Champions League group stage draw

Juventus, Inter, Atalanta and Lazio are involved when the Champions League group stage draw takes place in Geneve at 16.00 UK time.

Lazio still lacking valid options

The Scudetto run crumbled due to a lack of strength in depth, so Lee Bushe explains why Lazio fans fear a similar outcome in Serie A and the Champions League this season.

Not for the first time, Lazio supporters voiced their discontent with Claudio Lotito’s running of the club. Displaying a banner over a bridge in Rome, they did not hold back, accusing the club of making “false promises” towards them and complaining about the “usual havoc” in the transfer window.

Conte: 'Inter are ready for new season'

Inter coach Antonio Conte aims to ‘confirm the credibility gained’ but believes 2020-21 will be ‘much more difficult’ for the Nerazzurri.

Conte helped the Beneamata to second in Serie A, the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia and finished runners-up in the Europa League, leading to a shorter preparation period ahead of the new campaign.

But the coach revealed he has seen ‘great attitude and desire’ from the players at Appiano and vows to be ready when they host Fiorentina on Saturday.

De Roon: 'Atalanta improve every year'

Dutch midfielder Marten de Roon says Atalanta are eager to get back in action and feels the Orobici ‘improve every year’.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s men finished third in Serie A last season and reached the quarter-finals in the Champions League, something that obviously gives the players confidence ahead of the new season.

De Roon admitted they have had a ‘short holiday’, but the midfielder just wants to get back on the pitch.

The sky's the limit for Atalanta

La Dea have maintained the core of the side that drew plaudits both at home and abroad last season, and Owen Diana believes they can do even better in 2020-21.

The dawn of a new campaign is always exciting for any football fan, but that is especially true when your team has resided in dreamland for the last two years. Consecutive third-placed finishes and a trip to the Champions League quarter-finals were unprecedented for Atalanta, but they seem well placed to follow up those historic feats with further success in 2020-21. Finishing in the top four and reaching the knockout stages in Europe’s premier cup competition should be the minimum aim. However, a tilt at domestic and continental glory is not out of the question.

Immobile scored 36 times in Serie A last season and helped Lazio reach fourth and qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 13 years.

“The Golden Boot was my target, a personal dream,” Immobile told Radio Esercito. “I came very close to it a couple of years ago but due to an injury I missed my opportunity.
