With Juventus dropping points on the weekend, Inter Milan will be eager to take advantage with their game in hand. Watch Serie A live.
Antonio Conte's Inter Milan will be on the road to face newly-promoted side Benevento this Wednesday in their rescheduled Serie A 2020-21 matchweek 1 fixture. Watch the Serie A live in India.
The fixture was originally supposed to kick off the Serie A season on September 20 but was rescheduled due to Inter's request for a delayed start owing to their late involvement in the Europa League final in the last campaign.
Two other postponed matchweek 1 fixtures, Udinese vs Spezia and Lazio vs Atalanta, will also be wrapped up this midweek before matchweek 3 gets underway this weekend.
Inter started their Serie A campaign with a 4-3 win over Fiorentina on Sunday. It was a thrilling contest with Inter having to rely on late goals from Romelu Lukaku and Danilo D'Ambrosio to clinch a come-from-behind victory.
Aiming to knock Juventus off their perch and finally end their nine-year-long monopoly on the Italian top-flight title, Inter have splurged in the transfer window this season. They have added former Real Madrid player Achraf Hakimi, left-back Aleksander Kolarov and Barcelona's Arturo Vidal for the campaign.
Alexis Sanchez, who was on loan from Manchester United last season, has also been roped in on a permanent deal.
Having lost out on the title to Juventus by a single point last season, Conte will look to string together a run of results to keep the Old Lady, who dropped two points last weekend, under pressure from the get-go.
With Lazio waiting for them next matchweek and a high-voltage Milan derby against arch-rivals AC Milan scheduled for the subsequent matchweek, it’s imperative Inter pick up all three points against new boys Benevento.
That, however, will be easier said than done. Benevento, the Serie B 2019-20 champions, started their Serie A venture with a solid 3-2 win over Sampdoria and will be looking for a big scalp in the shape of Inter.
Also considering former AC Milan legend Filippo Inzaghi is Benevento’s coach, expect no quarters to be given to Conte's side in the tie.
