The capital plays host to the first crunch match of the Serie A season on Saturday as defending champions Internazionale travel to Roma.

The teams sit joint top of the standings on 11 points after Inter´s 3-0 win over Sampdoria coincided with the Romans dropping two points at Fiorentina on Wednesday night.

The 2-2 draw in Florence was the second time Roma had failed to secure maximum points in a week following Sunday´s draw with Juventus as the early pace setters relinquished their 100% record.
