Conte set for record-breaking 200th

Antonio Conte will today mark his 200th Serie A game as a coach and could set yet more records with his Inter side against Sampdoria.

It kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

The Nerazzurri have already won the Scudetto with four rounds to spare, their earliest victory since 2006-07, when they had five fixtures still to play.

Much of the title success was down to their remarkable second half to the season, as they are unbeaten since the 2-1 defeat away to Samp on January 6, putting together 14 wins and four draws.

This will be a special occasion for so many reasons, not least that circa 3,000 Inter fans will be allowed into a holding area outside the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to help celebrate the Scudetto.

It is also going to be Conte’s 200th Serie A match as a coach and whatever happens today, he will set a new record as the tactician with the most wins in his first 200 games during the three points for a win era.

He is already on 135 victories out of 199 Italian top flight appearances on the touchline.

Inter could also set a new all-time club record of 14 consecutive Serie A home wins, having equalled the 13 set in May 2011.
