INT vs LCE: Antonio Conte alluded in many press conference that he wouldn’t have taken up the job had there not been assurances from the club hierarchy that they are serious about ending Juventus’ Serie A reign
No fixture can’t be taken for granted at the top level, but on paper, the game against Lecce is perhaps one of the easiest for the Nerazzurri. Well, that’s the start for Conte and his team.

Inter Milan Team News:
- Diego Godin is still not recovered fully from a muscular problem in his left thigh which forced him to miss Inter’s pre-season. The 33-year-old will be missing his new team’s opening game of the season.
- The Uruguayan arrived from Atletico Madrid as a free agent and is the only player injured on the team’s roster.
