’s team are currently in 11th place of the league table and have won only one of their last five Serie A matches. Ahead of his team’s Saturday match, Inzaghi has urged his team to face Inter with confidence.

“We need to put in a great team performance, try to be at 120 per cent and hope that Inter aren’t at 100 per cent,”

Inzaghi told

Sky Sport Italia.

“The important thing is that we must believe in ourselves, go there with a confident air and know we can play our game. It’ll be very satisfying to see Inter respect Benevento.”

Asked about his feelings on returning to San Siro, Inzaghi responded:

“San Siro is where I basically built my career. I came to Milan in order to play at San Siro. I remember the first goal I scored in the derby, when we were losing and then won 4-2.

“The rivalry with Inter has always been strong, but fair.”

Inzaghi was once Antonio Conte's teammate at Juventus, but the Inter manager will watch the game from the stands.

“I maintained a good relationship with him, he is a great coach. It’s just disappointing he won’t be there on the touchline because of a ban.”
