Italy's Milan giants face off in Saturday's local derby which pits Serie A's form teams against one another in a match which will give an early indication of their title credentials.
The San Siro will host a rematch of last season's Champions League semifinal, a fixture that promises similar fireworks to the two blockbuster clashes in May which went Inter Milan's way.
Inter and AC Milan are locked on nine points at the top of the table after perfect starts from both in which summer signings have made an immediate impact.
Simone Inzaghi's Inter have scored eight times without conceding in their opening three matches thanks to a strike partnership between Lautaro Martinez and new arrival Marcus Thuram which has brought seven goals.
Milan meanwhile have a trio of new signings thrilling fans alongside their established stars, with Tijjani Reijnders and Chelsea old boys Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Cristian Pulisic hitting the ground running.
Stefano Pioli has Milan playing an entertaining, fluid style of football boosted by Pulisic's presence on the right wing, which has freed up star man Rafael Leao and given increased service to four-goal Olivier Giroud who should start despite picking up an ankle knock on international duty.
"We've started really well and I know that we'll do all we can," USA forward Pulisic told the Gazzetta Dello Sport.
"We're hopeful for the Scudetto, we've got good players and a great mix of talent. We can win."
Inter have, Thuram aside, a similar starting XI to the one which lost to Manchester City in Istanbul in June but have quality back up in the likes of Juan Cuadrado and Davide Frattesi.
