Jakarta – –
The final of the Europa League 2020 presents Sevilla against Inter Milan. To win the trophy and finish the Lenten title, La Beneamata relies on LuLa again.
The last time Inter Milan won the title was Coppa Italia’s 2010/2011 win, when they beat Palermo 3-1 in the final on May 29, 2011 at the Olimpico in Rome.
Since then, La Beneamata has never been able to expand the championship collection again. However, the waiting period can end on Saturday (22/8) the morning of the WIB, as long as they can defeat Sevilla in the Europa League final.
The Sevilla vs Inter Milan party at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne is the last Europa League game this season that was hampered and delayed by the corona virus pandemic.
In the 2020 Europa League final, Romelu Lukaku also had the opportunity to win the title of top scorer as Inter Milan bomber. The Belgian striker has scored six goals, two goals behind Bruno Fernandes (Sporting / Manchester United) as the current top scorer in the Europa League.
Lukaku is not alone to be the mainstay. There is also Lautaro Martinez who will be the foundation of Inter Milan. The combination of the two is indeed a good one, as the collaboration between Lukaku and Lautaro is nicknamed “LuLa” by the Italian media, as reported AP.
In terms of productivity, the LuLa combination stands out from its colleagues at Inter Milan. In terms of transfer market, Romelu Lukaku has scored 33 goals in all competitions this season while Lautaro Martinez has scored 21 goals. In fact, no other Inter player has been able to score double-digit goals this season.
In addition to a total of 54 goals, the LuLa combination has 13 assists in all competitions this season. The details are seven templates from Lautaro and six more from Lukaku.
In terms of the Inter Milan squad’s assistance stats for the 2019/2020 season, LuLa’s efforts to penetrate the opposing goal have also been supported by a number of players so far, including Alexis Sanchez (10 assists), Antonio Candreva (nine) and Nicolò Barella (eight).
Especially for Romelu Lukaku, his motivation to score goals in this game will be even greater. Aside from still chasing the top scorer in the Europa League, he’s just one goal behind Brazilian legend Ronaldo as Inter’s most prolific player in his first season. Il Fenomeno scored 34 goals in his first season with the Nerazzurri in 1997/1998, which is a club record to this day.
One more. In the Sevilla vs Inter Milan game in the 2020 Europa League final, Romelu Lukaku also has a mission to end the fast for personal titles. The last time he won the cup was in 2009/2010 when he was still playing for Anderlecht.
