With two goals each from Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, Inter scored a 5-0 win over the Ukrainian side in the semi-final round on Monday, sealing a spot against Sevilla in the final.
The Argentine opened the scoring 19 minutes into what was the only first-half finish, beginning with what turned out to be a series A side avalanche of goals.
In the Europa League final, Inter will face Sevilla as doubles from Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku helped Shakhtar Donetsk dispatch 5-0 in Dusseldorf.
Five-time winners Sevilla came from behind to beat Manchester United on Sunday, and they were joined with a rampant victory by Antonio Conte’s side in the final.
Martinez’s season’s first Europa League goal got Inter off the mark, and after Danilo D’Ambrosio doubled the Nerazzurri ‘s lead he had his second with 16 minutes left.
Inter sealed the largest margin of victory in a single Europa League / UEFA Cup semi-final match with the five-goal margin. Each face of Inter carries the broadest smile. They wanted this, and they got their reward.
Furthermore, it was the biggest disappointment for Shakhtar Donetsk in Europe after a 6-0 loss in November 2018 to Manchester City in the Champions League.
Sevilla is awaiting Inter in what promises to be a tightly fought final on Friday in Cologne, but with Martinez and Lukaku in such a shape, the Serie A club should be considered favorites.
Meanwhile, Lukaku and Martinez continued to dominate themselves in all competitions with the two becoming the first Inter duo to score more than 20 goals each in a single season since Adriano and Obafemi Martins did so during the 2004-05 campaign.
During that 10-game stretch, Lukaku was involved in 18 total goals, scoring 14 while assisting on a further four.
