Sassuolo are hosting Inter in another game from the 18th round of the Italian Serie A.
Could this be the year of Inter? The Nerrazurri are a changed team since the appointment of Luciano Spalletti. Right now Inter are third in the Serie A standings, but they are a real contender for the title. The Nerrazurri are just two points behind the leader Napoli, so their goal of winning the gold medals is more realistic than ever in the last few years.
Just a week ago Inter were leaders in the Serie A, but Spalletti’s team surprisingly lost against Udinese at the San Siro. Nobody expected that Inter is going to crumble like that, especially at home. But it happened. And now they don’t have any other choice, but to beat Sassuolo and continue the fight for the title.
As for Sassuolo, they are currently 15th in the Serie A standings with 17 points won so far. The team’s record is 5 wins, 2 draws and 10 defeats. Sassuolo are just 3 points above the 18th SPAL and the relegation zone in the Serie A, so they can’t be calm about their future in the league. They need more points – as many as possible, if they want to secure their survival.
Sassuolo can’t rely on the injured Timo Letschert for this game, while Claud Adjapong and Cristian Dell’Orco could miss the match because of injuries. Everyone else at Sassuolo is fit and healthy.
As for Inter, Luciano Spalletti can’t use the suspended Matias Vecino, while Joao Mario is recovering from a virus. It’s not clear if the Portuguese international is going to be avaliable for selection.
In our football betting tips we can conclude that it’s an important match for Inter, especially after the loss in the previous round. But Sassuolo have the home ground advantage, so be careful with them.
