Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez to feature in the starting XI for Inter Milan

Italian giants Inter Milan gear up for their opening UEFA Champions League clash against Czech club Slavia Praha. Former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has done well with the squad that was given to him. Captain Samir Handanovic is sure to start in goal, with former Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin ahead of him. D'Ambrosio and Milan Skriniar will accompany him in defence. Candreva, Galiardini, Matias Vecino, Marcelo Brozovic, Stefano Sensi and Kwadwo Asamoah form a solid midfield. Sensi has proved to be a smart signing this season for Inter Milan. Conte will most likely go with the attacking pair - Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez - to lead from the front in the UEFA Champions League. Former Manchester United and Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is expected to start from the bench.
