading 2:0 in the first half with goals from Nikola Burelli and Romelu Lukaku, the nominal owners before the break we conceded a goal from Kai Caverta. In the second half, the Germans pressed, but to achieve results are unable. Inter won 2:1 and for the first time in ten years, will take part in the semi-finals of the European Cup.
– well done Guys, they coped with the task, but we need to learn to kill the opponent in such situations. When you lead 2:0, we must strive to score the third, and not to defend the advantage, – said the head coach of the Italian team Antonio Conte.
we will Add that in the semi-final “inter” will play with the winner of pair “the miner” – “Basel”, and “MU” – or “wolves” or Sevilla. The names of the remaining two members of the 1/2 final of the Europa League became known after the signing rooms “RG” in print.

You��assess the favorite in the duel is very difficult. Although many experts prefer the Parisians, “Atalanta” at the moment, is not worse than his opponent. It is considered one of the brightest teams in the world. Suffice it to say that the BERGAMASCHI have scored in the last draw of the Italian championship 98 goals. A better indicator, if we take a European top League, only Manchester city (102 goals).
Atalanta managed to prove itself not only in the domestic arena, but also in the Champions League. It became the first team in the history of the tournament, which reached the playoffs, losing in the opening three matches of the group stage. Unlike the Italians, PSG are confident enough to qualify in the 1/8 finals, where they beat Borussia Dortmund (1:2 away and 2:0 at home).
What is important – in today’s match will not be able to participate team leaders. At PSG due to injury will not play Kilian Mbappe, and the “Atalanta” Josip Ilicic. According to media reports, Ricica was depressed, and he flew home to Slovenia. How much of it will not be in the location of the club – no one can tell.
– Iličić is a fundamental player for our team. It was his name up until March. Josip thugs all in “series A”, and in Europe. It’s like Juventus without Dibala, “Lazio” without Immobile or even “inter” without Lukaku, – said the head coach “Atlanta” Gian Piero Gasperini.
At the same time, the coach of PSG Thomas Tuchel broke, by the way, metatarsal bone on one of last trainings, praised the “Atalanta” and admitted: it will be very difficult to leave the gate “dry” in a match with such a rival.
it is Very important to play carefully in defence. The “Atalanta” absolutely unique style. They attack all forces that are constantly pressing. All this means that we have to be focused and try not to miss. It would be incredibly difficult, but nothing can be done – said Tuchel.
