Inter Milan and Partizan Belgrade will clash in Group H of the Europa League on Thursday with the Serbian side facing elimination from the competition of they cannot claim an unlikely win against the Italian giants. The game kicks off at 3.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.
Partizan Belgrade are third in Group H with just one point from their first three matches. Just one draw and two losses leaves them without a win so far, and that is something they must change today if they are to get through this group and into the knock out stages of the competition.
Inter Milan are only second in the table so far with seven points from their opening three games, although Rubin Kazan only took first spot with their 1-0 win earlier in the day in their away match against Neftchi, who are bottom of the table. If Inter win today then they will reclaim top spot in the group and be on 10 points from four games like Rubin Kazan.
Two weeks ago Partizan Belgrade were just minutes away from claiming a historic draw at the San Siro against Italy in the corresponding fixture, however, Italian striker Rodrigo Palacio scored late on to give Inter a 1-0 win.
Partizan will be hoping that home advantage will help them succeed where they ultimately fell short two weeks ago. A draw would not help them much, but a win would help give them optimism that they can go on and win their final two games and clinch a knock out place.
Partizan boss Vermezovic has said prior to the game, "The majority of the fans believe that we have nothing to lose, but if we lose on Thursday we lose our last chance to get into the next round, so there is everything to lose. We did so well in the first game and now we have great expectations, but we need to show that courage back at home. Hopefully luck will be on our side. If we are brave and stay relaxed, we can get a good result. We have the right to hope, since this team has shown it should be taken seriously, just like the big European teams. We know what we can do. We are hoping to produce some beautiful football in a full stadium, and this team plays better when the fans are behind them," according to Blic Sport.
However, Inter have currently won nine games straight and will be no mood to give that record up to Partizan Begrade.
