The Serie A returns with a bang this weekend with a mouthwatering clash as Inter Milan host Roma on Saturday evening.

Inter Milan will get their UEFA Champions League season underway with a highly-anticipated match against Bayern Munich.

The Serie A giants are coming off a 3-2 defeat to eternal rivals AC Milan, leaving them in 8th place with 9 points.

Bayern on the other hand were held to a second successive stalemate in a 1-1 draw against Union Berlin.

La Liga’s Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen are the other two teams that will take to the field from Group C.

The perennial Bundesliga champions have been victorious on each of their previous three visits to Inter.

Even after losing star forward Robert Lewandowski to Barca, Bayern have already scored 26 goals across six games this season.

It will be hard to keep them at bay and Inter need to be on their best form if they are to get anything from this first leg.

Romelu Lukaku remains absent due to a thigh injury and that is the main concern for the hosts.

In his absence, either Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa will get a role in the starting XI to partner with Argentine Lautaro Martinez.

Matteo Darmian and former Dortmund midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also set to get places in the starting line-up.

For the visitors, new signing Sadio Mane continues to impress and he will definitely lead the Bavarians attacking line.

Jamal Musiala has scored five goals already and he should start in midfield once again, alongside Joshua Kimmich.
