Everyone knows that Inter Milan is one of Italy’s pride when it comes down to football. The club has always been a force to be reckoned with in Serie A, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Nerazzurri are also a dangerous opponent in the Champions League.
Even though the club does not have as many trophies as AC Milan and Real Madrid, it definitely left a big mark in the European football competition.
The Last Champions League Trophy
Every football fan remembers the historic season that took place in 2009-2010. Bettors who’ve decided to use the Coral application or the brand’s desktop site to bet on Inter will never forget the club’s historic treble.
During that time, Inter had an impressive lineup of players, so people expected them to win a lot of trophies. Led by Jose Mourinho, the Italian powerhouse became the first team in the country that successfully made a treble after winning Serie A, Coppa Italia, and the UEFA Champions League.
The latter was definitely the most important trophy because the last time the Milanese club won the competition was 45 years ago.
Following the success, Inter became the sixth team from in Europe that managed to achieve a treble. Besides Mourinho, the club had some of the best players in the world during that time, such as Javier Zanetti, Ricardo Quaresma, Wesley Sneijder, Deigo Milito, and more.
The Second European Cup Trophy
Since it took 45 years to win their third Champions League title, most of Inter’s current fans probably haven’t watched the Grand Final against Benfica during season 1964/64.
The Nerazzurri managed to win their second European Champions Clubs’ Cup after a fantastic grand final against one of Portugal’s strongest teams – SL Benfica.
Interestingly, this was Inter’s second trophy because the Italian club managed to win the tournament for the first time the year before that.
Before reaching the big final, Inter had to eliminate Liverpool, which wasn’t easy because the English squad was strong. However, thanks to the team’s effort, Inter Milan reached the final and managed to defeat Benfica at San Siro.
The First European Cup Win
Inter’s first major success in the tournament was in 1963/64. Needless to say, online betting and the Coral mobile app didn’t exist back then, which is a shame because the odds would’ve been really attractive.
The grand final that took place in Vienna was intriguing to watch because Inter had to go up against Real Madrid. During that time, the Spanish club was phenomenal, so most people probably thought Inter would be the underdog.
However, the fired-up Italian squad showed everyone that they deserved the victory and took it after defeating Los Blancos with a score of 3:1.
What’s The Situation Nowadays?
After the historical 2009-2010 season, Inter wasn’t that successful in the international football scene during the next ten years.
The Italian club reached the quarter-final in 2010-2011 and the Round of 16 in 2011-12, and it was eliminated in the group stage two times – in 2018/19 and 2019/20.
Despite that, the team’s impressive 2020/21 season shows that you should definitely be careful when betting against them.
So, make sure to read more information about the club’s last couple of matches before deciding whether it’s worth the risk.
