Inter will welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to San Siro for the second leg of their 1/8 final meeting in Europa League. The tie is wide open, as both teams ended in a scoreless draw a week ago in Germany. Inter need only a win to progress, as a scoring draw will send the visitors through on away goals, while a repeat of last week’s result will see the game enter extra-time.
