Inter Milan vs Lecce for the Italian Serie A championship match on Monday at San Siro Stadium.
The Inter Milan team enters its first meeting of the new edition of the Italian championship and is having a kind of zero year for this sporting season that begins.
The team, throughout this summer with the reopening of the transfer market, practically revolutionized its squad, and changed entirely at the level of the coaching staff.
Betting on the already experienced and renowned António Conte to command the team Nerazzurri, this after the dismissal of Luciano Spalletti and the coaching staff.
So, it remains to be seen if the team will finally return to their best Serie A moments this season, notably by stepping in to fight for the title, although it seems clear to me that the difference for Juventus or Napoli at this time is still quite considerable, especially since the team has been far from those achievements for many years.
As for the Lecce team in their game for matchday 1 of Serie A, playing their first match in 1st division of the Italian football championship since 8 years ago, in 2011/2012, where the team ended up relegated to Serie B and was no longer able to regain its presence at the top.
The team thus made it into this Serie A season after finishing their Serie B campaign last year in the 2nd position of the leaderboard, even missing the championship by just 1 or 2 points (Brescia finished with 67 points, 1 more than Lecce).
Considering what might be expected of Inter this season – a very defensive and tactically disciplined team – typical on Conte and given that this is only the first official meeting of the two sides, I can see here a very balanced game and not very exciting in offensive terms, which leads me to predict not only few goals but only one of the teams to score.
