Inter begin life with Conte at the helm at home against neo-promoted Lecce. Godin out. Icardi frozen out.
Inter have a new coach, charismatic Antonio Conte, and are in the process of strengthening the squad.
Had a mixed pre-season: won 5 (2-1 vs Lugano, 6-5 vs PSG following penalties, 7-6 vs Valencia following penalties, 8-0 vs Virtus Bergamo and 2-0 vs Gozzano) and lost 3 (0-1 vs Manchester United, 1-2 vs Juventus and 3-4 vs Tottenham, the last 2 both following penalties).
Lukaku already looks in good form, having scored in both last two friendlies.
Inter officially debut in the new season with a home clash against neo-promoted Lecce.
Godin is out because of a muscular injury.
Icardi was frozen out and should quit soon.
Barella might not be given a start as he is not fully ready physically.
Lazaro could be considered instead of Candreva on the right flank.
Inter will not announce the squad.
Inter hosted Lecce 15 times: they won 14 and lost 1 (0-1, in November 2000). Overall, they scored 43 goals and conceded 6. They won the last 7 in a row.
