At least for now. The Nerazzurri meet Getafe at Schalke’s VELTINS-Arena in an attempt to advance to the quarter finals of the ecu competition.
The original series was meant to be home and residential , but after a five month delay, one match will decide the result .
The tie will now be a one-legged affair on neutral soil in Gelsenkirchen after the first meeting between the edges in March was called off by the coronavirus pandemic.
Either Rangers or Bayer Leverkusen await the winners off this match within the quarter-finals of the condensed tournament, which can be played out over subsequent three weeks.
Getafe, meanwhile, are one among the foremost disappointing teams in Spain, of late.
The club registered just one victory in La Liga since the restart – a poor run of form that saw them finish the campaign in eighth place, thus missing out on European football for next season.
The Azulones, however, did defeat competitive favourites Ajax to succeed in the Round of 16 stage
and manager Jose Bordalas are going to be looking to realize some inspiration from that result
because the Spanish outfit look to cause yet one more upset within the Europa League in the week .
Getafe are playing against a Spanish side for the primary time
and are getting to reach the quarter-finals of this competition for a second time, having done so in 2007-08.
Inter Milan vs Getafe Team News
Matias Vecino is sidelined for Inter, but the Italians may have Stefano Sensi back involved because the midfielder returned to training last week.
Lautaro Martinez partnered Romelu Lukaku within the 2-0 convert Atalanta BC on Saturday and is out there here,
having sat out Inter’s most up-to-date European match through suspension.
However, Alexis Sanchez is an alternative choice up top in what might be his final game
for the club before returning to parent club Manchester United, or indeed all three could start.
Getafe are going to be without centre-back Erick Cabaco on Wednesday as he only joined in January and has not been registered to play.
Deyverson has returned to Brazil following the conclusion of his loan stint, meaning that Angel Rodriguez and Jaime Mata should begin top.
Elsewhere, Stoke City loanee Oghenekaro Etebo is recovering from injury and is unlikely to feature within the one-legged tie.
