On Wednesday, Inter receives the visit of Sassuolo, in a match that counts for the 27th round of Serie A.
Inter – Far from first place
Antonio Conte came to Inter with great thoughts. He received a few top players, but it seems that he will end his season without a trophy. She was eliminated from the Champions League from the groups, after ranking only third with seven points, three less than Borussia Dortmund. The European course continues in the Europa League, where she qualified for the round of 16, after passing Ludogorets. In the cup he missed the chance to enter the final, being eliminated by Napoli. He has been having problems in the championship lately. Before the interruption of the championship, he lost two important matches with Lazio and Juventus and moved away from the first place. A few days ago he played at home with Sampdoria. Although he won 2-1, he did not have an easy match. The game does not connect and for this reason I do not think it will finish above the third place. Romelu Lukaku integrated extremely quickly and became the team’s top scorer with 18 successes in the championship.
- Probable team (3-4-1-2): Handanovic – Canes, Vrij, Skriniar – Young, Gagliardini, Barella, Candreva – Eriksen – Lukaku, Martinez
Sassuolo – A cold, a hot one
After the departure of Eusebio Di Frencesco, Sassuolo changed his style, and the results were not the best. In the previous season he ranked 11th, and now he is only one place away from that position. With 32 accumulated in the 26 stages, it is only on the 12th place, but with a little luck, it can climb a few places in the ranking. After the resumption of the championship, he went to Bergamo, where he suffered a painful defeat in front of Atalanta, score 1-4. The goal of honor was scored in the 90 + 2 minute, through Bourabia. Even if the score indicates a big difference, things on the field were not exactly like that. Sassuolo had chances, and in the 90 minutes he had more sutures on the goal area than Atalanta. He plays offensive football on his own field, but in the matches played on foreign field he evolves prudently. Bringing Francesco Caputo to the team was an inspired decision. He became the team’s top scorer with 13 successes.
- Probable team (4-2-3-1): Tips – Toljan, Chiriches, Ferrari, Kyriakopoulos – Obiang, Locatelli – Berardi, Djuricic, Boga – Caputo

Inter vs Sassuolo Picks
In the last five direct meetings, Sassuolo has won three times, and Inter only once. The last meeting was an attractive one, in which seven goals were scored. I expect a balanced match, which Sassuolo will not lose.
