1.This is the first ever European meeting between Sevilla and Internazionale – it is the sixth time in 11 seasons of the UEFA Europa League that the two teams in the final are meeting for the first time ever in a European competition, with the last occasion the 2015-16 final, when Sevilla beat Liverpool 3-1.
2. Sevilla are the most successful side in UEFA Cup/Europa League history, reaching the final (six times including 2019-20) and winning the competition (five times) on more occasions than any other side.
3. Inter have reached their 10th major UEFA European final, and their first since the 2010 UEFA Champions League final, when they won 2-0 against Bayern Munich. They are the ninth team overall to reach 10 major UEFA finals, and the third Italian side after AC Milan and Juventus (both 14 finals).
4. Sevilla have lifted the trophy in each of their five appearances in UEFA finals (UEFA Cup/Europa League & European Cup/Champions League) – only Liverpool (six between 1972-73 and 1983-84) and Real Madrid (nine between 1984-85 and 2017-18 – an ongoing run) have won more consecutive such finals.
5. Inter have won all five of their UEFA Europa League matches this season and are looking to win six major UEFA European matches in a row for only the second time (six between December 2009 and April 2010).
