Denzel Dumfries seems to have found his niche at Internazionale by now. The former PSV player was already regularly in the starting line-up and has two assists to his name after ten games. The right wing defender does little that he has to succeed a great player like Achraf Hakimi in Milan.

"I don't feel that pressure", replied Dumfries to a question from the Italian SportMediaset about the succession of Hakimi. "Obviously he's had a good season and has done a great job overall, but now it's my turn. I'm very confident in myself and I know it will come out."

Last weekend, Dumfries showed himself again with an assist in the important 3-1 Champions League win over Sheriff Tiraspol. "Certainly after the defeat against Lazio, it was important that we recovered. It was also important for our starting point in the Champions League (now third place with four points, ed.) to win this match. We did that well."

Another duel awaits this weekend where the interests are high. Inter will receive a visit from Juventus on Sunday evening at 8.45 pm. "It is of course a historic poster. Two big teams - the two biggest in Italy - against each other. I'm looking forward to it. It will be a great game."
