The 2020-2021 Serie A fixtures list has been released and Andrea Pirlo’s first league match in charge of Juventus will be at home to Sampdoria as he looks to guide the club to a record 10th successive Serie A title.
Juventus start at home to Sampdoria before a daunting trip to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Roma. For Inter Milan, who look set to be Juventus’ toughest challenger for the title, they begin their bid away to newly-promoted Benevento.
The release sparked lots of interest in when Pirlo and Conte will go head to head but fans will have to remain patient with the first meeting not until January 2021.
Lazio, who at the time of the stoppage for the coronavirus pandemic found themselves a point adrift of Juventus, will look to make amends for their poor end to last season with their opener against Atalanta.
Inter finished a point behind Juventus last season and know they only have themselves to blame having been beaten in both matches they played against Maurizio Sarri’s side.
Juventus fell to seven league defeats under Sarri last season and those match-ups jump out for fans wary of Pirlo suffering a similar collapse in his first season in charge.
Juventus travel to face Lazio in November before going to Naples and Verona in February as they look for a much more polished record in chasing Decimo.
