Inter Milan continue their preparations for the 2022-23 campaign as they visit the Stade Bollaert-Delelis to face RC Lens in a thrilling friendly on Saturday.

The Serie A outfit head into the weekend unbeaten in each of their last seven outings, while the hosts will be seeking a fourth consecutive win in pre-season.

RC Lens maintained their stellar form in pre-season as they cruised to a 3-1 victory over Clermont Foot last Saturday.

They have now picked up three wins and one draw from their four pre-season outings and are unbeaten in 12 straight games since a 1-0 loss against Strasbourg on April 3.

Lens’ fine string of results has been owing to their solid defensive display as they have kept three clean sheets and conceded one goal in their last four games.

Meanwhile, Inter Milan turned in a superb performance last Saturday when they came from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw against AS Monaco.

Prior to that, the Italian heavyweights kicked off their pre-season with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Swiss outfit FC Lugano on July 12.

Inter head into the weekend unbeaten in seven consecutive outings, claiming six wins and one draw since April’s 2-1 loss at Bologna.
