Inter Milan's pragmatism a new element under Roberto Mancini

From Juventus' historically bad start to the season, to Torino's historically good one, here are five things you didn't know about the second week of Serie A action.

There were no nerves in Stevan Jovetic's eyes as he stepped up to take the penalty awarded in the dying embers of Sunday night's game. Carpi had drawn level late on, but when the Montenegrin took the seven short steps before placing the ball coolly to the Carpi goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic's right, there was a glint in his eye. The simple fact of the matter is that Inter had not been on form for the second match in a row. But now, with a resolute attitude and a more solid foundation, they had made...

Inter Milan need Erik Lamela as much as the Tottenham forward needs them

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti doubts that Inter Milan will be able to secure the funds necessary to do anything other than loan Erik Lamela from Tottenham Hotspur, which may not be enough to satisfy the English side.

"Keep your hands off Lamela" read the banner outside Roma's Trigoria training ground back in 2013. 25,000 fans had gathered to watch the Giallorossi's final training session of the season and the message was clear. Seen as Francesco Totti's successor, Erik Lamela was on his way to Tottenham Hotspur much to the infuriation of fans. After two unsuccessful years, the Argentine is in talks with Inter but there will be no such banners in North London.

Lamela's father Jose told Gazzetta Dello Sport...

Inter celebrate Jovetic's winner but Mancini knows there is work to do

Here are five things that you need to know after the first week of Serie A.

Considering that only seconds were left in the match, it was scandalous that Stevan Jovetic was allowed so much space to score Inter's late winner vs. Atalanta. Still, that did not mean he still didn't have a lot to do and, as his right foot curler flew into the far corner, the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza erupted in relief.

The Nerazzurri managed a win but the performance was far from perfect. As dominant as it was, there are still areas of improvement needed. However, the last-gasp goal from the Montenegrin...

Inter must be focused vs. Atalanta despite summer of transfer activity

Roberto Mancini is focused on the transfer market but must concentrate on Sunday's season opener.

The departure of Mateo Kovacic to Real Madrid has certainly shifted Inter's focus. In truth the transfer happened so quickly that in some respects it was a blessing. However, it now leaves the Nerazzurri scurrying around for replacements with the season about to start. Inter have always had to beware of the boys from Bergamo and this Sunday's match will be no exception. Roberto Mancini needs to make the tie against Atalanta as his number one priority despite a much-needed recruitment drive.

Mateo Kovacic's sale to Real Madrid is bittersweet for Inter

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alejandro Moreno debate whether or not Mateo Kovacic would be a project worth investing in for the future.

Maybe the dull 0-0 draw against AEK Athens had something to do with it, but Roberto Mancini had a thousand-yard stare on Sunday. This certainly wasn't how he had envisioned things, but at the same time he was resigned to it. He announced to the media after Inter's final preseason friendly that talented midfielder Mateo Kovacic would be leaving for Real Madrid.

Citing UEFA's financial fair play as the reason, the Nerazzurri now have to plan for life after the Croatian after Real confirmed his departure...
