    Welcome to our live blog of Inter vs Shakhtar Donetsk in the Semi Finals of the Europa League.

    A place in the final against Sevilla is at stake in tonight’s game, after the Spanish side beat Manchester United 2-1 last night.

    Inter have not won this tournament since 1998, while Shakhtar won the competition as recently as 2009.

    Both sides started this season in the Champions League, but were eliminated to the Europa League after finishing third in their groups.

    Shakhtar have defeated Benfica, Wolfsburg and Basel en route to the Semi Finals, with Inter eliminating Ludogorets, Roma and Bayer Leverkusen.

    Inter frontman Romelu Lukaku’s goal against Bayer Leverkusen in the Quarters made him the first player to score in NINE consecutive Europa League games, and the former Manchester United striker will be looking to take that record into double digits this evening.

    Inter will be without new signing Alexis Sanchez after he picked up a muscle injury in training.

    The Chilean wide-man recently made his Inter transfer permanent, after a nightmare stint at Manchester United.

    Matias Vecino is also out for Antonio Conte's men.

    Georgian Davit Khocholava is back for Shakhtar after a ban.

    Kick off is at 8pm and team news follows shortly.
