Conte gunning for record

first_imgInter boss Antonio Conte is aiming to equal his own record for best start to a Serie A season, set with Juventus in 2012-13 and 2013-14. Inter travel to the Stadio dall’Ara to face Bologna this afternoon, and if Conte’s side emerge victorious, it would equal his best start to a season in his coaching career. A win would give Conte 28 points from 11 games. This would equal his current record, which he gained when boss of Juventus in 2012-13 and 2013-14. In 2012-13 in fact, Conte had already reached 28 points by the 10th game, but in Week 11 Juve were defeated by Andrea Stramaccioni’s Inter, a result that ended Juve’s 49-game unbeaten streak. At this stage in his first season at Chelsea, he was on 25 points. His second season was slightly worse, ending on 22 points. With Bari in Serie B, in 2008-09, it was his worst start to a season, and had 17 points. His other Serie B experience, with Siena, saw him record 22 points by this stage.
