Brehme: 'Inter Europa League favourites'

Andreas Brehme claims Inter are ‘without doubt the Europa League favourites, followed by Bayer Leverkusen, but both are stronger than Manchester United.’

Brehme spent four years at Inter from 1988-92 and was also assistant manager under Giovanni Trapattoni once he retired.

He was therefore asked to give his views ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League quarter-final between Inter and Bayer Leverkusen.

“Without doubt, Inter are the favourites to win the Europa League,” Brehme told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“The Nerazzurri are a great team, but Bayer Leverkusen are strong too and have an excellent player in attack like Kai Havertz. Antonio Conte has the advantage, I’d say.

“In fact, I will go so far as to say that whoever wins this quarter-final has a huge chance of lifting the Europa League trophy. The semi-final, which will be against either Shakhtar Donetsk or FC Basel, in my view should be pretty simple.

“On the other side of the tournament, I think Manchester United will reach the Final, but both Inter and Bayer are stronger than the English club.”
