Conte insists only victory will confirm them as a contender.
He said, “What I want for this year is to confirm our status among the group of teams who will try to win. We have no message to send other than to be credible. Being Inter, it is our duty to believe and to fight to the end for the maximum prize.
“This is a very balanced campaign, you have to sweat for every single point and there are no easy games. At the end of the day, the values like organisation and hard work will emerge.
“I always ask my players to keep improving, on the field and off, because as long as a player is active, he must try to improve. My request is for excellence, because if we want to achieve something extraordinary, then we have to do something extraordinary."
