On Saturday, he made his Serie A debut against Fiorentina at the San Siro Stadium and he provided the assist that helped Romelu Lukaku score the third goal in their 4-3 win.
Four days later, Hakimi helped Lukaku open the scoring as early as in the first minute at Benevento. Towards the end of the first-half, he stretched their lead to 4-1 with a 42nd-minute strike after two quick-fire goals from Roberto Gagliardini and Lukaku.
Few minutes after replacing Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez sealed the emphatic victory for Conte’s men who moved to second in the Serie A table with six points after two games.
With two assists in his first two matches, Hakimi matched his compatriot Houssine Kharja’s feat as the first Inter Milan player to provide an assist in his first two Serie A outings.

The Morocco international played from start to finish while Ghana‘s Kwadwo Asamoah did not make Conte’s squad for the trip.
Hakimi will hope to maintain his impressive performance when Inter Milan visit Lazio for their next league match on Sunday.
