Match Preview

Antonio Conte’s managerial bow sees Inter Milan take on Lecce at the San Siro, where they have only ever lost one H2H (W14, L1). Inter have dominated Lecce during this run, scoring 43 goals and conceding just six whilst registering nine clean sheets.
Having finished with a league-high 17 clean sheets last season (44.74%), a repeat in this fixture looks possible. The ‘Nerazzurri’ were very frugal at home in Serie A (SA) last term, conceding only ten goals, and witnessing over 2.5 total goals in just six of their 19 home fixtures.
In fact, a single-goal margin decided nine of Inter’s 13 results (wins/losses) at home in the league last campaign, with six of those finishing by a 1-0 scoreline.
Back in the top-flight for the first time since 2011/12, Lecce will be eager to replicate their away form from then. On the road that season, Lecce won 58.33% of their total points (21 of 36), and also picked up five of their eight wins. That’s in sharp contrast, however, to their away form last season in Serie B, where they picked up just 34.85% of their points on the road.
Excluding draws, eight of Lecce’s 12 SB away results (wins/losses) last season were decided by a one-goal margin. That was also the case in seven of Lecce’s 13 SA results in their last top-flight campaign.
Players to watch: Inter won five of the six SA matches that Lautaro Martínez scored in last season.
On loan from Genoa, Gianluca Lapadula (LEC) has 63 SA games and 15 goals under his belt.
Stat attack: Inter have kept 13 first-half clean sheets in their last 14 SA season openers.
Lecce have never won a SA opener in 15 attempts (D6, L9).
Five of the previous six goals that Lecce have scored at the San Siro arrived before half-time.
