Benevento will host Inter Milan on Wednesday as the Serie A season reaches its third round of fixtures.

Both sides have identical records and are level on three points apiece in eighth and ninth positions on the table.

The hosts showed great determination to come from two goals down to beat Sampdoria 3-2 on their own turf at the weekend, while Inter Milan had an even more dramatic victory at the San Siro.

The Nerrazurri played out a see-saw game with Fiorentina that saw the two sides exchange leads, with a 63rd-minute strike from Federico Chiesa appearing to be enough to give the Viola all three points until last-gasp goals by Romelu Lukaku and Dani D'Ambrosio completed the turnaround for Antonio Conte's side.

The two teams have met on three occasions in the past and Inter Milan picked up a victory in all three matches.

The most recent clash between the pair came in the 2018-19 Coppa Italia, with the 2010 Serie A champions winning 6-2 to progress to the quarterfinals.

They have the perfect opponents in newly-promoted Benevento and while Gli Stregoni deserve praise for impressively topping Sampdoria in their opening fixture, Inter should not have too many problems overcoming a side that are playing only their second season of Serie A football.

Prediction: Benevento 1-3 Inter Milan
