Inter Milan begins the title defense campaign at home against Genoa


Inter Milan begins the campaign to defend its title as the Italian football champion at home against its guest Genoa, according to the calendar of the 2021-2022 season issued on Wednesday by the local federation of the game.

Inter Milan had put an end to the dominance of rivals Juventus in the league title in the last nine years, and won its first title since 2010.

Inter Milan is entering its new season under the leadership of its new coach, former Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi, the successor to Antonio Conte, who resigned after leading the Nerazzurri to their nineteenth league title.

Neighbor Milan begins its campaign in the new season against the second pole of the city of Genoa, and it comes to Sampdoria, while Atalanta plays third with Torino, who avoided relegation last season in the penultimate stage.

The Milan derby will be held in the twelfth stage on the seventh of November, back and the sixth of next February.

On the other hand, Juventus, who snatched fourth place and their ticket to the Champions League next season in the last stage of last season, begins his journey led by his new old coach Massimiliano Allegri, the successor to Andrea Pirlo, who was dismissed from his position, outside his rules against his host Udinese.

The 53-year-old had led Juventus to five consecutive league titles and four Italian Cups before he was sacked two years ago.

And it will be the first appearance of Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho with his team Roma at home against Fiorentina, while he faces the new Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti, the newly promoted Venice to the top flight, the team he coached for a brief period two decades ago.

Mourinho returned to Italy, where he led Inter Milan to the historic treble (League, Domestic Cup and Champions League) in 2010.

The Portuguese coach will face his former team, Inter Milan, in the sixteenth stage in Rome, on the fifth of December, in the first leg, and he will visit him again in San Siro in the 24th stage on the 24th of next April.

Inter Milan will meet Juventus face-to-face for the first time on October 24 in San Siro, and then back on April 3 in Turin.

The capital derby between Lazio and Rome will be held on September 26.

The former coach of Roma, Sampdoria and Cagliari, Eusebio Di Francesco, begins his career with Hellas Verona at home against his former team, Sassuolo.

The newly promoted Salernitana will be in the top flight for the first time since the 1998-1999 season, as a guest of Bologna, while Empoli will meet at home with Lazio and their new coach, Maurizio Sarri.

Next season, the Italian League adopted the model adopted by the Premier League, La Liga and the French League, with an asymmetric schedule, where the second half of the season will not be based on the first half, but rather organized in a completely different order.

The last match for Inter this season will be at home against Sampdoria on May 22, while Juventus plays its host Fiorentina, and Milan plays its host Sassuolo.
