Sevilla boss Julen Lopetugui called Inter Milan a Champions League side ahead of tonight’s Europa League final.
But at this stage of the tournament, pretty much any team is.
The biggest drawcard of the Europa League is that the winners are guaranteed a place in the following season’s Champions League.
In this case, however, neither finalist needs that last bit of salvation.
Inter were runners-up in Serie A, missing out in a heavyweight slugfest for the Scudetto to Juventus.
And that’s what Lopetegui meant, the Nerazzurri are big time. Inter boast the best squad in Italian football outside of Turin.
See, for Inter, winning the Europa League is just something to appease the fans and investors.
Next season, they cannot fail in ripping the domestic title away from Juve. And then getting out of the Champions League group stage is a must, after missing out and ending up here.
Inter come into the final as favourites.
They have a striker all the big boys want in Lautaro Martinez.
They have Alexis Sanchez, who, despite a slump in the last two years, is a player with an insatiable appetite to win things.
And striker Romelu Lukaku has proven all his critics at Manchester United wrong, coming into this game with a record of having scored in the last 10 games of this tournament.
Sevilla, though, love this competition - winning it six times since 2000. While most clubs who have big money use the Europa League as a stepping stone, one can say that Sevilla see it for what it once was - the Uefa Cup.
Back in the day, winning the Champions League was much more exclusive than it is now.
To win for the European Champions Cup until the 1990s, you had to be domestic league winners just to qualify.
Now the richer leagues get four teams to compete in the tournament, since the most expensive players play there.
Sevilla is proof though that “staying in their lane” can still get you a paar shiny koppe.
And Inter better not get stage fright tonight when they face the Europa League’s Juventus - Sevilla have real class.
