Latest News:

Inter will debut their new third kit tonight.

“Inter is a really formidable team.” Slavia Praha’s Josef Husbauer said ahead of tonight’s game. “They started the season very well and have a great coach. I cannot find any weak points about them. We will present ourselves at San Siro properly prepared,”

Antonio Conte is not taking the underdog opponents lightly: “Slavia Prague dominated last year domestically, even in the presence of teams like Viktoria Plzen. We must play at a high intensity and play our brand of football, knowing that we have a great team in front of us that has also done well in the Europa League.

Both Lautaro Martinez and Matias Vecino will return to tonight’s lineups after being dropped to the bench for Saturday’s game against Udinese.

Danilo D’Ambrosio may feature, as Conte looks to give either Stefan de Vrij or Diego Godin a rest ahead of the Milan derby.

Just under 55,000 tickets have been sold for the first match day of Inter’s Champions League campaign, the lowest total so far this season.
