Europa League Round of 32 Draw: Inter v Ludogorets

Europa League 2020 Final

Inter are drawn Ludogorets in the last 32 of the Europa League, whilst Roma will face Gent in the next hurdle.

The Nerazzurri finished third in their Champions League group, behind Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, and now face Ludogorets, who lead the Bulgarian top tier.

The first match will take place in Razgrad on February 20, whilst the return leg will be played at San Siro one week later, on February 27.

Vice-President Javier Zanetti has assured that Inter looking to be “leading lights” in the Europa League this season.

Zanetti, when asked about the draw, warned they couldn’t take anything “for granted” in the first leg as he expects “some surprises” next year.

“There are no matches that can be taken for granted, especially in these competitions,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“We must approach every game in the best possible way because there are always some surprises.

“Now we want to finish the year well in the League and then we’ll have time to prepare for these two matches.”

The Argentine admitted he was “sorry” Inter crashed out of the Champions League but made it clear they would take the Europa seriously.

“We want to be leading lights because we always want to do well in Europe.

“We are sorry to exit the Champions League, now we must concentrate on this tournament, which is equally important.

“It becomes an objective. We prepared the group well [for the Champions League], but the pitch said we weren’t ready.

“Let’s remember that this is the beginning of a journey where we are doing good things.

“There’s always time to improve some things.”

Meanwhile, Roma went through from their Europa League group and are handed a tie with Gent in the next round.

The Belgians reached the Round of 32 by topping Group I, where they came through unbeaten against Saint-Etienne, Oleksandria and Wolfsburg.
