With both clubs changing managers during the summer break, eyes will be around Antonio Conte after joining the rivals of the team he won the leagues with, Juventus. Eyes will be on Marco Giampoalo too, after joining AC Milan after a successful spell with Sampdoria.
Marco Giampaolo has seen some criticism already due to his team selection decision for the quality of his team, he will be looking to put the early doubts and win against Inter. Marco Giampoalo took Sampdoria to a respectable 9th finish in his last season.Sampdoria finished 10th the previous two seasons.
Having a perfect start in the Serie A, Antonio Conte will be looking to win the Serie A in his first season just like he did with Juventus. Inter Milan is the first team under him after being sacked from Chelsea due to differences in vision.
With Inter expected to be compact in the back with that extra firepower in front we are going with a 1-0 win. However, make no mistake, Milan will be giving the game of their life.
