Inter stick with ideal Europa XI

Inter are expected to field the same starting XI again in their Europa League semi-final with Shakhtar Donetsk, benching Christian Eriksen.

It kicks off on Monday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT).

Antonio Conte has used the same initial line-up in his last three competitive games, all victories against Atalanta, Getafe and Bayer Leverkusen.

According to the latest reports from the training ground, he has no intention of making changes for the semi-final either.

Once again, Eriksen will be benched in favour of a 3-5-2 formation, topped off by Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.

Milan Skriniar is dropped in favour of Diego Godin, with Danilo D’Ambrosio and Ashley Young out wide.

Probable line-up

Inter (3-5-2): Handanovic; Godin, De Vrij, Bastoni; D’Ambrosio, Barella, Brozovic, Gagliardini, Young; Lautaro Martinez, Lukaku
