Inter's expensively assembled squad were dealt a heavy dose of reality in a 1-0 defeat at Sassuolo in their Serie A season opener on Sunday.
Plenty is expected of Luciano Spalletti's side following an influx of fresh faces but they appeared disjointed against a team that finished seven places below them last season.
Punishment came in the shape of Domenico Berardi's 27th-minute penalty and it was all a counter-attacking Sassuolo needed to notch a seventh victory in 11 league meetings between the pair.
The Nerazzurri's highly anticipated attacking partnership of Mauro Icardi and Lautaro Martinez failed to threaten, with the injured Radja Nainggolan sure to be rushed back as soon as possible to shore up an unsteady midfield.
Spalletti's decision to name four new signings in his starting XI came at the cost of early organisation with only Samir Handanovic's outstretched left boot preventing Mehdi Bourabia from netting a third-minute opener.
The hosts did not have to wait long for a deserved lead, though, as Berardi converted from the spot in the 27th minute, Miranda having clumsily bundled over Federico Di Francesco.
Ivan Perisic stepped off the bench at the break but it was Matteo Politano who looked the most likely to conjure an equaliser against his former side, the winger flashing a fierce drive across the face on the hour.
Clearer chances soon came at both ends with Kevin Prince-Boateng brushing the outside of the near post with a clever first-time effort, before Icardi side-footed a low Perisic cross over the bar.
Stefan de Vrij threatened to snatch a point in stoppage time, but his header from Politano's delivery was impressively parried by Andrea Consigli as Sassuolo clung on.

After comfortably finishing in mid-table last season, Sassulo will be hoping for more of the same. Now coached by former Benavento boss Roberto De Zerbi, the Modena-based side will be looking to play with a more attacking outlook for the new season. A scalp against Inter Milan would go some way in kicking off their season.
Kevin-Prince Boateng joined the side in the summer from the Bundesliga. The Ghanian international is no stranger to Serie A having played for AC Milan in two separate stints. Now aged 31, Boateng can still pick up the game by the scruff of the neck and will be relishing his return to Italy with a game against Inter Milan.

As for Inter, it’s been a busy summer on the transfer front with a host of players joining the side. With Champions League football dramatically confirmed on the final day of last season, Luciano Spalletti has been backed by the clubs Chinese owners.
The pressure is now on to deliver a credible title challenge to Juventus, and aim to stop the Turin side win an eighth consecutive Scudetto. Inter have strengthened in crucial areas, with defence, midfield and attack all addressed in the close season.
Radja Nainggolan was one of the most consistent players in Italy last season for Roma, his big money move to Inter raised plenty of eyebrows. However, the fiery midfielder will be looking forward to reuniting with Spalletti who coached the Belgian for two seasons in Rome. After missing out on the 2018 World Cup, Nainggolan has had a full preseason at Inter and will be raring to go against Sassulo.
