Inter Milan have been replaced at the top of the Serie A standings, and could see their title snatched away from them by their bitterest rivals. However, there is still a long way to go, and they will be looking to get back on track against Sassuolo on Sunday.
Serie A Preview
Inter Milan’s incredibly strong grip on top spot in Serie A has been wiped out, as they have been replaced at the summit by AC Milan. However, panic won’t be setting in at the San Siro, as they are still in an incredibly strong position. They are just a point of the neighbours, but have a game in hand over both them, and third-placed Napoli.
The recent form Inter have been in would be a slight concern through, as they have claimed just one victory in their previous four matches. They also come into this fixture without a win in two.
Inter weren’t able to bounce back from defeat against AC Milan in the derby last weekend, as they were held by Napoli. Inter needed to come back from a goal down in that fixture, and were thankful for Edin Dzeko’s quick thinking to level the scores after 47 minutes.
This may not be the worst fixture for Inter this weekend, as Sassuolo have been in terrible form over recent weeks in Serie A. They have failed to win their last four games in the league, and have lost twice during that run. Furthermore, they have picked up just one victory in their previous five attempts.
Sassuolo did pick up a decent point last weekend though, as they played out a 2-2 draw against Roma. However, they would have been frustrated not to have taken maximum points, as Roma equalised in the 94th minute.
Inter Milan vs Sassuolo Head to Head
Inter have won their last three meetings against Sassuolo. They are also unbeaten in their previous six against their rivals this weekend. Inter claimed a 2-1 success in the meeting between the two earlier in the campaign. Sassuolo’s last win against Inter came in August 2018.
Inter Milan vs Sassuolo Prediction
This could be the definition of a home banker this weekend. Inter need to respond after recent setbacks, and Sassuolo’s away record doesn’t give them much hope of an unlikely victory at the San Siro. A 2-0 win for Inter would be our pick.
