"Back to the future" is the headline of today’s special Matchday Programme, our usual digital preview ahead of European home games. The unique format of this year’s Europa League has brought us the opportunity to produce a special edition dedicated to the 2020 FINALS, which kick off with Inter vs. Getafe tonight.
The Europa League, formerly the UEFA Cup. A tournament that brought great joy and success to the Nerazzurri in the ‘90s, with three trophies that we look back on and celebrate in this edition. The star of one of those European journeys to success guides us all the way from those days to the present, our Vice President, Javier Zanetti. We look back on the success of ’98 in an exclusive interview touching on his extraordinary goal in Paris, with the conversation then moving all the way to the current day, as Conte’s side prepare for a tough clash with Getafe.
“I saw the ball coming, and I shouted at Simeone to leave it...” were Zanetti’s words as he thought back to that night at the Parc des Princes in the final against Lazio, before skipping ahead to the present day.
In this digital magazine, in both Italian and English, fans can also find videos, statistics, the Europa League tournament tree and an interview with the great volleyball champion, Paola Egonu.
