is set to take place on Saturday at San Siro. According to recent reports,

Romelu Lukaku

“I get the feeling Inter were knocked back by losing the Scudetto last season and there’s disappointment in the air. They need something to shake them up and get back on track.

“Roma are certainly in better shape and want to get some consistency, they are an entertaining squad and can be the surprise of the season.”

Mourinho is set to go back to San Siro but since he is banned, he will not be on the touchline. The Portuguese tactician can salute the Nerazzurri fans from where he stands.

“His characteristics are always the same, professionalism and focus on the details. Mourinho has the ambition to do better than last season.”

The two Serie A side were competing in the summer transfer window as Roma penned a contract with Paulo Dybala when he hit free agency after he had met with the 2020-21 Serie A champions.
