Inter Milan will travel to the Volkswagen Arena to face Bundesliga high-flyers Wolfsburg in their Europa League last 16 clash.

Roberto Mancini’s Serie A strugglers have endured a torrid domestic league campaign, but have recently revived their away form on time for this European encounter.

A shining light in the Nerazzurri’s bleak season has been in-form forward Mauro Icardi, who has sensationally struck 17 times in all competitions so far this current campaign.

The magnificent marksman is a best priced 7/4 with William Hill to add to his impressive tally anytime in Germany.

Mancini’s menacing striker is on a rampant run, and confidently tucked away a late Paneka-style penalty to secure a 2-2 draw with Italian league rivals Napoli last time out.

Clinical Icardi has also netted four times in his last six outings, including a winner over Cagliari last month.

Inter are one of five Serie A clubs to have reached this stage of the competition, while Wolfsburg are the sole German representative.

However, the hosts will have to overcome a poor record against Italian opposition, having lost twice and also drawn once to Inter’s bitter city rivals AC Milan.

Wolfburg’s key attacking threat will again be deadly Dutchman Bas Dost, who has convincingly racked up 15 goals so far this season.

During his sublime goalscoring spell, the ferocious finisher sensationally smashed in a four-goal haul in a 5-4 triumph over Bayer Leverkusen, proving his emphatic killer instinct.

Deadly Dost is a best priced 10/3 with Sky Bet to open proceedings in Germany and add to his terrific season tally.

The centre forward has enjoyed a successful rise to prominence since the turn of the New Year, firing in 13 goals already, which includes a Europa League brace against Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon.

Mancini’s visiting Italians will be hoping for better success than in the club’s previous trips to Germany, having recorded only five ever victories from 16 outings.

One of those triumphs included a famous 3-2 coup over Wolfsburg’s current title-rivals Munich in 2011, when former forward Goran Pandev struck a decisive fifth goal.

Both Icardi and Dost will be hoping to emulate the Macedonian’s past heroics when they take to the pitch in this potentially enthralling Europa League meeting at the Volkswagen Arena.
