After two rounds of fixtures in the 2020/21 Serie A, five teams have a 100% record.

Napoli, Atalanta, Verona, Milan, and Inter can't be separated by points at the top, with defending champions Juventus dropping points last weekend versus Roma.

Despite Antonio Conte's reputation for being a pragmatic coach, Inter have been involved in two hugely entertaining first two matches, defeating Fiorentina 4-3 before then firing five past Benevento.

New signing Achraf Hakimi impressed in his first start against the latter, recording a goal and an assist. Expect him to feature against down the right flank, with Ashley Young on the opposite wing.

Milan Skriniar continues to be linked with a move away from Inter, but Conte trusted him enough to start him during the week and will likely do so again alongside Stefan de Vrij and Aleksandar Kolarov, who should be given the nod ahead of Alessandro Bastoni.

Conte has a raft of players to choose from in central midfield, with Robert Gagliardini the most certain name to keep his place from midweek after his starring performance.

Lautaro Martinez should return to the starting XI in place of Alexis Sanchez after coming off the bench to score against Benevento.
