Italian football journalist Paolo Condo has insisted that both Inter and Roma must aim to win the Europa League following the draw earlier on today.
Inter are due to face Getafe in the Europa League last 16 at the beginning of August and can face either Rangers or Bayer Leverkusen in the quarter finals of the tournament, the remainder of which is to be contested across four cities in Germany during August.
Roma can meanwhile face either Wolves or Olympiakos in the next round of the tournament if they are to get past Sevilla in the last 16.
Both sides should they progress past the semi finals would not be able to meet one another but they could of course meet in the final on August 21.
“Inter and Roma have to compete to win the Europa League,” Condo explained in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia earlier on today after the draw was made.
Condo proceeded to discuss the two teams current form.
“Both are not having a good time, we will see what they are like in a month. They have very difficult opponents to face in Sevilla and Getafe. In any case, both the Nerazzurri and the Giallorossi must come out of this moment and have hope.”
